In the punning near-equivalent of trying his luck in Hull, Aviva survivor Patrick Snowball will brave the heat of the CEO seat at Australian insurer Suncorp.

It’s the sort of thing you couldn’t script, which may explain Snowball’s comment that “Mr Story and the Board have been very open about the challenges Suncorp faces.” He also claims improbably that “My family and I are looking forward to relocating to Australia and setting up home in Brisbane”

No doubt keen not to melt their new recruit with too warm a welcome, Suncorp stressed that they had carried out an “exhaustive national and international search” before appointing him to bring about a hoped-for period of “fundamental change and renewed growth as the Group reshapes itself to respond to the challenges of the external market.”
