CarGurus continues to strengthen its presence in Europe.

The company said Wednesday it has hired former Dropbox executive Wendy Harris as its vice president of European sales.

Harris, who was most recently director of EMEA core enterprise sales at Dropbox, will be based out of the CarGurus European headquarters in Dublin.

She had been at Dropbox since 2015, with previous stops at AdRoll, Facebook and Goldman Sachs.  

“We are thrilled to welcome Wendy to our team. She is an experienced sales leader with an impressive track record of driving sales growth and developing high-performance sales teams,” CarGurus chief operating officer Sam Zales said in a news release.

“CarGurus is now the most visited online automotive marketplace in the United States, and we are building our presence in Europe,” Zales said. “Not only do we provide a trusted and transparent shopping experience for consumers, we also deliver exceptional value for dealers through our customer acquisition marketing products.

“Wendy will help us build on the success we’ve had to date and guide our European sales operations going forward.”

While at AdRoll, Harris was head of UK mid-market sales for the digital advertising and re-targeting sofware-as-a-service business. Her time with Facebook was in content marketing in Dublin. 

Harris was a European and U.S. shares trader for 11 years at Goldman.

“CarGurus is a pioneering company and I am very excited to be a part of this talented team,” Harris said.

“The technical innovation that CarGurus brings to digital automotive retail drives exceptional value for dealers, and I look forward to forging strong relationships with our customers as we continue to build our business in Europe.”

CarGurus, which was founded in the U.S. in 2006, rolled out in the UK win in 2015 and then Germany last year. It currently operates in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Germany. It became a publicly traded company last year.
