Prudential has appointed Mike Evans as Chair of M&G Prudential in preparation for its planned demerger. He joins the Board of M&G Prudential with immediate effect.

Evans has 36 years of savings and investments experience and has served as Chairman of Hargreaves Lansdown plc and of ZPG plc. He has also worked as the Chief Operating Officer of Skandia UK, as a non-executive director of esure Group plc and as the Senior Independent Director of Chesnara plc. He is currently Chairman of Just Eat plc.
 
Evans’ appointment is the latest step in the planned demerger of M&G Prudential from Prudential plc, which will result in two separately listed companies. The appointment has been approved by the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Conduct Authority. Further appointments to the Board of M&G Prudential will be announced in due course.
 
Paul Manduca, Chairman of Prudential plc, says: “I am pleased that Mike Evans has joined M&G Prudential as Chair. His extensive boardroom experience and track record with UK listed businesses will be great assets during the demerger and when M&G Prudential becomes an independent company.”
 
John Foley, Chief Executive of M&G Prudential, says: “I am delighted that Mike has been appointed as Chair of M&G Prudential, working with us on our journey to independence and, above all, as we continue to deliver great outcomes for our millions of customers.”
 
Evans says: “This is an exciting time to be joining M&G Prudential, which is a strong business with lots of opportunities for growth in the UK and international savings and investment markets. I look forward to working with John and his team as we become an independent business.”
