Dealtrak appointments ‘bolster in-house expertise’

Promotion: Dealtrak's new head of sales, James Barr

Dealtrak has added to the nine appointments and promotions announced in June with the addition of four new members of staff as it continues to "bolster its in-house expertise".

The Leeds-based automotive F&I technology specialist announced the creation of 18 new positions earlier this year and has now filled 13 of those roles with the appointment of business development managers, Mark Hayter (North East) and Victoria Dowdall (North West), client services representative Edward Duffield and Midlands account manager Rachel Aldridge.

Alongside the addition of its new faces, Dealtrak James Barr – who joined the company as a business development manager earlier this year – has now been promoted to head of sales.

Barr said: “I’m delighted to be progressing my career with Dealtrak – it’s testament to the trust the brand places in its people.

“The latest raft of appointments highlights that we are committed to bringing further expertise to the firm and making Dealtrak stronger through collective understanding and knowledge of the sector.

“Mark, Victoria, Rachel and Edward will each ensure we continue to deliver a first class service and solutions to our clients. It’s also another example of the business appointing the best in class as we continue to grow and plan for the future.”

Revealing more detail about its new recruits, Dealtrak said that Dowdall had spent 12 years at DSG Group working across several departments – including its connected car finance division – before switching to an IT-based role linking tech distributors and resellers to finance.

Hayter’s CV includes work for Glass’s Guide, SG Petch and CDK Global.

Duffield will draw upon over nine years working within the financial sector – both in banking and the stock market – meanwhile, as Aldridge’s 20 years of industry experience will help her to “see existing relationships flourish alongside attracting new platform users”.

Dealtrak claimed that its latest business performance figures showed a 10% uplift in the number of active rooftops year on year as it passed more than 3.6m proposals through the platform in 2018 – representing potential transactions totalling £9.6bn.
