Duncan Hermer - Managing Director

Duncan started working for himself shortly after leaving university and has never looked back.

After 10 years of building and establishing a successful health club and golf course business in the South West and Channel Islands, Duncan embarked on a fresh challenge and joined his brother Jez at OVIK, when it was just the two of them, an office and a vision.

Duncan’s business experience and commercial knowledge, honed through growing his first business from nothing to 6 significant health and golf clubs, more than 60 employees and over 8,000 members in less than 6 years, has proved fundamental to OVIK as it has grown from a small consultancy based business into a product design and manufacturing house with real global reach.  Under Duncan's leadership in business development, products such as CAMELEON MMS, PANGOLIN and other specialist vehicle projects have taken OVIK into a raft of new territories and into sectors beyond defence, including the emergency services, humanitarian and commercial arenas. Duncan runs the OVIK business operation and business development, constantly seeking new opportunities and building relationships with partners around the world as OVIK firmly establishes its business in India, Africa and Central/South America with an OVIK MENA office a priority in 2014.
