He has been at the company for two years as business development manager, playing an integral role in the launch of Eparts to the aftermarket along with the appointment of more than 25 suppliers to its electronic trading exchange.
As managing director, Rudge will be responsible for the development and direction of the Eparts service, in addition to the company’s commercial and financial performance.
“I look forward to helping unite the automotive aftermarket through providing easily implemented connectivity for suppliers and distributors,” says Rudge, who has a background in IT.
“The Eparts service is based on simplifying trading relationships, managing the complexity of IT and allowing companies to focus on more important aspects of their business, and getting the right product to the customer on time.
“In the next few months we will be working with more companies across the supply chain to help users of the service achieve this goal.”
