Tom Hart has been promoted to claims sales director UK and Ireland at Audatex, making the step up from his previous role as head of account management.

Over the past 18 months, Hart was responsible for successfully appointing and developing a new national account management team capable of providing a broad spectrum of expertise, including parts, engineering and insurer operations.

Hart has held senior roles within Audatex for over 11 years and, most recently, is said to have been highly influential in the operating plan that saw the successful migration of the entire Irish market over to Audatex within a six-month timeframe.

Chris Wright, managing director at Audatex UK & Ireland, commented: “Tom is a dedicated and highly valued member of the Audatex team, and his promotion is richly deserved.

“He is commercially very experienced, with an impeccable track record of delivering for customers and the business as a whole. He prides himself on consistently high levels of client advocacy feedback, which is also instilled in the teams he leads.

“Tom is ideally equipped to lead our largest migration plan to new technology, as Qapter, the industry’s only globally available end-to-end claims management and estimating solution powered by AI, prepares to fully enter the global market in 2024.”
