Deaun A. Flowers: When I started my career, it was as warranty administrator for a BMW dealership in the state of Florida. I then moved into finance when I relocated back to St. Louis in 1998 at Merollis Chevrolet. I spent the next 21 in auto financing, specializing in secondary finance and helping customers with challenged credit. I worked in several areas of the auto industry from administration to running a used-car center.
Next up is Deaun A. Flowers, who is a second chance finance manager at Lou Fusz Automotive Network.
AR: What accomplishment or moment in your career are you most proud of?
To continue the momentum started by our Women in Remarketing and Women in Auto Finance franchises, Auto Remarketing has launched Women in Retail, an awards program that specifically recognizes leaders on the retail side of the auto industry.
I am most proud of my drive to be the best and deliver quality work to both the organization as well as my committed customers.
Auto Remarketing: What was your career path to the retail auto industry? Did you always see yourself in this line of work?
AR: What advice would you have for someone just starting out in retail automotive?
A valuable contribution to my success was by learning all avenues of what it takes to make this all work. I spent many days learning what service administrators/advisers do as well as an administration office staff processes.
This inaugural class of honorees is spotlighted in the July 1 issue of Auto Remarketing, which includes Q&As with each recipient of the award.
