Hiring signals

Direct-to-consumer car buying platform Roadster announced that it has brought onboard Rudi Thun, formerly Head of Vehicles at eBay Motors, as COO this Wednesday. Rudi has been serving as an advisor to the company since December 2013.

I haven’t met Rudi however I was very happy to hear that he’s joining Roadster and I welcome him to the team. I’m confident that Roadster’s CEO Andy Moss made the right decision.

Whenever the leader of the most trafficked vehicle marketplace on the web decides to leave his company to join a car marketplace startup less than 1.5 years old, it’s usually a good sign.
