“Adam’s talent and capability have been amply demonstrated in his leadership of our successful programme of eight divestments over the past eight months. Having now concluded the strategic refocusing of our portfolio, I am delighted to appoint him to this pivotal role, and his next challenge in Aviva.”

Winslow added: “The General Insurance business in the UK and Ireland is an area of huge strength for Aviva, but also a business with exciting growth potential that I want to help realise. I’m looking forward to getting after that growth, working closely with our important broker partners, and supporting the delivery of our strategy.”
