Tom Marley says:

“We’re thrilled to have been named alongside some of the country’s leading tech companies. The tech sector in the North is rapidly evolving and The Car Buying Group is incredibly proud to be a part of that. Although we operate on a national basis, it was a strategic decision to base ourselves in the North as the region has developed an outstanding reputation for itself as a home for profitable tech companies and fantastic talent. It’s great to have been recognised for all our hard work over the last three years and we’re very excited for the future of The Car Buying Group and the technology sector in the North.”
