Gumtree Cars continues to build its dealership experience with the appointment of Dario Esposito to the role of senior key account manager.
Esposito joins Gumtree with over 10-years’ experience in the automotive industry, having most recently served as national operations manager for Vmoto, the UK and Ireland’s leading distributor of electric motorbikes.
He will be joining the growing Gumtree Cars key accounts team as an expansion of Gumtree Cars’ services.
Esposito will be responsible for continuing to grow the presence of Gumtree’s dedicated cars vertical in the highly competitive autos market, and partnering closely with national and local dealerships to ensure Gumtree Cars offers a simple, good value and highly transparent route to customers.
He said: “I am looking forward to contributing to the development and growth of Gumtree Cars, and ultimately achieving our goal of becoming the Australian market leader.
“I was inspired by the cultural roots of the brand. Gumtree has a place in the hearts of so many Australians and the launch of Gumtree Cars in 2017 was a significant step in taking poll position in the cars category”.
Jessica de Vries, national sales manager of Gumtree Cars, said the appointment of Esposito was critical to the continued momentum of Gumtree Cars.
She said: “We’re excited to welcome Dario to our team, who brings a wealth of dealership-focused experience to our growing team.
“His hire is another step towards our goal of becoming the number 1 autos marketplace in Australia.
“We’ll achieve this by continuing our focus on driving quality leads from over 260,000 daily automotive visitors daily.
“There has never been a more important time to support our dealers and we have invested in having the very best people for this Key Accounts team”.
Gumtree Cars launched two years ago and has since maintained development of the platform for both consumers and dealers through partnership building.
Esposito is committed to improving the experience of its premium dealer partners.
He said: “I’m confident that my front line experience in dealerships will serve me well in the understanding and delivery of what matters most to our customers”.
Ongoing updates around Gumtree Cars include integrated car records reports, call tracking, broader radius for top ads and unlimited photos for dealers on the premium package.
