Manheim has promoted current chief operating officer, Michael Buxton (pictured), to the role of UK chief executive.
Buxton will continue to report into John Bailey, whose responsibilities at the global automotive services company have been expanded, as he recently stepped up to a new role as executive vice president of international operations within parent company Cox Automotive.
Bailey said: “Michael’s promotion to chief executive recognises his significant contribution over 20 years in Manheim and I know that our UK operations and customers will greatly benefit under his leadership.
“I will still be actively involved with Michael in the UK domestic market and look forward to working closely with him as our businesses go from strength to strength.”
Manheim UK is part of Cox Automotive, one of the world’s largest providers of automotive services to fleets, motor dealers, vehicle manufacturers and traders across cars, motorcycles, plant and commercial vehicles, and a division of the family-owned Cox Enterprises global group of communications, media and automotive services providers.
