Automotive F&I firm DealTrak has created 18 positions in the business to support expected growth in the coming months.

The company’s latest financial results showed a 13% increase in Q1 proposal numbers and a 10% uplift in the number of active sites year-on-year. More than 3.6m proposals were completed on the platform last year – representing potential transactions of £9.6bn.

To help support this growth, DealTrak has created 18 new positions within its Leeds technology hub – nine of which are still open to applicants.

Kate Swinscoe has joined as marketing manager, bringing 15 years’ industry experience to the role. James Barr, who has joined as business development manager, has 23 years’ experience in the automotive sector, while Helen Goodwin and Dean Jules have joined as management accountant and account manager respectively.

Wes Weaver has joined as scrum master, managing the process for how information is exchanged at DealTrak, while Kirstyn Thomas has been promoted to the role of product owner. The pair will work closely in order to achieve the firm’s targeted 200% rise in the number of insurance policy registrations sent via the platform by 2021.

Martin Hill, managing director at DealTrak said: “This is another demonstration of quality and strength being added to the DealTrak team, and I am delighted to welcome a vast array of talent to various departments within the company.

In February this year, DealTrak launched a compliance module on its dealer platform. The module will help manage regulated activity for the sale of automotive finance and insurance products for motor dealers, brokers, and F&I partners.

Christian Ingrey, head of insurance and data strategy, said; “Whether a small, independent retailer, or a multi-rooftop franchised dealer, most motor retailers rely heavily on the sale of F&I products in order to deliver their sales targets. With that in mind, it’s vital that efficient and compliant processes are in place to offer motor dealers a competitive advantage.”
