Soumobroto Ganguly has taken over as CEO at Nigeria-based leading auto company Cars45 following the quiet exit of Etop Ikpe earlier this month.

Ganguly (LinkedIn profile) joined the company last year as Chief Business Officer. The entrepreneurial executive has twenty-plus years of international experience in business development and marketing, financing and fundraising. He previously worked at KPMG India.

He will be responsible for maintaining Cars45‘s market dominance. The company recently expanded to Ghana and Kenya.

Co-founded in 2016 by former Ikpe, Cars45 has grown to become one of the well-known brands for selling, buying and swapping used vehicles in Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana.

In 2017, the company closed a $5 million Series A round led by Frontier Car Group.
