Aviva appoints Patricia Cross as non-executive director


Aviva has appointed Patricia Cross as an independent non-executive director of the board with effect from 1 December 2013.

She will also join the board audit, remuneration and nomination committees. 
Cross (pictured) has over 30 years’ experience as both an executive and non-executive director across a wide range of financial services and other regulated industries in the US, Europe and Australia. She has served as a non-executive director of ASX-50 Australian companies for 17 years, and is currently a non-executive director of Macquarie Group and Macquarie Bank where she is chairman of the risk committee and a member of the audit committee. She is also a non-executive director at Qantas Airways where she is chairman of the remuneration committee and is a member of the audit and nomination committees.
Until recently, Cross was a non-executive director of National Australia Bank (owner of Clydesdale Bank in the UK), where she chaired the remuneration committee, was a nominated FCA Approved Person, served as a director of the wealth management subsidiary JB Were, and was a member of the risk and nomination committees.
Cross has previously been a non-executive director of Wesfarmers, Suncorp-Metway and AMP, all listed companies in Australia, and also served as chairman of Qantas Superannuation Limited (the Qantas pension fund) and deputy chairman of the monoline third party insurer TAC in Victoria. 
Prior to becoming a non-executive director, Cross worked for 16 years in senior executive positions at National Australia Bank, Chase Manhattan Bank, Chase Investment Bank and Banque Nationale de Paris.
John McFarlane, chairman of Aviva, says: “I am delighted to welcome Patricia to the board of Aviva. Patricia brings a wealth of financial services, risk and corporate governance experience to Aviva. Patricia’s appointment is part of our ongoing programme to refresh the board. I look forward to working with Patricia over the coming years.”
