Apr 25, 2019-

LONDON: British insurer Aviva said on Wednesday that Andy Briggs, head of its UK insurance business, was stepping down from the company, just weeks after missing out on its top job to newly installed Chief Executive Maurice Tulloch. Briggs will remain with the insurer until Oct. 23 to support an orderly transition, Aviva said in a statement. He joined the Board of Aviva in April 2015 to lead its enlarged UK Life business following the takeover of Friends Life where he served as Group Chief Executive. The company said Briggs would be granted ‘good leaver’ status and therefore be eligible both for a pro-rated bonus in respect of the 2019 financial year and to retain awards applicable under its Long-Term Incentive Plan. Angela Darlington, currently Aviva’s Group Chief Risk Officer, will become interim chief executive of UK Insurance. (REUTERS)
