Trevor Matthews takes up Bupa Australia NED role

Mr Matthews, who left the UK in 2013 after a stint as executive director of Aviva to return to his native Australia, said he is “enjoying non-executive board life”.

According to his lengthening LinkedIn profile, Mr Matthews has also taken up a non-executive directorship at FNZ Australia - which has been looking to make more inroads into the UK - and this year has become non-executive director for travel insurer Cover-More Insurance as well as Bupa Australia.

Mr Matthews was chief executive of Friends Life before its acquisition by Resolution in 2009. He was replaced by Andy Briggs in 2011.
