Why Wakefield for The Car Buying Group
As CEO and Co-Founder of The Car Buying Group, which also happens to be one of the fastest growing tech companies in the north of England, Tom Marley’s accomplishments are already more than many of us could dream; what’s more, at only 39 years of age and with a £43.7 million-pound turnover organisation to his name, this young entrepreneur certainly knows a thing or two about running a profoundly successful business empire.
Spotting a gap in the market for an organisation which offers consumers a fair, fast and hassle-free way to sell their car online, The Car Buying Group has come a long way since its inception in 2014.
Maintaining its customer centric, transparent approach to selling cars, coupled with the business’ commitment to providing a fun and rewarding environment in which to work, has seen the organisation earn its place as the number one fastest growing online car buying company in the UK.
Using a purely 100% collection model for the buying and selling of its cars, we spoke to Tom to find out why Wakefield was chosen as a key location for his business and how being based in the Wakefield District has positively impacted upon The Car Buying Group’s bottom line.
Tipping the location and close proximity of Wakefield to other major cities as a huge draw, along with access to exceptional professionals who have been educated at some of the outstanding educational institutions which reside in and around the city, Tom appreciates the value that being based in Wakefield has afforded to his business.
Tom comments: “Wakefield is such an exciting growth area with superb transport links – Sheffield is less than 30 minutes away and London less than two hours! There’s also some great work going on in the education sector which is not only nurturing talent from Wakefield, but also attracting future professionals from Leeds, York and all the way from Sheffield so it really is a central hub for the Yorkshire area.”
Noting that the benefits of the location come without the heftier price tag that can be seen in other major cities, utilising Wakefield as a key location for the business has undoubtedly played a priceless role in the astounding success that has been enjoyed by the organisation – which, unbelievably, is still only in its fourth year.
Despite being only four years young, having more than doubled its turnover in a single year from 2016 to 2017, the business has accomplished an exceptional amount. What’s more, with an ever-growing list of accolades, we’re sure that we’ll see even bigger things from the business over the years to come.
Oh and did we mention that The Car Buying Group is a member of the most vibrant group in town who are also dedicated to promoting the district as a great place to visit, invest and live? Yes, you guessed it, as a recent addition to the Wakefield Bondholders network, we’re looking forward to seeing what else this pioneering young business has up its sleeve!
