• Duplo International CEO Bruno Picquet to leave the company

        • Duplo International have announced that CEO, Bruno Picquet, will be leaving the company in April and returning to his home country of Belgium.

          Bruno, who reports directly to chairman Robin Greenhalgh, oversees the operational running of the business and has seen company turnover grow by 20 percent. He leaves a legacy of a four-year business plan, which started in 2015, and has so far completed a successful first year.

          Duplo International Chairman Robin Greenhalgh, who will oversee the CEO role in the short-term, said, “Bruno has been a wonderful asset to our business for five-and-a-half years. 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.”

          The decision revolves around a new work-life balance, one that has previously involved a regular weekly return commute from Belgium, plus other travelling. Last year Bruno estimated he spent 223 days away from his home and family.

          Bruno added, “It is truly one of the hardest business decisions I have had to make. This company is unique. Engaged people, passionate and driven, all of whom have been a true pleasure to work with. I leave the Duplo International in a healthier place than when I joined, of which I am very proud, and the company is heading “up” toward its milestone goal set out in our business plan.”
