Automotive F&I firm DealTrak has appointed Gary Burton as head of delivery, while the firm is also looking to recruit several senior roles within the team.
Burton will oversee the design, development and implementation of a range of new products and services.
DealTrak is also looking to appoint a lead developer, scrum master and additional developers within the coming weeks.
Burton said: “I’ve spent the last 10 years leading projects and IT operations globally across payments, finance and transportation systems – so this role is right up my street! From my first project overseeing a small data centre relocation in Moscow, as well as leading on cloud migrations, to more recently heading up IT services provided to the Oyster platform in London, I’ve always enjoyed translating an idea into a tangible product.”
“I’ve heard lots about DealTrak recently, and when I found out the organisation was looking for a head of delivery, I was interested from the start. Not only is it a great cultural fit, but I’m completely bought into the direction of the business and the unique opportunity available to really transform the automotive industry,” he added.
IT director Ben Moore said: “Gary’s role will guide the continued delivery of innovative new products and services – something which is fundamental to the ongoing development of DealTrak in an ever-changing space.”
“He has an impressive CV and has hit the ground running, which is crucial as we prepare to migrate to the new DealTrak platform and to look to him to turn ideas – which may drive revenue or enhanced client functionality – into reality,” he concluded.
In November, AutoProtect Group announced the addition of DealTrak to its portfolio of assets.
AutoProtect Group is a leading provider of insurance and warranty products worldwide, and the addition of DealTrak will see services used by over 4,000 UK households.
