Tom Steenson, F&I Development Manager
Tom was Remit Showroom’s first F&I Development Manager, joining in late 2011. Tom joined the motor trade in 1985 as a sales executive and within a year was promoted to business manager, a role that he held until 1990 when he joined Pat Ryan and Associates - now Aon Corporation. From 1998 he spent seven years managing business managers nationally for a large manufacturer-owned group before working for four years managing F&I programmes for an insurance company in China, the Czech Republic & Hungary. Tom’s speciality is ‘calling the bluff’ of people in the showroom who think it can’t be done. He simply rolls up his sleeves and shows them exactly how results can be achieved.
