“His appointment will support our continued ambitious growth strategy, providing strategic contribution, determination and professionalism. Laurence’s extensive experience in the automotive sector will be invaluable as we continue to benefit from the sector trends in the coming years."

In a statement welcoming Mr Vaughan's appointment, Freshstream said: "Laurence brings a wealth of expertise in the automotive retailing sector, spanning four decades and encompassing new and used vehicle retail, remarketing and auctions.

"Laurence’s appointment comes after Freshstream’s investment in Big Motoring World, which has enabled the business to accelerate its ambitious growth strategy, so we’re thrilled to see this appointment based on Laurence’s strong track record of success."
