“Tootle has a number of exciting strategic partnerships and technological developments in the pipeline which will help rapidly grow stock on the site and improve dealer interactions with the platform,” he said. “Our expansion will continue with further appointments to develop our proposition and grow the business.”

Dominic Perks, CEO of investment firm Hambro Perks, said: “His experience and credentials within the industry are exactly what the company needs to push on to the next steps in our expansion strategy.”

Al Taylor and Mike Bishop launched Tootle in September 2015. The site claims to be a smart and easy way for sellers to find a buyer for their used autos by having a network of dealers who make offers directly to sellers via the platform.
