Aviva strengthens board with ex-PwC partner

Aviva has appointed Glyn Barker as an independent non-executive director, with immediate effect.

Mr Barker most recently held the post of vice chairman UK of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), with responsibility for leading the group’s executive team for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India.

During his career as a partner at PwC, he advised the boards of several FTSE 100 companies on a variety of corporate and financial issues and built PwC’s private equity focused transactions business.

He is currently a non-executive director of property developer, Berkeley Group Holdings, and a trustee of English National Opera.

Commenting on Mr Barker’s abilities, Aviva chairman, Lord Sharman of Redlynch, says: “His experience, both as a professional advisor to major companies and a senior member of PwC’s management team, will stand him in great stead for his non-executive role at Aviva.”

Adding: “This, combined with his wealth of audit and regulatory knowledge, will further strengthen the Aviva board.”
