Taplin's business partner Robert Rackliffe, who launched Aurora with him in 2002 and has been joint chief executive since, will continue to advise on a daily basis.
Wentworth Rose chief executive Tudor Taylor, who took control of the firm from chairman Philip Rose in April when Aegon bought the remaining 50 per cent stake, becomes managing director, business development and corporate.
Momentum managing director Paul Johnston, who engineered a management buyout of the company from Aon in 2000 and sold to Aegon in 2002, is leaving to pursue his own interests while Elliot Bayley managing director Chris Cotton will continue in his present role, having decided not to become part of the board.
