Prudential has appointed former Aviva financial control director Nicolaos Nicandrou as its chief financial officer and group board director.

Nicandrou, also former Norwich Union Life finance director and board member, will succeed Tidjane Thiam, who will become group chief executive on October 1, 2009.

Nicandrou says: “I am delighted to be joining Prudential and look forward to working with Tidjane. Prudential is ideally placed in terms of its unique geographic exposure, capital strength and leadership capability, to continue its outperformance over the cycle.”
