Moneysupermarket.com Group has announced the appointment of Peter Duffy as its new chief executive officer.
Duffy will succeed Mark Lewis who, as announced in February, is stepping down as CEO. Duffy is currently CEO of Just Eat Limited and before that was chief commercial officer at EasyJet and marketing director of Audi UK.
He started his career in banking, holding positions with Barclays, Yorkshire Bank and TSB. Duffy is a non-executive director of Close Brothers Group plc, where he is a member of the Risk Committee.
Duffy will take up the position of CEO and join the board on 1 September 2020, subject to normal regulatory approvals.
Robin Freestone, chair of Moneysupermarket, said: “After an extensive search, we’re pleased to appoint Peter Duffy as our new CEO. He has the track record we’re looking for: experience of digital businesses and a dynamic leadership style that’s been honed in fast moving trading environments, including nearly seven years at easyJet.
“We thank Mark for his leadership over the past three and a half years and wish him well. Mark and the team have set a clear strategy for the Group and helped households save over £6bn.”
Duffy added: “I’m thrilled to be joining Moneysupermarket Group, a company I have always admired. We are here to save customers money, and with people facing so much uncertainty at the moment, this has never been more important.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the team on their exciting plans to bring more savings to more people.”
Lewis will step down as CEO on 31 August 2020 and will leave the group thereafter.
