Aviva has announced the appointment of Adam Winslow to CEO, UK and Ireland general insurance

Winslow was most recently CEO of Aviva’s international businesses responsible for overseeing Aviva’s strategic divestment programme.  

In his new role, he will continue to report to Aviva’s CEO Amanda Blanc and be a member of its executive committee. He replaces Colm Holmes who is leaving Aviva for an “external opportunity”.

He has over 20 years’ experience in the general and life insurance industry, including roles at AIG and Allianz. Winslow brings senior management experience in personal and commercial lines, across operations and broker relationships. 

Earlier in his career, Adam was director of partnerships and director of retail at Aviva, responsible for running some of Aviva’s most “significant general insurance partnerships”.

Amanda Blanc, group CEO, said: “Aviva is a market leader in general insurance in the UK and Ireland, with significant ambitions for growth as we transform the performance of our core businesses following the reshaping of the group.

“Adam’s talent and capability have been amply demonstrated in his leadership of our successful programme of eight divestments over the past eight months. Having now concluded the strategic refocusing of our portfolio, I am delighted to appoint him to this pivotal role, and his next challenge in Aviva.”
