Alliance Inspection Management (AiM) announced on Monday morning it has named a new president and chief executive officer.
Chosen for the position is Steve Lambert, who will begin his tenure as CEO on Dec. 4, in the company’s Long Beach, Calif., offices.
AiM has hired Lambert to “strengthen the company’s core inspection and dealer floorplan audit businesses and scale the company for growth by developing new inspection services and products,” the company shared.
In his new role, Lambert will oversee all AiM operations and will report to the company’s board of directors.
Lambert joins the independent automotive inspection company from Nissan North America, where he most recently served as vice president of information systems. Previously at Nissan, he also held the position of president of Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (NMAC), and was responsible for all sales finance activity in North America, which included the oversight of Nissan Canada Finance and launching of Nissan Renault Finance Mexico.
“Steve is an accomplished business leader with proven experience in remarketing and information technology,” AiM board director and senior VP of Manheim Vehicle Advantage Joe George said.
“Under his guidance, AiM will accelerate the growth of its offsite inspections, saving time and making it easier for dealers and consumers. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with AiM to create next-generation inspection solutions that benefit clients and the industry,” he continued.
Lambert is already more than familiar with the company, as he served on AiM’s board of directors from 2005 to 2010. And during his tenure as head of NMAC, the company used AiM’s off-lease inspection and floor plan audit services.
“AiM is strategically positioned to lead the industry and consumer space in vehicle inspection services,” Lambert said. “We’ll continue on the path of being the gold standard for vehicle inspection services as well as being an innovator in the remarketing space.”
