Aviva is to combine its life, general and health insurance businesses under the leadership of former life insurance head Andy Briggs.
Briggs (pictured) will take the position of CEO UK insurance following the changes, while former global general insurance chairman Maurice Tulloch will become CEO of international insurance.
Briggs held high-ranking positions at Scottish Widows, Lloyds Banking Group and Prudential before becoming group chief executive at Friends Life, which was taken over by Aviva in April 2015. He also took on the role of chairman of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) in October.
Aviva's £5.6bn takeover of Friends Life created a business with 16 million customers, one of the biggest insurance, savings and asset management businesses in the UK.
