Ex-Friends Provident CFO takes IFG role

Evelyn Bourke recruited to board of financial services provider IFG as non-executive director

Ex-FTSE 100 CFO Evelyn Bourke has taken a non-executive director’s role at financial services provider IFG.

Bourke (pictured) was formerly chief finance officer of Friends Provident prior to its merger with Axa UK Life.

When she took the role at Axa UK Life, she was one of only four other female CFOs in the FTSE 100 alongside Julia Wilson at 3i, Stacy Cartwright at Burberry and Cairn Energy’s Jaan Brown.

Bourke joined Friends Provident as CFO in 2009 latterly becoming chief commercial officer responsible for strategy and capital.

Other senior roles under her belt include CFO of Standard Life, CEO of Chase de Vere Investements and CFO of Nascent Life.

Joe Moran, chairman of IFG, said: “I am delighted that Evelyn has agreed to join the IFG board. She brings a wealth of experience in UK financial services which is particularly useful given the increased scale of our UK business following the acquisition of James Hay”.
