ATLANTA, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Safe-Guard is pleased to announce the opening of a third office location in Irvine, California to better service clients across the United States and Canada. With recent growth in the automotive industry, an increased focus from auto dealers on Finance & Insurance (F&I) products, and desire from consumers for complete and care-free auto protection, demand for F&I products is at an all-time high. Established in 1992, Safe-Guard is headquartered in Atlanta and opened an office in Toronto to service Canadian clients in early 2013.
The expansion to Irvine also allows Safe-Guard to grow their training capacity and support west coast partners in training initiatives through Safe-Guard University. The office includes advanced training facilities and technologies to host corporate, regional, and area sales persons. Safe-Guard University and other customized training programs are led by Safe-Guard managers with real world dealer experience.
"We're very excited about the opening of our Irvine office," said Randy Barkowitz, CEO of Safe-Guard. "Client service is an important part of who we are. Having an office in Irvine will allow us to focus on west coast partners to help them grow their business and create long-term customers. And having a state of the art facility on the west coast will help us expand our training capacity in order to continue to propel our client's business forward."
The Safe-Guard Irvine office opened in December of 2013.
