Aviva Chairman to step down

Aviva Chairman Sir Adrian Montague

Aviva plc has announced that Sir Adrian Montague has informed the Board of his intention to retire as Chairman of the Company in 2020 once a successor has been appointed.

Sir Adrian was appointed Chairman of Aviva in April 2015, having joined as a Non-Executive Director in January 2013. The Board has initiated a process for the appointment of a successor.

Sir Adrian Montague, Chairman, said:

“When I became Chairman in 2015 the Board asked me to commit to serve for at least five years. Now that Maurice has launched Aviva’s strategy, a new senior management team is in place and the Board has been refreshed, it is also time for a new Chairman. In the meantime I remain committed to this great organisation which I am confident will deliver for all its customers, employees and shareholders”.

George Culmer, Senior Independent Director, said:

“On behalf of the Board, I would like to express our deep thanks to Adrian for his service, leadership and guidance over the past seven years. Adrian has chaired Aviva through a period of considerable change and departs with our very best wishes for the strong legacy he leaves”.
