CarProof appoints HF director Ed Woiteshek to CEO
CarProof Corporation, a portfolio company of Hellman & Friedman (HF), has named Ed Woiteshek, formerly director with Hellman & Friedman (HF) and a director of Carproof, as its new CEO. Paul Antony, founder and previous CEO, will become Chairman of the board.
Woiteshek helped lead the purchase of a minority share of CarProof by Hellman & Friedman in August 2013.
“I want to thank everyone that has supported CarProof on its journey to drive a new industry standard in transparency. I’ve been so lucky to have led this tremendous company in an industry I love and have grown up in,” said Antony. “As a patron of CarProof in this journey, I realize that the skill sets required to lead us up to this point will not necessarily be the same as the ones required to lead us into the next chapter. With that said, the time is right to transition out of the CEO role and into the role of Chairman, providing strategic vision and insight to the company while stepping out of the day-to-day operations. It is my privilege to welcome Ed Woiteshek to CarProof as the new CEO.”
“Paul’s commitment to creating transparency in the automotive industry is the reason why CarProof exists today,” said Woiteshek. “Thanks to his vision and leadership over the past 14 years, CarProof has built a reputation as an industry leader and is on a path to enable a number of next-generation products that will add value to our loyal customers. It’s truly an honour to take on this role and be a part of a team that is changing the way vehicles are bought and sold. I look forward to working with all the great people at CarProof to aggressively pursue the company’s expansive strategic plans.”
