Cazoo, the used car buying platform being set up by Zoopla founder Alex Chesterman, has made three high profile appointments, all with extensive experience in the sector.
Former Auto Trader UK
Sales Director Kevin Harding has been appointed as Pricing Director. Tesla’s
former General Manager Remarketing will become Operations Director, while Manheim’s
former Vehicle Solutions Director Bryan Stringer will join as Head of
Cazoo’s Chief Commercial Officer
Paul Whitehead says: “We’re delighted to welcome Kevin, Tony and Bryan to the
Cazoo team. They are joining at a very exciting time and their experience will
be invaluable as we rapidly build out our teams and operations ahead of our launch.”
Reports say Cazoo, which
does not have a launch date as yet, will enable customers to buy used cars
online and have them delivered to their door with a seven day returns policy.
It is probably fair to say
that the motor trade is as competitive as the estate agency business and then
some – and has some seriously big and well established players. It will be
interesting to what Alex Chesterman believes he can bring to the market.
