Richard Hollis has joined Holden Group as head of group used cars and will report to MD Martyn Webb.

He joined Holden Group from Cinch where he was head of pricing. Previously, he was head of used car development for Jardine Motors and group used car manager with Mercedes-Benz Retail Group.

Hollis said: “I’ll be making sure we’re using all the latest industry developments, such as improvements to photography and video, and embracing artificial intelligence. All these things are starting to come into play.

“A group of our size that wants to grow, needs to have all these elements in place today so that they can be rolled out and standardised throughout the business as it expands.

“I’ll be providing an additional level of support to the team so that the sites don’t have to worry about trade disposals or who’s supplying their photography. I’ll be taking advantage of scale and tightening up our systems landscape to make life easier for our team.

Hollis has specialised in the used car market for the past 14 years but has over 23 years of experience in the UK retail motor industry.

Hollis added: “With my finance background, I’m quite data driven so one of the things we’re already working on is developing our reporting systems to inform decision-making. We can use that data to see what we’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong and to hold ourselves to account so that we’re achieving our best performance.

“From a customer point of view, they will see better presented stock, which will hopefully make it easier for them to choose the right car for them.”
