Duplo International has announced that CEO Bruno Picquet is to leave the company in April after five and a half years service during which time the companys turnover has increased by 20%.
Bruno is heading for pastures new in his home country of Belgium and hoping for a better work-life balance than that afforded by his current weekly commute to and from the UK. Bruno estimates that last year, he spent 223 days away from his family.
Duplo International Chairman Robin Greenhalgh said: Bruno has been a wonderful asset to our business. He has helped focus and shape us, and we are in an extremely healthy position to grow the business even further in the coming years. We thank him for his drive, focus, passion for Duplo and, of course – allez, his Belgish! We wish him every success in the future.
