Search for replacement chief finance officer continues

Aviva has appointed the chief executive of its European business Andrea Moneta, to its plc board but not as chief finance officer, a role he has held elsewhere.

Moneta joined Aviva in July 2008 to lead Aviva’s European operations outside the UK. He has been chief finance officer for Unicredit in the past. He was managing director of Dubai Financial Group and has worked for the European Central Bank and Accenture.

Lord Sharman, chairman of Aviva, said: “I am delighted that Andrea will join the board. Andrea’s deep experience in European financial services and his understanding of banking partnerships is a real asset as we develop Aviva internationally and further strengthen our bancassurance capability.”

Andrew Moss, group chief executive, said: “Andrea is leading the transformation of Aviva’s European business. He is an outstanding leader whose entrepreneurial approach, vision, and track record in financial services will help Aviva realise its full potential in Europe.”
