Doug Daniel brings years of experience to credit union-focused vehicle protection services firm

Boca Raton, Fla. (Dec. 31, 2012) – Intercontinental Warranty Services, Inc. (IWS), a provider of after-market vehicle protection services to credit unions throughout the country, announces the addition of Doug Daniel in the role of National Sales Manager. A veteran of the automotive finance and service contract industries, Daniel has more than 35 years of experience working in finance and sales management roles.

“Doug is known in the credit union community for his work with vehicle financing and leasing programs, as well as for his strong record of client service,” says James H. Hawk, President/ CEO. “I’m pleased to have Doug join us at IWS and know that our clients will benefit from his considerable expertise.”

Among his abundant experience, Daniel has worked in all aspects of consumer finance, including for Royal Administration Services, Inc. and Triad Financial Corporation (division of Ford Motor Company), where he was responsible for the sales staff and provided training on aftermarket products such as vehicle service agreements (VSA). Most recently, he served as a regional manager for Crif Lending Solutions, Inc., working to develop and grow credit union auto loan portfolios and lease programs.

“I am a strong believer in the value proposition of the products IWS provides to credit unions and their members,” said Daniel. “IWS has a solid history of high-quality customer service and support, and I’m very happy to be part of the team.”

In his new role, Daniel will be responsible for developing sources for product distribution, as well as directing day-to-day sales operations and maintaining customer relationships.

IWS has served the credit union community for more than 20 years, providing VSA, Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBI), and Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) to their members in conjunction with their auto loans.

Hawk says the addition of Daniel marks the beginning of a corporate-wide staffing increase. Next up, IWS will soon be hiring a national trainer, as well as a regional manager. The Company also plans to add to its account executive and IT staff members.
