Auto Trader’s former head of product development, Tom White, spent over six years at Auto Trader, during which time the company partnered with The Lead Agency (then The Auto Network) to champion its move into the new vehicle market. Now White has joined The Lead Agency in the role of managing director of its automotive division.
“Tom represents a significant appointment and a perfect fit for The Lead Agency,” said managing director Anton Hanley.
“He has a phenomenal record for creating business and product strategies that lead to lasting change and considerable commercial success. His ability to lead teams towards genuine innovation will be instrumental in how we develop and grow our automotive service.”
White said: “Anton and I developed a strong working relationship during my time at Auto Trader that was founded on mutual trust and shared values that are reflected in The Lead Agency to this day.
“The company’s commitment to fairness and quality coupled with its ability to innovate and drive change has established it as the UK’s leading supplier of customer acquisition opportunities within automotive. I’m excited by the prospect of building on that success in the same tradition.”
In 2013 White joined Time Out, where he was at the helm of “globalising” the publication’s digital platforms.
