Aviva hunts for Sharman’s replacement

first_img KCS-content INSURANCE group Aviva has begun its search for a new chairman in time for Colin Sharman’s planned departure in 2013, people close to the company confirmed yesterday. Potential candidates for the job include former Aviva chief executive Richard Harvey, outgoing Barclays chief executive John Varley and ex-financial services minister Paul Myners. Myners declined to comment, while Harvey and Varley did not return calls for comment yesterday. People close to Aviva said yesterday that Sharman was not under pressure to step down, and that the search was still in its early stages. “It’s all part of sensible forward planning for a successor for any FTSE company,” one source said. Reports claimed the insurer has appointed headhunters MWM Consulting and JCA Associates to sound out potential replacements. However, neither firm would comment yesterday, and a source said the search had not yet reached the stage of hiring headhunters. Aviva declined to comment. Sharman, 67, has been chairman of the firm since January 2006, after joining the board in 2005. He was appointed to the House of Lords in 1999. His departure will be one of several high profile reshuffles at the top of FTSE 100 firms. HSBC and Vodafone are also hunting for replacement bosses, while Barclays named Bob Diamond as its new head last week. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.com whatsapp Sharecenter_img Tags: NULL Aviva hunts for Sharman’s replacement Show Comments ▼ Thursday 16 September 2010 8:47 pm More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comlast_img read more
