COX Automotive Australia has appointed Scott Stratton as head of sales for leading online dealer services company Dealer Solutions.
As previously reported, Dealer Solutions was purchased by Cox Automotive early last year to provide it with a platform from which to expand its products and services in Australasia, in addition to Dealer Solutions’ existing suite of services.
In announcing the new appointment, Cox Automotive said Mr Stratton was “well known throughout the automotive industry as one of the early pioneers of integrating offline and online marketing within a dealership environment”.
Mr Stratton was previously retail sales manager at leading Queensland automotive group Sci-Fleet Motors, and earlier in his career served as sales director for South City Mazda in Brisbane, general sales manager and head of marketing for James Frizelle’s Automotive Group and general manager of communications and client services for the Trivett Group.
He spent almost 13 years with Trivett, and also worked for Carsales Limited for a short period before heading north to Queensland.
“Scott joins Dealer Solutions with a wealth of industry knowledge, gained in senior roles within the automotive dealership environments,” the company said.
“He understands how delivering industry-leading technology can help motor dealers stand out and succeed in a competitive environment.”
