EVELYN BOURKE is the new CFO of Bupa. Bourke joins from Friends Life, where she was chief commercial officer and latterly CEO of its heritage division.
A qualified actuary, she served as CFO at Friends Provident, where she was interviewed by sister publication Financial Director.
Stuart Fletcher, Bupa’s chief executive, said: “I am delighted that Evelyn is joining Bupa as chief financial officer, especially given her significant knowledge of the insurance sector and her experience of being a CFO in two large businesses.”
Evelyn will be taking over from acting group finance director, Neil Taylor, who took on the role following Tom Singer’s departure. Singer, a former Accountancy Age interviewee, left Bupa in September 2011 to join Intercontinental Hotels as CFO.
“Neil’s leadership of the finance function is greatly appreciated by the Board,” Bupa said in its statement to the stock exchange.
After a handover period with Bourke, Taylor will return to his role as finance and development director for Bupa Care Services. Bourke’s start date is yet to be confirmed.
