Automotive sector logistics specialist Engineius has appointed Andrew Wyatt as its new finance director.
Wyatt’s appointment follows the recent promotion of Calum Slowther as new managing director of the business, which provides tech-enabled vehicle movement to dealerships, service, maintenance and repair, rental, leasing, corporate fleets, remarketing and breakdown services.
Commenting on Wyatt's appointment, Slowther said: “We are very happy to be welcoming Andrew to Engineius to help drive the company’s financial planning.
“We have had a great product-market fit over the first three years after our launch. We are now entering our growth phase to scale up - this is the first of several senior appointments to make this happen.”
Previously, Wyatt has worked at Unity Resourcing and gained accountancy training at EY.
Slowther said: “At Unity Resourcing, Andrew led and established the finance function where they scaled very quickly, providing great insight, experience and learning that will aid Engineius’ growth over the next few years.
“Andrew will be responsible for all aspects of finance - from accounting and commercial finance through to corporate finance - the latter will become increasingly important as we look to accelerate our growth with inorganic options on the table.”
Wyatt said: “I am delighted to be joining a very dynamic company with huge potential. The team is young and has a very clear vision of what it wants to achieve.
“I’m excited to have the chance to help drive Engineius forward to achieve its ambitious goals.”
Last year, the vehicle movement service urged retailers to think differently about logistics to reduce their CO2 emissions amid a boom in home delivery brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and rising online car sales.
Engineius was founded in 2018 services clients across all fleet sectors including corporate fleets, SMR, rental, leasing, dealerships, remarketing and breakdown services.
