Adrian Emery appointed as Friends Provident International CEO.
Friends Provident International (FPI), part of the Aviva group, announces today the appointment of Adrian Emery as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect.
Khor Hock Seng current Chief Executive Officer, Aviva Asia and Friends Provident International (FPI), will leave the Group at the end of October to join Great Eastern as its Group Chief Executive Officer, based in Singapore. While Mr Khor has only been in post as FPI CEO for a short time, he joined Aviva in early 2013 as CEO Aviva Asia and during his tenure led the turnaround of the region, delivering strong VNB growth across Aviva's core markets in Asia. Chris Wei, Executive Chairman, Aviva Asia and FPI and Global Chairman, Aviva Digital, will continue to oversee the region and lead growth strategy of both Aviva Asia and FPI.
Adrian joined Aviva in January 2015 as Director of Business Development for Global Life. In this role Adrian had responsibility for the distribution advisory capabilities for Global Life, including for the Asian markets, and most recently has helped to lead the integration of FPI into Aviva Asia.
James Tan, MD Hong Kong; Marcus Gent, MD Middle East; and Chris Gill, General Manager, SE Asia will continue in their roles at FPI.
Chris Wei, Chairman FPI, said, "It has been a great pleasure working with Khor. He is an excellent leader and his knowledge of the insurance industry in Asia is extensive. I would like to wish him all the best in the next stage of his career.
"I am delighted that Adrian, having spent the past few months appreciating the history of FPI and its growth opportunities across Asia and the Middle East, has agreed to take on the role as CEO of Friends Provident International."
Adrian Emery, CEO FPI, said, "I am excited to take on this new challenge. Having recently had the opportunity to work closely with the FPI business and its people, I see significant potential for growth particularly in the high net worth and expatriate markets."
