The former Channel 4 CEO and Unilever marketer is stepping down from the role to take up a position outside the automotive industry, according to HR Owen.
HR Owen has been appointing senior executives with marketing as it looks to grow the business, first Duncan and then September’s appointment of former Nokia marketer Chris Harris as its first marketing director to lead the strategy, which will focus on personalisation and membership.
Duncan also brought Harris on board to lead the development of digital communications.
Joe Doyle, currently regional managing director at vehicle provenance data company HPI and automotive software company Autadex, will replace Duncan as HR Owen’s chief executive at the end of October.
At the time of going to press HR Owen spokespeople were unavailable to confirm the company Duncan will be moving to.
