Lloyds Banking Group deputy chair Anita Frew has stepped down as senior non-executive director of Aberdeen Asset Management.
Frew had been on the board of the asset manager since 2004 but will be replaced on a temporary basis by former Cazenove partner Simon Troughton.
Frew was formerly head of equity investment at Scottish Provident.
Aberdeen says it is currently seeking a permanent replacement for Frew.
A stock exchange announcement says: “Aberdeen would like to confirm that the board is at present conducting interviews to identify a suitable replacement and that an announcement will be made in due course.”
