Openwork is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Duckworth as Chief Executive Officer.
Mark, who has been Managing Director of Openwork since 2011, will assume the new role with immediate effect subject to necessary approvals being granted.

Mark takes over the role of CEO from Mary-Anne McIntyre, who has left the business to pursue other opportunities.
Commenting on Mark’s appointment, Christopher Rodrigues, Chairman of the Openwork Group, says: “Having performed the role of Managing Director with distinction over the last three years, Mark was the natural choice for the role of CEO. Mark has a wealth of experience and will offer valuable continuity, stability and enthusiasm as he and the wider management team seek to build on Openwork’s success and take the business on the next step of its journey.
“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone at Openwork to thank Mary-Anne for her hard work and commitment and we wish her all the best for the future.”
Mark Duckworth says: “I am extremely proud to have been appointed CEO of Openwork. We have made huge strides in the last few years to ensure Openwork delivers a first class customer proposition through its advice network which is now secured by a robust infrastructure and the emergence of sustainable profits. We continue to look forward to creating real value for our customers, advisers, staff and external shareholders over the coming years. I would like to thank Mary-Anne for her important contribution, particularly during a turbulent time for the advice industry.”
