About Lightstone Star Reacher F&I Awards
Lightstone Auto launched the Star Reacher F&I Awards in April 2021 to recognize and reward F&I managers in the automotive industry. This one-of-a-kind incentive program is available exclusively to Lightstone users and customers through their bespoke Signio platform.
The program measures the performance of F&I managers in five key areas that drive industry excellence and drive digital adoption in the industry.
Each quarter, the winners of each category receive prizes and this culminates in an annual awards ceremony where overall performance over the 12 month period is recognised.
“At Lightstone Auto, we believe in the value and impact of F&I managers on an automotive dealership’s profitability and this program creates an opportunity to recognize and celebrate top performing F&I managers. I look forward to this annual program becoming a highlight on South African dealer calendars,” said Wessels.
