Zoopla's former Commercial Director, Athena Hubble, has been hired as Carwow's first UK Managing Director
The online car retail platform targeted the UK’s most successful tech scale-ups as it looked to add the new position at the head of the business along with a chief people officer and head of media partnerships.
Vaso Parisinou, the 29th employee of food deliver start-up Deliveroo, will fill the former role while Charlotte Tice takes up the latter from her previous post as head of marketing and client service at Hearst.
James Hind, Founder of carwow, said: “We have always focused on attracting the very best talent in the UK to accelerate our growth trajectory. These new hires will bring the unique experience of driving businesses that are expanding rapidly and transforming industries to carwow.”
Hubble, Zoopla’s former commercial director, will have direct responsibility for carwow’s network of partners in the UK, having previously worked with Zoopla for 12 years as the business scaled-up to become one of the UK’s first billion-dollar tech start-ups.
Hubble said that carwow now found itself in a similar position to Zoopla in its earlier years, with a “clear mission, led by a visionary entrepreneur, building a product that is modernising an industry”.
She said: “I am hugely excited to join the company and continue building the fantastic online car buying experience that modern customers expect whilst delivering highly informed buyers direct to our dealerships, removing pain points on both sides and helping future proof the industry.
