Aviva Life & Pensions Ireland announces appointment of new Interim CEO

Aviva Life and Pensions Ireland has announced the appointment of Dave Swanton as Interim Chief Executive Officer, subject to regulatory approval, following Dave Elliot’s appointment to a new role within the Aviva Group.  Dave Swanton will take up his role shortly and will work closely with Dave Elliot over the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition. Dave Swanton’s interim appointment will enable Aviva to complete a comprehensive search process to recruit the best candidate to replace Dave Elliot in driving our life business forward in Ireland in the coming years.

Dave Swanton is currently a board director with the Aviva Life and Pensions Ireland business.  He also has significant senior management experience across a range of roles in the life insurance industry. 

I look forward to working closely with Dave Swanton as he continues to build on the development of our business and deliver for our customers and brokers. I would also like to express our gratitude to Dave Elliot for his significant contribution in developing and improving our life business over the last two years.
