Aviva Strengthens Leadership Team

                Aviva strengthens leadership team

As Aviva moves into the next stage of its transformation, Mark Wilson,
Group Chief Executive Officer, has made a number of appointments to
strengthen his leadership team. These changes have three clear aims:
first, to ensure Aviva has strong business leaders in all its key
markets; second, to drive outstanding execution; and third, to enhance
some of Aviva's core insurance centres of excellence globally.

David McMillan has been appointed CEO of Aviva Europe. David will be
the member of the Group Executive accountable for our businesses in
Spain, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Lithuania and Russia and he will become
Chair of Aviva's French Board. Most recently he was Group
Transformation Director and before that was CEO of Aviva's UK General
Insurance business. This appointment recognises David's positive
impact on the business during his time as Transformation Director.

Nick Amin is joining Aviva as Group Transformation Director and will
become a member of the Group Executive, reporting to Mark Wilson. Nick
has a very strong background in driving change across multiple cultures
and geographies in the insurance sector, in both Cigna and AIA. Nick
was instrumental in the transformation of AIA and preparing the company
for IPO.

Jason Windsor will join the Group Executive as Chief Strategy and
Development Officer. This appointment recognises the success and
ability Jason demonstrated over the past 12 months leading Aviva's
strategic review and disposal programme.

Aviva Investors is a core asset of the Group and Jason Windsor will
take on the additional executive responsibility of Aviva Investors,
reporting to Mark Wilson. Jason will work with Paul Abberley, Aviva
Investors' interim CEO, to ensure the business is positioned to perform
to its potential. Pat Regan will continue as Chairman of Aviva
Investors in addition to his other responsibilities.

David Angulo will broaden his remit to take on global responsibility
for driving the development of our bancassurance distribution across
Aviva. He will work alongside our business leaders to improve value
from existing relationships and support the development of new
relationships. David will report to Nick Amin.

These changes are with immediate effect and subject to appropriate
regulatory approval. They follow the announcement on 28 January 2013
of the appointment of Khor Hock Seng as CEO of Aviva Asia. He will
assume the role on 8 March and his appointment reaffirms our commitment
to selected markets in Asia where we can build scale and deliver
consistent returns.

As a result of these changes Trevor Matthews will not stand for
re-election at the 2013 Annual General Meeting and will step down from
the Board on the day prior to this year's AGM. Trevor has broad
insurance experience and he has added stability to the Group's
developed markets during a period of business change. Trevor will
continue in an advisory capacity for a number of months to ensure a
smooth transition of his responsibilities.

Mark Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of Aviva plc, said:"These changes are
about ensuring we have the right people in the right
jobs and that we have the best possible leadership team so Aviva can
achieve its undoubted potential. David McMillan's and Jason Windsor's
new roles recognise the strength of their achievements during 2012.
Nick Amin and Khor Hock Seng are exceptional additions to the team. I
would also like to thank Trevor Matthews for his considerable
contribution to Aviva and wish him well for his future."

On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.
