Aviva has appointed Tumelo CEO Georgia Stewart to its Independent Governance Committee (IGC).
Stewart, who replaces Robert Talbut, joins as a non-independent member due to Aviva’s partnership with pension engagement company Tumelo.
Emma Douglas, director of workplace savings and retirement at Aviva said: “Stewart’s passion for ESG and member engagement will help the IGC monitor Aviva’s ambitious net-zero carbon targets, both from a corporate and an investment perspective.”
Stewart added: “I am delighted to join Aviva’s Independent Governance Committee. I am passionate about ESG, stewardship and the representation of member voices in these forums. I also believe that the pension industry still has much to learn from the rapid change undertaken across the fintech sector such as transparency and connectivity initiatives like open banking or communication and behavioural science techniques like personalisation and gamification. I hope my background will bring a new facet to this committee as we undertake a holistic value for money assessment on behalf of the members we represent.”
