New appointment for Glass’s
Steve Jackson has been appointed to the key role of chief car editor at Glass’s, Europe’s largest vehicle data provider.
He will be responsible for all car valuations and forecasts for the new and used markets – including the industry-standard Glass’s Guide to Car Values.
Steve has spent his entire career working in the automotive sector in fleet, retail, vehicle financial services and vehicle remarketing at both UK and international level.
He was previously general manager of direct channel remarketing for Leaseplan UK, managing its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) vehicle repatriation programme including auction and online relationships as well as looking after their driver sales and B2C initiatives.
Prior to this, Steve spent six years in the Middle East, the first two setting up a fleet and remarketing programme across the Gulf Cooperation Council area and the final four with Manheim International establishing a new remarketing business.
At Glass’s, he will work closely with the company’s customer service and sales teams as well as managing manufacturer, OEM, dealer group and auction relationships from a data and market perspective.
Steve said, ‘Over the years, some of the most knowledgeable people in the motor industry have headed up Glass’s car valuation and forecasting operations and I am taking on this new role with a very real sense of both excitement and responsibility.
‘Having an in-depth knowledge of the expertise available here, I believe that our car data is the very best that can be found anywhere. Our drive over the coming months and years will be to take that message to all parts of the automotive market while making our information even better.’
