To change the way people buy used cars and fix the largely broken used car market.
Like many markets, European consumers know the pains of buying used cars. To change this paradigm, Spotawheel started as a mobile mechanic to give buyers peace of mind right outside the dealer lot. Over the years, the company evolved into a full-stack e-commerce platform for used cars. The company offers quality inventory and a transparent customer experience to typically underserved, value-sensitive customers. To date, Spotawheel has sold thousands of vehicles in Greece and Poland, with plans to expand into a pan-European platform, capitalizing on a massive $540B second hand vehicle market with over 35M annual end-user transactions.
Charis is the CEO and co-founder of Spotawheel and a car enthusiast by nature. He holds an MBA from Carnegie Mellon, Tepper School of Business and an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Piraeus. Prior to founding Spotawheel Charis worked for McKinsey & Company as well as the OTE Group, leading multiple strategic and customer facing initiatives of global footprint.
