Cazoo, an online auto retail platform, recently brought aboard Piers Stobbs to be the company's Chief Data Officer as the platform prepares to launch.
With a technology-based car-selling platform, the company claims it will enable car purchases online, with the vehicle being delivered in as little as three days.
Stobbs said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Cazoo and to build a data team that is focused on the customer and purchasing behaviours as well as supporting the buying and pricing teams.
“The opportunity to drive the optimal use of data throughout the business is immense and it will give Cazoo a significant edge over existing players as we scale.”
Cazoo was founded 10 months ago, and now has over 120 employees ready to launch to consumers later in October.
Stobbs spent four years in the same role a MoneySuperMarket, and brings with him over 20 years’ experience in data and analytics across multiple UK and US businesses.
He will now report to founder and CEO, Alex Chesterman, and will be in charge of analytics, business intelligence, data science and artificial intelligence, data engineering, governance and data innovation.
Chesterman said: “I am very pleased to welcome Piers to the Cazoo team.
“His experience in building customer centric data teams and using data to drive value will create fundamental advantages in our model in terms of how we apply data across all areas of the business, most notably throughout the stocking process.”
