Jurek Piasecki to lead watch distributor as Duckworth plots exit.
Neil Duckworth has announced his intentions to step down from his position as managing director at watch and jewellery distributor Nuval.
Duckworth is said to be leaving the company to “pursue his own interests” and will exit “in the immediate future”. Duckworth added that his exit is "amicable" and that he "shan’t be looking outside the watch and jewellery industry" for his next career move.
The future direction of the company – which represents Hermes, Carl F Bucherer, Philip Stein, Technomarine and Metal CH in the UK – will be lead by Jurek Piasecki and it will continue to operate under the existing management team of Richard Darling and Charlotte Cherrie.
Before joining Nuval Duckworth was managing director of LVMH Watch and Jewellery UK for two years following the acquisition of Duval by TAG Heuer and subsequently by LVMH. Duckworth also owns Richmond jeweller Neal Gray, which his family have run for three generations.
