Tim Smith to head motor finance team at Black Horse

Senior leadership team changes will put Tim Smith in charge of Black Horse’s whole motor finance team from the end of April.

Smith previously held the position of head of motor, north, while Paul McGill held the same role for the south.

McGill’s decision to retire later this year has prompted the creation of a new combined motor finance team for the whole of the UK under Smith’s leadership.

Nagla Thabet will take over McGill’s responsibilities for motorbikes, in addition to her existing role as head of franchise and leisure.

Richard Jones, Black Horse managing director, said: “Black Horse completed its most successful year on record in 2015, and we are continuing to grow.

“Our core purpose remains helping dealerships stay central to the car buying journey through our relationship based approach, and I’m confident that these leadership changes will enable us to continue this, and to deliver further excellent results in future.

“Tim Smith has been integral to the success of Black Horse in recent years and this role reflects his professionalism and dedication. I’m delighted he will now lead our motor operation across the whole of the UK.

“We have been very fortunate to have Paul McGill with Black Horse for 25 years, in which time he’s made a fantastic contribution to our business.

“Paul will continue to work on a number of key projects until his retirement as we look to develop in areas such as our technology and our product offering.”
