Vantage Motor Group founder and former CEO (and ex-chairman of the UK National Toyota Council) Mark Robinson has taken a stake in award-winning tech business AutoComms Solutions.

The firm is known for its AutoBuzz automated communications platform, which helps manage customers between placing a new or used car order, and taking delivery.

Robinson, who exited Vantage in January 2020 and takes on an advisory role in AutoComms, joins two other recent shareholders and board members, former Lookers directors Andy Bruce and Nigel McMinn.

Bruce and McMinn also joined fleet management and online leading firm Fleet Alliance in August 2021 as CEO and COO respectively.

AutoBuzz is used by retailers such as Steven Eagell, JCB Group and Waylands. The firms says that each pilot it’s run has turned into roll outs – often group-wide, and incorporating used cars as well as new.
