Bupa's award-winning pandemic response in the UK, as the first major health
insurer to offer a member and customer Covid rebate.

David Hynam will join LV= on 26 September 2022. He succeeds Mark Hartigan who

interim role and will be leaving the business at the end of the month.


Simon Moore, LV= chair, said:

"In securing the services of David Hynam, LV= has acquired a truly
market-leading chief executive. He is the ideal candidate to help LV= continue
to build a strong and sustainable future as a mutual life and pensions
business and that our mutual values thrive for the benefit of our members.


"David brings with him a track record of hugely successful leadership in the
insurance sector, while his extensive experience working with distribution
partners, intermediaries and brokers, means he is a perfect fit for LV='s
mutual business model.


"As well as his commercial and technical knowledge of the insurance sector and
financial services, it is David's values-driven approach and strong track
record of business transformation and growth that makes him the right person
to lead LV= into the next exciting phase of its future as part of a resurgent
mutual sector.


"Under my tenure, LV= will be a leading example of the value that mutuality
can bring both to its members and wider society and David is going to be a
very important part of that."


"I look forward to introducing David at our AGM in October, as his appointment
marks a new era for LV=.  At the AGM I will also give an unprecedented
address directly to our members so that they are the first to hear about the
steps David and I are taking to demonstrate that transparency and fairness
will be at the heart of our mutual business going forward."


David Hynam, incoming LV= chief executive, said:


"LV= is both a trusted brand and a company with a fantastic purpose. I am
excited to be part of the future growth of LV= and look forward to driving
opportunities, whilst meeting challenges head on. My priorities will be to
work with the team at LV= to deliver a true mutual culture, realise LV='s huge
distribution potential and drive business performance so that we deliver the
best possible outcomes for our members, advisers and colleagues."
