Cazoo head of operations James Dower is to leave the business on 31 August. He said he had been proud to lead a “hugely effective operational team that have delivered incredible efficiencies and outstanding performances across the wholesale business.

“To the site, field inspection, imaging and logistics teams I would like to say a huge thank you for what you have delivered, you have been amongst some of the best people I have worked with.”

Dower joined Cazoo in August 2020, initially as Account Director, before becoming Head of Operations in December 2021. His career also includes two years as a Dealer Principal with Pendragon and two years as senior editor of CAP Black Book.

Dower said he will spend some time with his family before deciding what to do next and “if you value industry experience and expertise, please do get in touch”.
