Cathryn Riley and Keith Nicholson have been appointed as non-executive directors as a result of the retirement of Vanni Treves and Jean Wood from the board.
Riley is chief operating officer and chief information officer, Europe at Aviva. Nicholson left KPMG this year after more than 30 years with the firm.
Equitable Life chairman Ian Brimecome says: “These important appointments, together with the recent arrival of Chris Wiscarson as Chief Executive, are key to building the new team that will take the society to forward. I would also put on record, our thanks to Vanni Treves and Jean Wood who worked tirelessly for policyholders through some very difficult times since 2001.’
