Tom Marley, Aston Barclay Group’s new CEO

Tom Marley has been appointed the new CEO of the Aston Barclay Group, comprising Aston Barclay Remarketing and The Car Buying Group (TCBG).

Marley was the managing director of TCBG, the consumer to business digital business acquired by Aston Barclay in 2018.

Executive chairman Greg MacLeod said: “Tom is a natural choice for this overall group leadership role having done an outstanding job leading our TCBG business over the last four years since its acquisition.

“He is now ready to take on much wider responsibilities as the group embarks on its exciting next growth phase post Covid-19.”

Marley added: “I’m excited to be leading the group, which has successfully navigated its way through the last two years.

“During that time, we have invested heavily in improving the business, with new hires, learning and development for our colleagues, new products and improved processes.

“Together with the existing management team which includes Martin Potter, managing director customer, Justin Lane, chief operating officer, and James Branton, director of The Car Buying Group, we all plan to build on these successes to catapult the group to higher growth, a more integrated offering for our customers and higher profitability.”

MacLeod says that the Group has “big targets” to ramp up the volume of vehicles Aston Barclay remarkets this year.

He said: “With the strong flexibility provided by our omni-channel approach underpinned by a well-located physical infrastructure and a strong tech offering, servicing all our current and future customers’ needs is straightforward. 

“The Car Buying Group has even bigger growth targets, and is adopting new strategies in winning new work, with a recent deal to purchase vehicles from an online dealer, which utilises its trusted brand status in the used car world.”
