Aegon has appointed current UK life & pensions chief operating officer Simon Skinner as chief executive of Aegon Ireland.
Skinner replaces David Healy, who will leave Aegon Ireland at the end of August after 14 years at the company.
Aegon UK chief executive Adrian Grace (pictured) says: ““Aegon Ireland is well positioned to capitalise on the substantial growth opportunities for variable annuities, both in the UK and across Europe.
“I’ve worked closely with Simon in the two years since he joined Aegon and I’m confident he is the right person to lead Aegon Ireland through the next phase of its development.”
An Aegon UK spokeswoman says Skinner’s replacement will be announced “shortly”.
