Darren Bentley joins Cazoo as Chief Customer Officer

Online car retail start-up Cazoo has continued its recruitment drive with the appointment of Darren Bentley as its Chief Customer Officer.

Bentley brings with him a proven track record and over 15 years’ experience in key customer and marketing roles. He joins from MoneySuperMarket Group, where he fulfilled various senior marketing roles and most recently was chief customer officer, responsible for brand, digital marketing, CRM, insight, PR and customer service.

In his new role as Chief Customer Officer, he will report directly to founder and CEO Alex Chesterman and will be responsible for digital and brand marketing, customer experience, insight, customer service and public relations .

Bentley said: “I am really excited to be joining Cazoo at this early stage in its journey. The opportunity is huge and I look forward to helping to transform the way people buy used cars in the UK.

Our customers will be at the heart of everything we do and the Cazoo proposition will deliver market-leading selection, value, convenience and customer support.”

Chesterman said: “I am delighted to welcome Darren to Cazoo. He brings highly relevant experience and insights to the team that will be invaluable as we build and grow the business.
“Our focus is entirely on giving consumers a far better used car buying experience than is available today and Darren will help us deliver on that promise.”

The brainchild of Zoopla founder Alex Chesterman OBE, Cazoo’s technology-based car-selling platform is set to be launched late 2019.
