AVIVA appoints its International Insurance CEO, Maurice TULLOCH, to the top executive position

Aviva plc ("Aviva") announced Maurice TULLOCH will become Chief Executive Officer with effect from today, 4 March 2019.

Sir Adrian Montague, Chairman of Aviva, who has been acting in an executive capacity pending the appointment of a CEO, will revert to his role as non-executive Chairman on 4th March 2019.

Maurice joined Aviva in 1992 and was appointed to the Board of Aviva plc in June 2017. Maurice was up to this moment Aviva's Chief Executive Officer, International Insurance and has responsibility for Aviva's life insurance and general insurance operations in France, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Turkey and India. He was previously Chief Executive Officer of Aviva UK and Ireland General Insurance, one of the largest businesses in the Aviva group.

Adrian MONTAGUE, Chairman of Aviva, said: "Maurice will be an outstanding Chief Executive of Aviva. He knows the business inside out. He has led our businesses in the UK and internationally and built strong teams across life insurance and general insurance. Maurice knows our strengths, knows where we need to improve and has a deep understanding of insurance and customers' needs. He is exceptionally well qualified to re-energise Aviva and deliver long-term growth.

"The Board has run a thorough and highly competitive process and we have interviewed external candidates alongside highly experienced and respected internal candidates. This process led to a unanimous conclusion and a great result for Aviva."

Maurice TULLOCH, Chief Executive Officer of Aviva, said: I am honored to lead Aviva, a business I've been part of for 26 years. There is a clear opportunity to realize Aviva's significant but untapped potential. Aviva is financially strong, we have a well-known brand and excellent businesses. But there is more to do to improve returns for shareholders.

We must focus on the fundamentals of insurance and giving our customers the best possible experience - being there when they need us, protecting what's important to them and helping them save for the future. With the care and professionalism of our dedicated people, I know Aviva will thrive.
