Why Automotive is at CMP’s Core:

CMP’s founder is Alan Crouch MBA. A Fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry, qualified Programme and Project Manager, ibd Group Ltd accredited business Advisor and highly trained business strategy and business development strategy consultant.

With seven Automotive business turnarounds to his name, he identified the flaws of the traditionally acclaimed market-leading consultancies, their lack of understanding of ‘Automotive’ and the very fact that few even invest in ‘Automotive’ as an industry sector, with some not even detailing ‘Automotive’ as a sector focus within their business websites, rather treating the sector as an additional ‘nice-to-have’. Alan also witnessed first-hand the serious negative effects that project staff can inflict on businesses if they are not from the Automotive sector.

With over 25 years in Automotive in roles to include General Manager, Operations Director, Sales and Marketing Director, Managing Director and CEO of which includes an initial seven years in Contract Hire & Leasing and Dealer, followed by a nineteen year career in Vehicle Auctions, Automotive Remarketing and heading a UK Marketing Leading Hand Car Wash company.

‘Bringing together Theory and Practice’ is a CMP guiding principle. All Consultants are both highly qualified and proven Senior Executives who offer you experience, direct and no-nonsense delivery based on your business needs. This brings together the ‘Theory and Practice’ of business, of which Alan, CMP and its clients believe is a prerequisite for real success.
