Autorola, the European online remarketing company, has appointed Simon Wells to join its UK business development team.
Wells joins from SMA where he was projects and infrastructure manager.
Before that he spent six years with Manheim including a three year spell as auction centre manager at Colchester and a stint as manager of the Manheim 124-acre Dallas Fort Worth Auto Auction in the USA.
Wells will be responsible for further building Autorola presence in the dealer remarketing sector, in particular growing the Autofind stock locator system which has over 5,000 vehicles available for the 1,500 registered dealers to buy online.
Peter Groftehauge, Autorola Group’s chief executive officer said: “The UK market is beginning to increase its appetite for buying and selling used cars online. Wells has the experience to help build the Autorola brand in the UK.”
