Anthony Machin and Jonathan Dolden have joined Glass’s as the data specialist looks to boost its innovation and insight.
Machin takes a new role as head of content, replacing the head of valuations role. He will be tasked with ensuring data coverage and accuracy are of the highest order.
“Glass’s have offered me the opportunity to make a real difference, not just to our business, but our customers’ businesses. We are uniquely positioned - with access to swathes of data from the UK and Europe and decades of experience in our editorial team - to deliver accurate data and valuations, and truly unparalleled insights to our market,” he said.
Machin has more than 20 years of experience in the sector, having worked with BCA, Volkswagen, Honda and Jaguar Land Rover.
Dolden is set to bring fresh approach to product development in his new role as head of product.
He has previously worked for FT, Orange, Quadriga and Thomson Reuters and is expected to give Glass’s a strategic direction for the delivery, use and integration of its data.
“In my short time with the company I have already noticed that there is a real appetite for change in the industry. Companies want to be more data agnostic so they have more choice about who they work with. Glass’s is uniquely positioned to capitalise on this,” said Dolden.
Glass’s is set to overhaul its GlassNet platform this year to give customers access to valuations, crash repair, specification and forecasts.
