Chief executive officer Tim Smith said: “Since the acquisition in 2021, Chris has continued to drive innovation in our product suite. Real-time inventory management is critical to delivering seamless omnichannel retailing for automotive, regardless of whether you’re working within a traditional franchise network or an agency model. And you simply don’t get much more of an expert on this subject than Chris Stott. His experience is also accelerating our work with key strategic alliances and he’s directly helping guide our customers on the journey to omnichannel.”

Stott said: “I am thrilled to be appointed director of alliances at Automotive Transformation Group, a company that is at the forefront of automotive omnichannel retailing. For me, it was crucial that vehicle management was a central and fully integrated part of Automotive Transformation Group’s product strategy. Now, my next challenge is to take our integrated product set to a wider market and maintain our relationships with the industry’s key innovators.”
