Aviva has opened a new office in Chicago to house its North American region executive team functions.
The North American region will provide leadership and support for the company’s overall North American business strategy, business development, finance, corporate affairs, and human resources. Aviva’s North American businesses include life insurance and annuities in the US.
Aviva’s existing life insurance operations will continue to be headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa; existing general insurance operations will continue to be headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
Andrew Moss, group CEO of Aviva, said: With its diverse economy and central location, Chicago is an ideal city for Aviva to continue to help drive growth in our strong long-term savings, asset management and general insurance businesses in North America. North America is a high-growth market for Aviva and we plan to build the global Aviva brand and steer the expansion of our business across the US and Canada.
