UK - Tim Breedon, CEO of insurance group Legal & General (L&G), is to retire from the company at the end of 2012, when he will have completed a quarter of a century at the insurer.
Breedon, also chairman of the Association of British Insurers, took up his current post in 2006.
"It has been an absolute privilege to lead Legal & General, but by the end of 2012 I will have completed 25 years service with the company and will have been CEO for seven years," he said.
"With the company in excellent shape I feel that next year will be the right time to retire from the company."
L&G said the process to appoint Breedon's successor will begin shortly.
