UK-headquartered Aviva Plc has appointed Canadian national Thomas Neil Morrison to its board as a non-executive director.

The former Platform Insurance Management chair and managing partner brings more than 38 years of Canadian insurance industry experience to the Aviva board. Morrison presently chairs Canada-based cybersecurity, prevention, and insurance provider BOXX Insurance.

Appointed by Aviva on June 17, Morrison is a past chair of the Insurance Institute of Canada and a past chair of Worldwide Broker Network. His credentials also include time spent at Hub International.

Aviva noted: “Neil’s knowledge of Aviva’s products and operations, the London market as a past Lloyd’s coverholder, and the competitive and regulatory landscape Aviva operates within makes him a valuable addition to the board.”

The new non-executive director, who is also currently a board observer of InsurePay Inc., will become a member of Aviva’s nomination & governance and risk committees.

Board chair George Culmer commented: “I am delighted to welcome Neil to the board. Neil brings significant experience of the Canadian market, together with deep insurance knowledge, and I’m sure he will make a great contribution to the group.”
