IAG has announced the appointment of a new, non-executive director following the retirement of a current board member.

Tom Pockett has been added to the board of the insurer while Peter Bush will retire on 1 January.

Pockett is a non-executive director of Stocklacnd Corporation, a director of Sunnyfield Independence Association and O’Connell St Associates.

Previously, he spent 11 years as CFO and more than seven years as finance director with Woolworths having retired from those roles in February and July 2014 respectively.

Bush will retire from the IAG board in the New Year and Schwartz took time to thank him for his services.
