With 15 years’ experience in the motor trade including AutoTrader and more recently CAP Automotive, Ben is a highly experienced and well respected member of the industry.
Antony Lewis, founder of CarCliq, a website which offers buyers deals on new and used cars from local approved car dealers, said: ‘Ben’s extensive knowledge of both the automotive sector and the digital media landscape is undisputed.
‘He brings with him a wealth of contacts from dealers, manufacturers and suppliers.
‘CarCliq has recently developed and launched a revamped website resulting in significant forward momentum. We are delighted to welcome Ben as part of the team and believe his appointment will be a pivotal point in the continued growth of the company.’

Discussing his new role at CarCliq, he said: ‘It’s great to join the team at the start of an exciting journey. Make no mistake, there is a lot of hard work ahead of us but the foundations in place are really strong.
