Martin Forbes

Chief Executive Officer – Chief Executive Officer


I have been with Cox Automotive since 2015, honoured to take on the role as CEO in 2018, and couldn’t be more proud to lead the UK organisation. 

The world is changing at a pace and I’m genuinely excited about the future of our business. These are transformational times for the automotive industry and we’re ready to be a driving force of innovation and positive disruption as the industry evolves. However, I truly believe that the success of a business starts with its people. If we focus on building the right team, with the right culture and continue to invest in our people we will win in the market. We will see a positive impact on productivity, service and most importantly customer satisfaction levels. 

I’m honoured to lead a fantastic team of people based across the UK, who give back so much to our local communities and are relentless in their drive to always do the right thing, no matter what the situation. People come first and because we have the best, I know we will succeed in our mission to transform the way the world buys, sells, owns and uses vehicles.
