Domestic and General (D&G) has announced the appointment of Matthew Crummack as CEO.
Crummack joins from GoCo Group, the home of the price comparison website GoCompare.com, where he served as group CEO from 2016.
Here, Crummack oversaw the company’s transition into a “digital platform business with more diversified and higher retention revenue streams”.
He left the business earlier this year after the sale of the company to publishing group, Future plc.
Between 2011 and 2015, Crummack was CEO of lastminute.com, the online travel and leisure business. He has also worked in senior roles at Expedia, Nestle, and Procter and Gamble.
Crummack will take up his new role on 4 October. His appointment follows the death of former CEO Ian Mason in April.
David Tyler, executive chairman of D&G, said: “Since the sudden and tragic death of Ian Mason in April, my top priority has been to find a CEO of the highest quality to succeed Ian.
“Matthew has exactly the combination of skills and experience we need at D&G as we deliver our ambitious growth strategy. He brings strong leadership and significant experience developing digital propositions for consumers.”
He added: “He has operated in global companies, and understands the dynamics of a strong customer-centric model rooted in subscriptions, which is what we have at D&G. We look forward to welcoming Matthew in October.”
