Adam Stott, 34, founded this used car dealership in 2009 after a three-year stint as a BMW salesman, selling his home to fund the business and initially running it from a spare bedroom in his parents’ house. Today, the company sells marques such as Ford, Audi and Mercedes-Benz from four dealerships across three sites in Essex and Suffolk. The business increased sales to £33.9m this year, partly as a result of its use of social media — it has 370,000 followers on Facebook and attributes £50m of its sales to social media since 2009.
