Direct Line Insurance Group Plc (Direct Line Group or DLG), which last year announced Adam Winslow’s imminent arrival in the first quarter of 2024, has now confirmed the incoming chief executive’s start date.

“Adam Winslow will join the group as chief executive officer on March 1, 2024,” the insurer said in a London Stock Exchange filing. “Adam’s appointment to the board of Direct Line Group is to be with effect from March 21, 2024.”

On the same day that Winslow is joining the board, DLG will publish its 2023 preliminary results.

Currently on gardening leave, Winslow previously served as UK & Ireland general insurance chief at Aviva. His departure saw Aviva group CEO Amanda Blanc return to the Association of British Insurers board. The former ABI chair replaced Winslow as Aviva’s representative to the line-up.
