Leeds Dock-headquartered tech firm, DealTrak, has started 2020 in style – with the appointment of a new head of delivery, as well as launching the search for several senior roles within the team.
New recruit Gary Burton will oversee the design, development and implementation of a range of new products and services for the automotive finance and insurance (F&I) specialist – part of the Auto Protect Group.
To further bolster expertise at the company, which is set to unveil the latest iteration of its interface later this year, DealTrak is also looking to appoint a lead developer, scrum master, and additional developers, within the coming weeks.
Commenting on joining the team, Gary 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.”
Ben Moore, IT director added: “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.”
DealTrak is one of the UK’s leading automotive finance and insurance (F&I) specialists, with its software used by over 1,000 dealerships across the length and breadth of the country. The news follows DealTrak’s appointment into the AutoProtect Group in November 2019.
