DREW Hodgson has been appointed to the new role of finance director for BCA Partner Finance that helps independent car and van dealers with expansion plans.
Drew Hodgson joined BCA Marketplace in May 2015 as financial performance controller and played a key role in the acquisitions of SMA, Automotive Logistics and Ambrosetti.
He previously held finance roles with Cobham Aviation Services, Autologic Holdings PLC and Bombardier Services.
In this new role, Drew will support Malcolm Thompson, managing director of BCA Partner Finance, with responsibility for financial performance reporting and monitoring.
The innovative BCA Partner Finance Service helps independent car and van dealers secure incremental funding to allow them to expand their retail operations.
BCA Partner Finance was the first finance product to launch that is specifically designed for the UK remarketing sector and helps independent dealers buy from the UK’s largest pool of used vehicles – any vehicle, any age, any mileage and any condition with 100% of the purchase funded plus any fees.
Tim Lampert, BCA Marketplace CFO, commented: “Drew brings with him a wealth of experience gained in both automotive and Plc environments which will prove invaluable in helping us achieve our growth aspirations for this rapidly expanding division of BCA.”
