Duncan Movassaghi Appointed Skoda UK Head of Operations

The British arm of Czech manufacturer Skoda announced today it has appointed Duncan Movassaghi to the position of head of Operations. The executive is moving to Skoda after working as the head of Transformation at Lloyds Pharmacy.

Movassaghi will be the leader of a group of 30 people, working from both the Skoda headquarters and the field. He brings with him an executive experience which was forged on the payrolls of companies not necessarily related to the automotive industry.

The new Skoda head of operations was employed as Products and Marketing Director by Intelligent Finance, regional sales manager roles by HBoS, and eve was a business analyst for management consultants McKinsey & Company.

“I have been extremely impressed with the way that Škoda has transformed its brand and continued to increase market share. The company is a compelling proposition for me in that it has an extremely strong market position yet there is still room for growth,” the new Skoda executive said when the carmaker announced his appointment.

“In Duncan we have a dynamic new member of our senior management team who brings with him vital skills to help meet our ambitious growth targets, while ensuring the brand retains the key attributes it is famed for - engineering excellence, fantastic value for money and exemplary customer service. We wish him every success in the new role,” added Robert Hazelwood, Brand Director for the British Skoda unit.

The UK is one of Skoda's most active markets, having been named the UK’s Most Improved Fleet Manufacturer in March this year.
