Remarketing firm Adesa UK has appointed Eddie Thomson as its new head of business development.
It says Thomson will be tasked with leading the next steps of the company's growth, by strengthening key partnerships and recruiting more leasing companies, fleets, OEMs and dealers to its digital-only Upstream remarketing platform.
Thomson joins Adesa UK from BCA, where he was sales and operations director for Scotland.
Prior to that he was national operations director for SMA Vehicle Remarketing.
Thomson said: "I've seen Adesa UK grow over recent years and take the lead in digital remarketing in terms of technology and customer service, so I relish this opportunity to work at the cutting-edge of digital remarketing at a time when transacting online has become the new default route for vendors and buyers."
Adesa UK managing director Jonathan Holland said: "Eddie is a highly experienced remarketing professional who will help accelerate Adesa UK's digital remarketing strategy and create a more engaging marketplace for buyers and sellers.
"For Adesa UK, strengthening our remarketing partnerships means more opportunity and more inventory for dealers to source fresh stock for their forecourts."
