Tim Smith has been named as the new CEO of Automotive Transformation Group, stepping up from his current role as chief revenue officer.
He is tasked with leading the development of the group’s strategy and delivering the resources needed to satisfy the company’s evolving industry demands.
Smith has worked within the business for 17 years, primarily for GForces. Automotive Transformation Group was formed last year following the merger of Autofutura and GForces.

In that time, I have been lucky enough to play an integral role in the development of the Group’s strategic goals, helping to innovate industry-shifting products to support our customers through rapid evolution.
“I am excited to use this knowledge and experience to master this new challenge as CEO of Automotive Transformation Group as we take the next step in our mission to simplify automotive sales for Retailers, OEMs, Financiers and Fleet Suppliers across the globe.”
