Aviva’s Trevor Matthews to exit

Trevor Matthews, executive director of developed markets and former UK chief executive at Aviva, will step down from the board prior to this year’s annual general meeting and will leave the firm.

Matthews, who joined the board at the end of 2011, will continue in an advisory capacity for a number of months to ensure a smooth transition of his responsibilities.  

The life company has also made a raft of appointments under the leadership of new group chief executive officer Mark Wilson.

David McMillan has been appointed CEO of Aviva Europe and will be the member of the group executive accountable for our businesses in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Lithuania and Russia. He will also become chair of Aviva’s French Board.

Nick Amin is joining Aviva as group transformation director and will become a member of the group executive, reporting to Wilson.

Jason Windsor will join the group executive as chief strategy and development officer.

These changes are with immediate effect and subject to appropriate regulatory approval.

They follow the announcement on 28 January 2013 of the appointment of Khor Hock Seng as CEO of Aviva Asia. He will assume the role on 8 March.

Wilson, chief executive officer of Aviva, said: ‘These changes are about ensuring we have the right people in the right jobs and that we have the best possible leadership team so Aviva can achieve its undoubted potential.

'David McMillan’s and Jason Windsor’s new roles recognise the strength of their achievements during 2012. Nick Amin and Khor Hock Seng are exceptional additions to the team. I would also like to thank Trevor Matthews for his considerable contribution to Aviva and wish him well for his future.'
