Norwich Union appoints Iveson as new IR chief

Insurer Norwich Union has appointed Rebecca Iveson to the newly created role of investor relations manager.

Insurer Norwich Union has appointed Rebecca Iveson to the newly

created role of investor relations manager.



Iveson, who took up the post this week, joins from the Chiroscience

Group, where she was head of corporate and investor relations for a year

and a half. Her previous roles include associate director of Shandwick

Consultants, director of investor relations services at Medialink and

vice president of US-based IR consultancy DF King and Co. Iveson has

worked as a corporate and investor relations specialist for FTSE 250

companies and other international clients for the past ten years.



’The new position is a consequence of Norwich’s flotation in 1997.

During that time there was a feeling that this was a role we needed to

have,’ a spokesman said.



Iveson will work with Brunswick PR, which handles Norwich’s PR. She will

report to Norwich Union’s group financial controller Philip Easter.



’This is a new position created because the company’s investor relations

was done in a relatively ad hoc way up until now. My appointment will

formalise the IR strategy. I will be building on the progress which has

been made so far and turning investor relations into a more cohesive

function,’ said Iveson.



Norwich Union also retains QBO for its healthcare and general insurance

and Penrose for its investment PR.
