Mark Wilson who has just been appointed the new Chief Executive of Aviva said he will continue a company revival plan.
Mr Wilson said he intended to execute the strategy with "rigour and focus".
There is substantial work to do. I am looking forward to taking up this appointment and excited about the future prospects for Aviva.
In July, Aviva unveiled a major sell-off plan after a review of 58 divisions had identified 16 weak performers that would be sold.
And last month the Norwich-based insurance group, which employs 18,500 people in the UK, warned that up to 800 jobs could be lost under the restructuring plan.
