Carmel auto-dealer lender plans to add 169 workers

Automotive financial services firm NextGear Capital plans to open another office in Carmel and add 169 workers, the company announced Monday morning.

IBJ revealed the company's expansion plans in a Feb. 1 story. At the time, the company said it planned to add 225 jobs to its existing work force of 225.

The positions will be primarily customer service, information technology and administrative jobs.

The company, which provides financing programs for more than 17,000 automotive dealers, said it will invest $19.5 million to lease and renovate a 33,000-square-foot office at 11799 N. College Ave., in a building once occupied by life insurance giant Conseco Inc., which is now called CNO Financial Group Inc.

NextGear will maintain its existing office at 1320 City Center Drive in Carmel.

The company plans to use the new space to house its dealer services, auction services and business development center.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered NextGear up to $1.3 million in conditional tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans.

NextGear Capital is the name adopted by the financial services division of Atlanta-based Manheim Inc. after it acquired Carmel-based Dealer Services Corp. last year.

NextGear officials told IBJ in February that it expects to grow its local employee base from 225 to 450 sometime over the next year through relocations from Atlanta and new hires.

Recent job openings in Carmel posted on the company’s web site include a multimedia web designer, a risk account manager, a risk administrator and an audit-reconciliation representative. The company also recently hired a vice president of industry relations.

NextGear Capital provides automotive financing options for more than 17,000 dealers and 1,000 auctions in the United States and Canada.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
