DIMONT brings in 3 new experienced executives


DIMONT is coming to Used Car Week armed with three additional experienced executives within its workforce.

This week, DIMONT, one of the largest providers of insurance claims adjusting and collateral loss mitigation services, announced the addition of three industry experts to its growing staff including:

—Lynette Richter as director of investor claims

—Taylor Thurman as client development director of auto claims

—Suzi Straffon as director of engagement marketing.

Richter will focus on ensuring compliance with investor and insurer requirements and guidelines. Richter’s vast experience includes more than 35 years in claims and default management within the mortgage servicing industry.

Most recently, Richter served as vice president of claims, charge-offs and loss analysis with Bank of Oklahoma.  Much of her career focused on supervising large teams both within mortgage companies and consulting firms, as well as managing performance-based reimbursement structures, property conveyance and property maintenance, all aimed at reducing costs.

Thurman is an experienced auto finance business development professional, having most recently served as national sales manager for California-based National Creditors Connection (NCCI), a full-service borrower contact company.

Straffon is also an experienced marketing professional with 15 of her 25 years in marketing spent within the auto finance industry. Past roles include marketing management positions at Exeter Finance, a Dallas-based subprime finance company, and RouteOne, an online credit application management system serving franchised dealers nationwide.

Straffon’s experience includes designing and implementing all aspects of marketing, including advertising, media relations, public relations, communications, events, social media and strategic planning.

“Our recent appointments of these three great contributors will greatly enhance our ability to grow and service our mortgage and auto clientele,” DIMONT president and chief executive Denis Brosnan said. “These professionals each bring a unique set of experiences, skills and relationships that will continue to drive our business forward.”
