GREENE: The British insurance company Aviva announced Tuesday that their CEO has resigned. This came after shareholders rejected Andrew Moss' $8 million pay package. The shareholders cited discrepancies between executive pay and corporate performance. Company shares have dropped by a third over the past year.
