Pat Regan, chief financial officer of Aviva, will be leaving the group in June to join QBE as its chief financial officer based in Sydney, Australia.
Regan (pictured) joined the group in February 2010 as CFO and was appointed to the board as an executive director.
Mark Wilson, Aviva’s chief executive officer, says: “After a successful career at Aviva, Pat has decided to take a new role outside the group. Pat has been a tremendous support in assisting me with Aviva’s financial transformation. I am supportive of his decision, and he leaves with my best wishes and those of Aviva’s board.”
Regan says: "Whilst I am excited about my new role at QBE, I am also sad to be leaving Aviva. Aviva is a great business with a bright future ahead of it. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark and I wish him and everyone who works for Aviva all the best for the future.”
