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. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
