Aviva chief Seymour-Jackson to join RAC

Aviva distribution director for UK Life Angela Seymour-Jackson, who has been leading the firm’s RDR work, is moving to the group’s motoring services subsidiary RAC.

The move will see Seymour-Jackson appointed managing director of RAC. She will report to Aviva UK general insurance chief executive David McMillan.

Seymour-Jackson has hel-ped lead Aviva’s RDR resp- onse since its former director of distribution development Stephen Gay announced he was leaving in September to join Aifa.

Aviva corporate and consumer partnerships director Graham Boffey takes on Seymour-Jackson’s responsibility for UK Life distribution.

Syndaxi Financial Planning director Rob Reid says: “Any change in senior personnel gives an opportunity to revisit some of the decisions already made. Given that the RDR has become a dynamic beast, this is no bad thing.”

On November 2, Aviva ann-ounced plans to make £200m of cost savings and £200m of efficiency savings as it unveiled an increase in UK sales in Q3. The firm is looking to cut costs across the group, with £100m of savings coming from the UK. It says there will be no UK job losses.
