NEXUS Automotive International Creates Ecommerce Business Unit

Robbie Stevens named head of Ecommerce Business Unit.

NEXUS Automotive International has announced the launch of a new business unit dedicated to e-commerce. Robbie Stevens has been appointed head of Ecommerce Business Unit, starting in January. The organization says his appointment will allow NEXUS to answer the needs and priorities of its community to support the growth of the planned upcoming transformation.

A new business to better fit the priorities of the N! community 

The launch of the Ecommerce Business Unit – like the launch of the Heavy-Duty unit – is the perfect illustration of how N! supports its community, the group says, accelerating and generating growth and the move from “Parts” to “Parts and Services” through the diversification of its activities.

On one hand, the creation of this dedicated Ecommerce Business Unit is answering the needs of the e-commerce players – part of the N! community since its creation in 2014 – to create value. This department will, on the other hand, create tools and services for the traditional players to support their upcoming transformation.

Ultimately, this new Business Unit could generate new entrepreneurial initiatives that could become future start-ups incubated by NEXUS, it says.

Robbie Stevens has been involved in the automotive aftermarket for 20 years. First, he founded his own successful automotive online company before joining Mister-Auto, as head of Marketplace Business Development to expand its global marketplace footprint. Then, Stevens was promoted to country manager (UK & Ireland) in 2017, before becoming ‘sales-focused’ as a freelancer. Stevens then launched Ford Motor Company’s first ever B2C ecommerce strategy with webshops and marketplaces in the “Big 5” EU markets along with North America as head of Global Sales Growth & Marketing for Autonative. 

“We are very happy to welcome Robbie, who knows the industry very well, and start the new year with such a major project for N!. Indeed, innovation is part of the N! DNA since its creation. Our motto is to focus on supporting our community and provide some tools to lead the transformation; as we have done in previous years and will continue to do so for the coming years ahead,” said Gael Escribe, CEO of NEXUS Automotive International.
