By 2 Min Read

The founder of car supermarket group Big Motoring World Peter Waddell has been terminated as a director of the group.

The move was flagged up earlier this week in documents filed at Companies House.  Big Motoring World declined to comment on Waddell’s exit.

Two years ago private equity group Freshstream took a stake in Big Motoring World to accelerate its expansion.

At the time Waddell welcomed the move. “We are delighted to be partnering with Freshstream and look forward to working with them as we continue to scale and grow Big Motoring World. Their investment and expertise will allow us to further accelerate our ambitious growth strategy.

“With the support of our senior leadership team, we have to date achieved impressive growth. The news today will allow us to progress further and faster still.”

Reza Fardad, Partner at Freshstream, said at the time: “We are thrilled to be supporting the Big Motoring World team on the next chapter of their development. They have built a well-regarded platform and are well-positioned to capitalise on the sector trends in the coming years.”

In October last year Big Motoring World acquired the trade and assets of Midlands and Yorkshire used-car retailer, Available Car. The acquisition followed Big Motoring World’s expansion into Wimbledon.

Big Motoring World told Motor Trader: “The business is for now unable to comment.”
