Duplo International, the market leader with the widest range of print finishing systems in the print industry, has appointed Andy Benson as its new UK managing director. He succeeds Peter Jolly who, after 14 years as Duplo MD, is joining HP as the country manager for HP Indigo UK and Ireland.
Jolly said: “I owe so much to Duplo; they have given me the greatest opportunity to develop as a business leader and as an individual. Leaving is not a decision I’ve taken lightly.”
Benson has more than 25 years’ experience in business, with technology giant Sony and his own management consultancy company.
Robin Greenhalgh, Chairman of Duplo International, said: “Andy has a wealth of experience and will bring a fresh approach and a raft of new ideas to help take Duplo UK forward and continue to grow sales. We’re indebted to Peter Jolly for his drive and enthusiasm and wish him well for the future in his new role.”
Andy is married with two teenage children and lives in Guildford, Surrey. A sports fanatic, he is a keen golfer and skier. Technology and music are among his other interests.
