Following the recent investment in Evolution Funding by global investment firm Carlyle, the business has launched a new Purpose, Vision, and Mission. Designed to re-align the auto finance platform with its strategic growth plans, the new direction was revealed by Chief Executive Lee Streets at the company’s yearly Sales Conference.
The Carlyle investment, which is provided by Carlyle Europe Technology Partners (“CETP”) V, a €3 billion fund which invests in technology companies across Europe, cements Evolution’s position as a prominent technology business in the motor finance market.
The new Purpose, Vision and Mission will serve as guiding principles for the strategic direction of the company, including investment in its platform and finance capabilities, partnering opportunities across the ecosystem and marketplace, and new customer and revenue model targets.
Lee Streets, Evolution CEO, commented:
“Over the past 20 years, we have been on an incredible journey, and this year has been our biggest yet. In 2020 we launched our previous Vision and Mission, ensuring that everyone pulled in the same direction and leading to some important achievements and milestones over that time.
“Our new Purpose, Vision, and Mission will ensure our people and the market understand our aspirations and focus for the business in the coming years as we work in partnership with Carlyle to create a transformational proposition to the auto finance market.
“For existing and future partners, our direction demonstrates our continued commitment to investment and innovation in our platform. Coupled with our ambitious automation goals, we are fully focused on becoming the leading embedded finance provider and therefore the platform of choice for our partners. This is an exciting time for the market, and we look forward to being at the centre of it!”
