September 17, 2010 by N/A
LONDON: British insurer Aviva has begun the search for a new chairman to replace Colin Sharman, the Times reported on Thursday.
Potential candidates for the top job include John Varley, who will step down from his role as Barclays chief executive next year, and Paul Myners, the former financial services minister, the Times said.
Aviva could not be reached for comment by Reuters outside regular office hours. Aviva has appointed headhunters MWM Consulting and JCA Associates to draw up a list of potential replacements for Sharman, who has held the post for nearly five years, the newspaper said.
The Times cited people close to the situation as saying Sharman was not under pressure to step down.
