Engineius has appointed its former commercial director Calum Slowther, as its new managing director.
Slowther will assume responsibility for the day-to-day running of the business, which provides tech-enabled vehicle movement to clients across automotive sectors including dealerships, service, maintenance and repair, rental, leasing, corporate fleets, remarketing and breakdown services.
Engineius said Slowther joined the business as its first employee in 2017, where he worked closely with the founders and potential clients to understand the market opportunity, leading into the design of the proposition and technology platform shortly after.
Since the company launched in 2018, Slowther’s focus has been on growth of Engineius’ customer base and order volumes.
Chris Clibbery, director and founder of Engineius, said the structural change was ‘necessary’ to ensure continued growth for the business.
He said: “Calum has played a pivotal role throughout our transition and growth, from our pre-launch period in 2017 to where the business is now.
“He has built up a wealth of business and industry knowledge to now direct Engineius’ operations and people. On behalf of the Engineius board, I am confident that this combined with Calum’s drive to succeed will push the business forward at pace.”
Slowther said: “Our mission for the next phase of our growth is clear - we will demonstrate that we can give customers the same control and confidence as they would get if they operated vehicle logistics in house, but with the flexibility of sharing a now very large network with many other clients and the enhanced user experience our technology stack provides them with.
“We have work to do to achieve this, but I am determined we will make this happen. The key to doing so will be people.
“We will create a company where employees learn a lot, love coming to work and get rewarded for delivering excellence.”
The appointment will be effective from October 4.
