Camelot tempts HR Owen boss

Former Channel 4 supremo Andy Duncan has quit luxury car-seller HR Owen after less than a year to take up the role of UK managing director of lottery operator Camelot.

HR Owen has been hit by the economic downturn, with the market for super cars made by the likes of Ferrari, Bentley and Bugatti diminishing. He will be replaced by former HPI managing director Joe Doyle.

The car seller maintains that it is in line to meet analyst forecasts for the year despite the choppy trading environment.
