Angela Barrow is stepping down from the position of managing director of EMaC after 12 years in the post.
Her successor is Neil Hodson. He will start on June 1.
Barrow (pictured) said: “I want to say thank you to the many people who have supported EMaC during my time. It has been a fantastic 12 years seeing the company change and grow in the challenging UK motor trade sector.
“Neil will now be given the space to come in and stamp his own mark on the business.
“His wealth of knowledge and his contacts within the automotive sector along with his personal ambition and drive made this a perfect choice to take our business forward.”
Before joining EMaC, Hodson was the managing director of HPI.
To facilitate the transition, Barrow will remain as an advisor to EMaC and Innovation Group, EMaC's owner.
