U.K.-based used car marketplace Carwow has made two appointments to its senior management team.

Gaurav Jain becomes commercial director, tasked with establishing Carwow’s Get Your Car business as the U.K.’s leading digital marketing partner. Jain joins Carwow from Meta (formerly Facebook), where he was head of global strategy and programs.

He previously worked for Uber Eats as a general manager, helping to scale the business across the U.K. and running commercial functions. In his new role, Jain will lead Carwow’s commercial functions and support its strategic plans.

Also joining Carwow is Dean Aston, who takes up the newly created role of director of people and talent to improve Carwow’s global employee experience. Aston joins from medical healthcare business eMed, where he was regional VP and then VP of people and strategy, leading teams across the U.K. and India. He has also held senior positions at TrainLine and Google.

“We’re always investing in talent across the business to help us deliver our ambitious growth plans,” said Carwow chief business and operations officer Alice Flaye.

“Both Gaurav and Dean bring fantastic experience and expertise in their specialist areas, gained from working at leading global tech companies.”

Last week, Carwow announced it had acquired automotive content business Autovia, which publishes magazines Auto Express and Evo, as well as websites CarBuyer and Driving Electric.
