Peter heads up our marketing, product and IT teams from our Berlin offices. Having completed a Ph.D. studying marketing techniques, he’s a bit of whiz when it comes to the strategy behind spreading the Carspring message.
Max leads our operations, finance and customer service teams from our London offices. With a background in automotive consulting, he’s always got his eye on industry trends, making sure we continue to stay way ahead of the curve.
After meeting at consultancy firm McKinsey & Co, they decided to change all that. And, finally, in May 2015, they launched Carspring. When we first started, it was just London. Within months, we’d gone nationwide. Success wasn’t instant, but we instantly knew we were onto a winner.
From the get go, people loved our new approach. They still do. They love the simplicity of our site. They love the fact they don’t have to leave their home. And, most importantly, they love the great condition of our cars. Now, month on month, we’re growing. And, while we may be getting bigger and we’re always getting better - we’ll never lose sight of why it all began - with that burning desire to bring the Great British public the dedication they deserve.
Everyone at Carspring is obsessed with cars.
As the old cliche goes, if you’re going to sell something, you’ve got to know your product. Whoever you speak to at Carspring, one thing is clear - we don’t just know about cars, we’re obsessed by them.
But, it’s about more than just cars. We believe it’s essential that we really get to know you, our customers. We’re obsessed with knowing your needs, your hopes and your fears. In creating a completely effortless, online way to buy or sell a used car, we want you to feel completely relaxed and reassured throughout the whole journey. And, for this, trust is key. We can’t reassure you if you don’t trust us. That’s why we’re always pushing to keep you informed and always determined to tell you the truth. We’re obsessed with being honest, always.
We’re young. We’re pretty smart. We’re a lot of fun.
We’re an international team based in London and Berlin. We’re made up of some of the smartest, coolest and cultured folk out there. OK, maybe not. But, when it comes to cars and treating people with the respect they deserve, we know what we’re doing.
We take cars seriously. We take work seriously. We take our ping pong table, 5-a-side football and enjoying ourselves in the office pretty seriously too. But, we’re definitely not here to take life seriously. We’re a young company, full of young people and fresh ideas. In our office, everyone from interns to founders have an equal opportunity to make a difference. And, if people take life too seriously, new ideas don’t happen, innovation doesn’t happen and things just stay the same.
