Leeds, UK, May 2017: The UK’s leading F&I platform, DealTrak, has moved to stunning new offices in Leeds Dock, the heart of the city’s tech hub.
Its new headquarters are 5,300 sq ft of self-contained workspace over two floors that have been renovated to the highest standard. The office was previously used as Google’s Digital Garage and for event space during Leeds Digital Festival.
The office has a prime location right on the dock front and is accessible by water taxi from the train station. It comes with a pool table, classic arcade machine and barista-style coffee. Its neighbours on Leeds Dock include Sky, Ilk and the Royal Armouries New Dock Hall, which for the past two years has been the venue for the annual F&I Conference & Awards hosted by DealTrak.
The open plan office includes three meetings rooms named after Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, Alan Turing OBE, father of theoretical computer science, and the inspirational Falklands War hero, Simon Weston CBE. The Boardroom is named after Peter Laburn, co-creator of strategic leadership development programme ‘Lead With Humanity’. Peter is cited by DealTrak as a key influence in guiding the future strategic direction of the company.
DealTrak processes more than 2.5 million finance and insurance applications annually for the motor and leisure finance sectors. 35 developers, client services and senior management team have moved from their previous office in Wakefield to the new Leeds office. The additional space and prime location will allow DealTrak to attract more of the industry’s brightest talent, driving growth in line with the company’s ambitions.
Martin Hill, Managing Director of DealTrak, said: “We are delighted to have completed the next phase of our expansion plans.
“This exciting move to Leeds Dock follows on from rapid growth over the last two years and the rebranding to reflect the focus and direction of the business.
“The new office is a phenomenal space and offers a great opportunity to take our place amongst the thriving tech community of Leeds and attract even more talent as we continue with our ambitious growth plans in the motor industry.
“There’s a great energy and atmosphere at Leeds Dock and the team also share our ambitions for development, so we can’t wait to become part of this community.”
