Volvo Car UK has reorganised its wholesale used car operations as part of its strategy to extend its used car business.
All remarketing will be carried out in-house by a newly created wholesale used car department headed by Volvo's remarketing and total cost of ownership manager, Graeme Oswald.
He is supported by three new appointments. Natasha Berry joins as wholesale used car executive from BCA (British Car Auctions), who previously operated remarketing for Volvo. Berry worked on the Volvo account at BCA for two years, where she developed strongrelationships with the UK dealer network.
Also joining is James Sion, who previously worked for FCA Bank as a remarketing specialist.
Jack O'Callaghan is also on the team as used car analyst. He moves from the company's finance department where he was involved in used car financial reporting.
"These changes will result in more integrated and efficient remarketing processes," Volvo said in a statement.
"Both Berry and Sion will also act as a designated point of contact with the dealer network and our existing used car development team, further improving communication across our operations."
Matt Galvin, head of retail sales, said: "Used cars and residual value management are a big focus and these changes will enable us to provide a more joined up approach to our used car operations.
This substantial investment underlines the importance Volvo places on remarketing our cars to our dealer network, and the role that plays in helping them put used cars at the heart of their business."
