David Stevenson

Automotive business, Autofinity, has appointed former Reynolds and Reynolds and Codeweavers regional manager David Stevenson as its new national sales manager.

Stevenson’s role will involve working with retailers to help maximise car sales and identify new opportunities for parts and accessories, the company said.

Stevenson’s appointment will be key to Autofinity’s ambition to help vehicle retailers and operational teams to move cars faster, it said.

Autofinity is preparing to launch a new product suite, ViHub, designed to tackle common and complex vehicle data issues, by incorporating all the tools dealers need to prep their stock and get it to market quickly, from within a single hub which includes inventory management tools, third party advertising links and insight into advertising performance.

The goal is to support dealers and retailers in meeting the growing demand for online retailing, it said.

Andy Whitehair, chief executive at Autofinity, said: “David brings significant experience of supporting retailers in their digital transformation journeys with the likes of Codeweavers.

“This is an ideal time for David to join our team to support business growth.

“We’re excited to have David on board as we prepare to launch a solution that will bring a revolution in inventory management solutions for retailers and fleet managers.”

Whitehair's career has included heading 2nd Byte and Auto Trader's sister digital marketing company, Razsor, which was later merged into Auto Trader.

Stevenson said: “It’s an exciting time for the automotive sector as the pandemic has forced a progressive change in the way consumers buy and retailers sell.

"Digital operations are accelerating at pace and I’m excited to be working with a hugely experienced team, with a product that will offer flexibility and efficiency to retailers.

"This will enable them to decouple from the traditional online solutions, so they can manage stock better and transform the way they retail in-line with other industries.”
