Aviva savings and retirement head Clive Bolton is to leave the provider after 25 years. He will be succeeded by Lindsey Rix.
Bolton's exit as the group's savings and retirement managing director follows in the wake of the recent reshuffle of Aviva's senior management team, which saw it bring together the General Insurance, Health and Life businessess under the leadership of Aviva UK Insurance chief executive Andy Briggs.
Aviva said Bolton (pictured) had decided "that now is the right time to leave the business" after his 25 years of service with the provider.
Lindsey Rix, currently Aviva's Personal Lines UK General Insurance managing director, will take over Bolton's role and will be responsible for Aviva's platform business, annuities and equity release with a "global best practice remit".
Briggs said: "The management team we have announced today has the right experience and ambition and, with the benefits of our investment in digital, I am confident Aviva has what it takes to be the number-one choice for our partners and customers."
He added: "As the UK's largest insurer, we believe Aviva has a unique opportunity to grow in the UK. We want to provide a simple, more convenient and better value service to our customers and so we are bringing our UK businesses together - life insurance, general insurance and health insurance."
