Leeds-headquartered DealTrak – the automotive F&I technology specialist – has appointed a number of new faces and restructured its senior teams, as the business gears up for significant growth over the next 12 months.

At the helm of the business is a fresh Executive Committee (ExCo) led by Managing Director Martin Hill.

Ian Tinker joins as Commercial Director following almost 20 years working in the automotive industry, and Joanna Burton has come on board as Financial Controller.

Head of Insurance Christian Ingrey has assumed additional responsibility as Head of Data Strategy, Ben Moore is now IT Director and the sixth ExCo member is Operations Director Steve Lees, who has been with the business since July 2016.

As part of this organisational restructure, DealTrak has also formed a new six-strong management team comprising of the company’s new Head of Marketing Simon Banoub, recently-appointed Business Development Manager Jon Sheard and Product Manager Katie Barwood who joined the business in March.

Together with DealTrak’s long-standing Head of Consumer Credit Neil Watkiss, Compliance Manager Sam Marsden and Head of Business Support Lisa McNaught, they will help to ensure product, service and culture consistency during this period of significant expansion.

The business currently operates a £3.6m turnover and has ambitious plans for the future and is planning for a 130% client uplift target by 2021, a 40% increase in the value of automotive lending through the platform, as well as a 200% rise in the number of insurance policy registrations.

Managing Director Martin Hill comments: “We’re now clearer on who is responsible for what, we’ve appointed some of the most experienced talent in the industry to take on our newly-created roles, and we have a much stronger representation of the entire company’s voice at a senior level, as we work towards our ambitious 2021 targets.”
