LONDON, Sept 24 British insurance group Aviva
has appointed a new head of its UK and Ireland general
insurance business, as the group's shake-up under its new chief
executive continues apace.
Maurice Tullock will become CEO of Aviva UK and Ireland
General Insurance, moving from his current job running the
group's Canadian business and replacing Robin Spencer who will
leave the firm.
"One of my priorities since becoming CEO has been to
strengthen Aviva's management team and ensure we have the right
people in the right jobs," the group's chief executive, Mark
Wilson, said in a statement on Tuesday.
Wilson joined the firm from AIA Group in January
with a remit to turn the business around in the wake of an
investor revolt in 2012 that forced out his predecessor.
Under his tenure Aviva has pushed ahead with withdrawing
from non-core businesses and trimming staff numbers.
