Audatex - a Solera company global provider of claims solutions

Soleraís David Shepherd takes on the role of Regional Managing Director of Audatex UK Ltd and Audatex SA (PTY) Ltd

3rd March 2017

David Shepherd has been announced as the new Regional Managing Director of Audatex UKSA replacing Paul Sykes.  

David joined Solera in 2008 and he has operated in a variety of international managing director positions, most recently as Head of Solera’s Global Account Management team. 

“I am delighted to be returning to the dynamic UK and South African markets,” comments Shepherd. “Although previously I have worked mainly within international roles at Solera, I have always kept a close interest in the UK market. I intend to build on the strong relationships, solutions and service levels that Paul and his team have established. With a key focus on achieving operational excellence, the enhancement of our digital journey and continuing to collectively bring the claims community together - with the ultimate focus on the end customer."

“David is a highly competent successor,” comments Sykes. “Given his experience within Solera and his extensive knowledge of the industry, I am confidently leaving this position in safe hands. I am very grateful for the trust that Solera has given me in my career, and wish the UK and global businesses every success for the future.”  

Paul Sykes has worked at Audatex for 20 years and has been highly instrumental to its success and unique market position. Sykes will remain with Audatex until a full handover has been concluded, ensuring a smooth transition. Following the transition, Paul will leave Audatex to pursue a new opportunity, which we wish him the very best success in.
