Peter Duffy

Chester-based price comparison website Moneysupermarket Group announced on Friday the appointment of Peter Duffy as chief executive officer effective from September 1, 2020, subject to normal regulatory approvals.

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.

Duffy started his career in banking, holding positions with Barclays, Yorkshire Bank and TSB.

He is a non-executive director of Close Brothers Group plc.

Moneysupermarket chair Robin Freestone 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 said: “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 August 31, 2020, and will leave the group.
