Be Wiser Insurance

The Retail Motor Industry's (RMI) Society of Motor Auctions (SMA) has appointed Louise Wallis as its new head.

Ms Wallis will highlight the benefits of using auctions as a method of disposing vehicle in addition to sourcing for new stock.

This may be of interest to car insurance customers, who could be looking for a good deal on cover once they pick up a used car.

Her existing position as head of business development for the RMI's National Franchised Dealers Association will be combined with the new job.

According to current RMI director Sue Robinson, Ms Wallis' experience in the sector will help the body meet "many challenges".

She said: "Louise's industry and business background will ensure that the auction sector grows in stature, and that the SMA continues to work with relevant stakeholders and government departments."

Earlier this month, the RMI called for a cut in interest rates in order to help bolster sales of vehicles over 2008.
