THE online platform helping dealers source stock directly from private sellers Tootle has appointed Gordon Tulloch as its new CEO.
Tulloch has already started in the role following the decision by former CEO and co-founder Al Taylor to concentrate on new early-stage start-ups.
The new CEO has a wealth of entrepreneurial and automotive industry experience having held positions such as chief commercial officer at Carland, and chief relations officer at Direct Car Finance and at JTK Automotive.
He has also worked at the likes of Jaguar Cars, Porsche GB, BCA and Manheim as digital director.
Tulloch will help lead Tootle’s next funding round, following its £1.75m seed round last year.
He said: ‘Tootle has a number of exciting strategic partnerships and technological developments in the pipeline which will help rapidly grow stock on the site and improve dealer interactions with the platform. Our expansion will continue with further appointments to develop our proposition and grow the business.’
Dominic Perks, CEO of investment firm Hambro Perks, said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Gordon as tootle’s new CEO. His experience and credentials within the industry are exactly what the company needs to push on to the next steps in our expansion strategy.’
