Cazoo recently announced they have hired a new Chief Technology Officer, Jonathan Howell.
Howell joins Cazoo from MADE.com where he has spent the last five years as chief technology officer and grew the technology and product management teams from 15 to 100, supporting revenue growth of more than 6 times as well as expansion of the business to become a market leader in Europe, now selling in 11 countries.
At Cazoo Howell will be responsible for the technology vision and execution, scaling and growing a high-performance development team and overseeing the development of the Cazoo website and customer-facing technologies.
He joins Cazoo’s executive team and will report directly to Founder & CEO, Alex Chesterman OBE.
Howell said: “I am very excited to join Cazoo. It’s rare to get a chance to build something from the ground up and not inherit legacy tech.
“We will ensure that our website, AI and automation are world-class which will ultimately help deliver the best possible consumer experience in the used car market.”
Chesterman added: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to the Cazoo team. His retail experience and customer-centric approach to technology will help us deliver a simple and seamless digital used car buying experience for UK consumers when we launch later this year.”
Cazoo recently signed a number of commercial partnership agreements with BCA.
