Former CarGurus Executive Marty Blue Joins Recurrent Board

Today the Board of Directors at Recurrent expands with a new member. Martha (Marty) Blue joins as a seasoned industry executive with leadership roles in technology startups and automotive marketplaces. 

Marty’s experience is truly unparalleled. She is a senior advisor to carmakers on EV strategy at Boston Consulting Group, an entrepreneur-in-residence at Harvard Business School, and a former SVP of business development at CarGurus, the largest automotive digital marketplace in the US based on unique monthly visitors. It is a breath and depth of wisdom that will propel Recurrent’s next stage of growth. 

“Adding Marty to the Board is a big deal to me and the rest of our leadership team,” said Scott Case, Recurrent CEO. “She has already navigated many of the challenges we’ll face as a growing presence in the auto domain in the coming years.”

For more than 8 years, Marty was an integral part of the leadership team at Cargurus. She reported to the CEO/COO and guided the company through a successful IPO in October 2017. During her time with the company, CarGurus grew from 14 to 700+ employees with a market cap in excess of $4 billion. In addition to leading Business Development, Marty also launched the Sales, B2B Marketing, Product, and Industry Relations functions.  

“I have been fortunate in my career to work with some very fast-growing and successful companies,” said Marty Blue. “Recurrent is poised to be one of the next household names in automotive so I am thrilled to be along for the ride in this dynamic green tech sector. After years of helping people find their next car, it will also be fulfilling to help people find their first electric car as we work to improve the relationship between transportation and the environment.”
