Aston Barclay Group chief executive Tom Marley has left the business “by mutual agreement” as the business has announced a raft of senior management changes and new leadership roles.
Marley was promoted to group chief executive in March last year after previously heading up Aston Barclay’s The Car Buying Group (TCBG) business.
In a statement, Aston Barclay said: “Tom passes on his best wishes to the company and those he has worked with over the last nine years and Aston Barclay wishes him the best for the future.”
Aston Barclay also said that following the past 18 months of establishing a new sales team and building the vendor base, Mark Hankey, chief revenue officer, is transitioning “to a more flexible working arrangement”.
He will continue to support the sales team which is led by current director of sales Nick Thompson.
Thompson now assumes a leadership role within the Aston Barclay senior leadership team and will work with Hankey on growing the number of new vendors joining the business.
Meanwhile, Aston Barclay has appointed Sean Russell as its new director of marketing.
Russell has been tasked with further building the Aston Barclay and The Car Buying Group (TCBG) brands within their relevant business sectors.
Justin Lane who is currently Aston Barclay’s chief operating officer, now takes on the role of chief customer officer.
Lisa Grimsley joins the company as its new group chief operating officer following extensive experience in the auction business with both BCA and Aston Barclay.
Grimsley will oversee all group operations including auctions, logistics and refurbishment, as well as operational accountability for TCBG, the group’s consumer car buying service.
Leading the new-look Aston Barclay Group is executive chairman Greg MacLeod “who provides continuity for both shareholders and employees”.
MacLeod said: “These management team changes reflect the group’s commitment to growth and delivering exceptional customer service.
“We are confident they will help us focus on pulling the key levers that drive performance for our group and customers.”
