ASTON Barclay has appointed Richard Cross as its new group sales director to drive physical and digital sales growth.

He brings with him more than 20 years’ automotive industry experience with retail dealerships, suppliers and remarketing companies, having held various senior roles, including head of manufacturer, head of corporate, and director of dealer sales.

Cross, pictured right, who will have a team of three sales managers reporting to him, said he was looking forward to optimising Aston Barclay’s range of digital products underpinned by the physical auction infrastructure.

‘I have been watching Aston Barclay’s reinvention of the remarketing sector with great interest and am very excited to now be part of this revolution.

‘My job is to work with our existing customers and support a range of new vendor clients about the group’s ability to provide an independent, personal and flexible service.’

Neil Hodson, left, Aston Barclay’s group chief executive, added: ‘Having a dedicated sales lead is a key part of our growth strategy and we are confident that Richard’s experience and leadership skills will help take our sales volumes to the next level.’
