David Wallace has this week joined motor industry e-commerce specialist epyx in the newly-created key role of sales and business development director.
He has a track record in the motor industry over more than two decades, spending the last 12 years as executive director of business services at the Automobile Association.
Other previous roles include managing director of Acoat Bodyshop Services, sales director at Evans Halshaw Financial Services and sales director at Fleet Cost Management.
At epyx, David will be responsible for maintaining, developing and creating business relationships with motor manufacturers, large fleets, major dealer groups and other key partners.
He said: “Over the last decade, epyx has developed the 1link range of e-commerce platforms to become the acknowledged standard for the fleet and motor industries. The challenge now is to sustain and build on that position, enhancing our existing offerings and closely examining the potential for new markets and new products.
“It’s very exciting to be joining the company at this point in time and playing my part in that process. The team here is the most talented in its field and I am already enjoying working alongside them.”
