BCA has appointed Drew Hodgson into the new role of finance director for BCA Partner Finance, which provides funding to independent car and van dealers for them to expand their retail operations.

Hodgson joined BCA Marketplace in May 2015 as financial performance controller and played a key role in the acquisitions of SMA, Automotive Logistics and Ambrosetti. He previously held finance roles with Cobham Aviation Services, Autologic Holdings and Bombardier Services.

In this new role, Drew will support Malcolm Thompson, managing director of BCA Partner Finance, with responsibility for financial performance reporting and monitoring.

Tim Lampert, BCA Marketplace chief financial officer said: "Drew brings with him a wealth of experience gained in both automotive and Plc environments which will prove invaluable in helping us achieve our growth aspirations for this rapidly expanding division of BCA."
