Matthieu Flinois, Marketparts’ Sales Manager, is an expert in the automotive sector with more than 25 years’ experience.
Before joining Marketparts, Matthieu began his career in the car service industry, where he worked as a technician and learned about mechanics. He then transitioned to sales and worked as a salesman at Mister Auto for 2 years, where he sold car parts. His experience in sales led him to work for 9 years in the export of spare parts in Africa for SMT Africa.
Matthieu’s extensive knowledge of the automotive industry has allowed him to gain a unique perspective on the future of the industry. According to him, the European automotive park will evolve in 5-10 years and will be driven by the African continent.
The industry will have to evolve towards, and prioritize, a business with used parts, as electric and hydrocarbon vehicles become more popular, Matthieu believes that there will be a need to learn the new business of selling automotive parts for these types of vehicles.
Despite his busy schedule, Matthieu always finds time to indulge in his hobbies. He is a fervent supporter of Olympique Lyonnais and has been following the team for years. He also practised martial arts for a few years and has a keen interest in films, with Dikkenek being his favourite.
Like Marketparts, Matthieu is concerned about the environment and does his part to contribute towards a sustainable future. He sorts his household waste and encourages others to do the same. As the automotive industry evolves towards more sustainable practices, Matthieu is committed to being at the forefront of this change and ensuring that Marketparts continues to be the largest global wholesale & retail marketplace for automotive spare parts.
