AVIVA announced is bringing its UK insurance businesses together - life insurance, general insurance and health insurance - under the leadership of Andy BRIGGS. Andy will become CEO UK Insurance, responsible for all AVIVA's insurance businesses in the UK.

Moreover, Maurice TULLOCH will become CEO International Insurance, responsible for AVIVA's insurance operations in France, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Poland, Turkey and India. "Both appointments are subject to regulatory approval", as the insurer announced in a press release.

At the same time, "as a result of these structural changes, David McMillan, Chairman AVIVA Global Health Insurance and CEO AVIVA Europe, has chosen to leave AVIVA".

"We see significant opportunities to differentiate our business in the UK post-Brexit.  We like the UK, we are investing in the UK, and we are growing in the UK", said Mark WILSON, Group Chief Executive Officer.

 "Our priorities are to continue to deepen our position in our home UK market with our 16 million customers, and to continue to grow in our core international markets to diversify and strengthen AVIVA. This puts us in a peer group of one".

The insurer announced AVIVA Investors, AVIVA Asia and the Digital businesses will remain as separate entities. Chris WEI remains Executive Chairman of AVIVA Asia and Global Chairman of AVIVA Digital and Euan MUNRO remains CEO of AVIVA Investors.
