Aviva plc (“Aviva” or the “Company”) has appointed Mr Patrick Flynn as an Independent Non-Executive Director of the Company with effect from 16 July 2019. He will also join the Board Audit, Risk and Nomination Committees.

Patrick was previously the Chief Financial Officer of ING, the Netherland’s largest financial services group, and was recognised for playing a key role in the transformation of the group to a well-capitalised and focused financial services provider with a significant retail offering.

Prior to his role at ING Patrick was Chief Financial Officer of HSBC Insurance and has served as a Non-Executive Director on the boards of two listed former ING insurance companies.

I am delighted to welcome Patrick to the Aviva Board. Patrick is an experienced finance executive and he has significant experience of both retail financial and insurance services. Patrick has a strong reputation in the European market and he will be a great asset to the Board. I very much look forward to working with him.
