Duncan Angus, Global CEO and Founder

Following the resignation of Nic Fairbank (Group CEO and Managing Director) for family reasons the Board appointed Duncan Angus as Global CEO and Founder.

Duncan Angus co-founded AKG (Angus Knight Group) in 1991 and has been heavily involved in the strategic and operational elements of the business ever since.

“We are sad to farewell Nic,” said Duncan. “He has made a significant contribution over the past two years. Under his leadership, AKG has been resolutely focused on advancing our purpose to empower people and communities and leaves us well positioned to thrive, despite increasingly challenging sector conditions.”

The AKG Board took this opportunity to rework the Executive Leadership structure and appointed a Global Leadership Team to work closely with the AKG Country Leaders.

The Global Leadership Team, reporting to the Global CEO, comprises three of AKG’s current executives:

  • Oliver Goodarzi, Chief Operating Officer, responsible for growth strategy, driving performance in each location by supporting the Country Leaders, and continuing to lead on Mergers and Acquisitions.
  • Elyse Jeffress, Community and Stakeholder Engagement Executive, responsible for AKG Ways of Working, Brand, Stakeholder and Community Engagement, and Legal.
  • Julie McCleary, Global CFO and Risk Executive, responsible for group finance, regulatory compliance, and risk management.
