Used auto finance platform Evolution Funding has appointed Duncan Josey to the newly created role of chief strategy officer.

Josey brings over 21 years of experience across key business roles at Autotrader, including commercial director, digital marketing director, and key accounts sales director.

As part of the executive leadership team, Josey will lead the development and execution of strategic plans to achieve Evolution Funding Group’s goals of digitising, automating, and enhancing the consumer auto finance experience. A key focus will be advancing and leveraging the group’s ecosystem and digital platform.

Lee Streets, chief executive officer at Evolution Funding, said:

“From Autotrader’s early days as an analogue business to the digital giant we know today, Duncan has been at the centre of Autotrader’s radical transformation. As such, with his wealth of experience, he is well placed to accelerate Evolution’s similar journey to develop our ecosystem proposition and commercialise our data offering. We are delighted to welcome Duncan to Evolution as we drive forward to becoming the auto finance platform of choice.”

Josey said:

“This is an exciting move for me, and I look forward to working with the Evolution team. The automotive industry finds it hard to take advantage of modern advances in technology due to a fragmented and complex ecosystem. Evolution’s innovative approach to using technology to overcome that fragmentation and connect consumers and partners via their platform puts them in a unique position to transform the industry. I am delighted to be joining Evolution on that journey of transformation.”
