Ryan Bryers has recently been appointed as Chief Technology Officer at CarFinance 247 as it looks to become a digital-first business.
Bryers, a digital transformation expert and ranked by Computer Magazine as one of the UK’s top 100 CIOs, joins the Manchester-based company from e-payments firm Worldline.
The role at CarFinance 247 will see him take the company’s 2025 vision and create the tech to underpin it, evolving it into a digital-first business.
He will look to evolve the company’s digital status from part DevOps to full DevOps by developing a high-performing team and introducing AI and automation.
“I couldn’t be joining CarFinance 247 at a better stage in its lifecycle. After four years of high-growth, the business is at a place where its IT systems need to evolve to facilitate a constant expansion in both clients and staff.
“The opportunity to take a business’ IT proposition at this stage in its growth and have full ownership of it, as well as the freedom to shape it without the constraints that are often intrinsic in a corporate environment, is hugely appealing and exciting.”
Reg Rix, the CEO and Co-founder of CarFinance 247 said:
“With Ryan at the helm of our IT, we will be creating a best-in-class customer experience and world-class tech team that takes our business to the next level. We’re truly excited to be adding a CTO of his stature and experience to our band of bold, passionate and proud 247People.”
