One of Alistair’s earliest automotive memories was his Grandad’s dealership shutting at lunchtime for an hour. Alistair served his apprenticeship and finally sold Dane County’s Vauxhall dealerships to Arnold Clark in 2004.
He spent a further 4 years as Commercial and then Sales Director at Accident Exchange.
He’s a massive digital enthusiast. He’s also a season ticket holder at Manchester United.
Brendan joins us from his most recent role as Executive Vice President, EMEA for Mirakl, a global SaaS leader in online marketplace platforms, allowing brands to host transactions between buyers and sellers.
Brian has over 20 years of international finance and senior leadership experience and joins the business from Wood Mackenzie, a data analytics and consultancy business serving the natural resources industry, where he has most recently been fulfilling the role of Senior Vice President of Finance.
Carol has over 19-years’ experience in the automotive industry, including retail-side, most recently consulting for one of the largest dealer groups in the UK.
Previously holding positions within Arnold Clark - the ultimate being Group Marketing & Product Development Manager, Carol was instrumental in the roll out of video within the Arnold Clark network.
Important to Carol is making a difference to the business and people - building and being part of an amazing team. Testing things first, using data to drive decisions vs. jumping in – yet ensuring actions are timely.
In her spare time Carol enjoys the views of the Scottish countryside when hill-walking and relaxing over a glass of gin.
Colin’s claim to fame is being one of the founders of The Internet Movie Database which was acquired by Amazon.
His passion for cars has now lead to a love of electric vehicles, and he also spends a fair bit of his spare time on his road bike on the country lanes around Stirling.
Prior to CitNOW, Colin was responsible for a software development team building hotel entertainment systems.
Geoffrey has worked with some of the most prestigious vehicle brands including Jaguar Land Rover, Audi, BMW, Lexus and Volkswagen.
He joined the CitNOW board in 2016.
Born in Kenya, Geoffrey is passionate about conservation and is involved with wildlife charity Tusk. He’s also a big rugby and cricket fan and for relaxation enjoys a spot of cooking.
Gordon has 40 plus years of automotive sector experience including board level positions with Carter & Carter, where he managed multiple OEM relationships and programmes, and Accident Exchange, where he was Sales Director.
He joined CitNOW in 2013 with the initial objective of introducing the benefits associated with CitNOW products and services to automotive OEMs and Dealer Groups before transitioning to the role of Executive Director for Global Programmes.
He’d like to list golf as one of his hobbies, but he’s rarely around to enjoy membership of his local club, spending as much of his leisure time in his motorhome as he does at home.
Having worked in HR for over twelve years, qualified at Advanced level 7 CIPD, Laura's key areas of experience are in leading large scale change programmes and people initiatives that are aimed at adding value and bringing people to the forefront of the business.
One of Laura's strong beliefs is that our people are our greatest asset - something that forms the basis of our pillar statement. Aligning our people, priorities and objectives to the wider business vision and strategy is a clear goal, driven by Laura's passion to make a difference for our people and our business.
For Laura, having a young family herself and spending spare time keeping busy and enjoying family life, is something that helps keep the human aspect in balance to help create a culture that's inclusive of working families.
