Dean Pipitone, Managing Director of Cooper Solutions, celebrates 20th year with the software and digital solutions business

Cooper Solutions has been developing and providing software and digital solutions for the retail automotive industry since 2001. This month marks Dean Pipitone’s 20th year with the business, a milestone to celebrate.

Dean joined Cooper Solutions when it was a very small business but with very big ideas.  Having worked for BMW, Dean brought with him plenty of knowledge of the workings of the Automotive industry, and an understanding of the pressures dealers face.

As the driving force behind the success of FullCover, Dean oversaw consistent year on year increases in the number of days retailers took advantage of the daily rate insurance product for customer loans.

Finely tuning FullCompliance, Dean led the development of software that combats the threat of six-figure fines faced by dealerships failing to comply with BIK tax guidelines and vehicle banding for employees.

Dean commented: “Working for Cooper Solutions has been an absolute privilege. We operate in an incredibly dynamic sector so listening and responding to the ever-changing needs of our customers is key.  To do this consistently and effectively is only possible with the support and input from a highly motivated and professional team –  something we pride ourselves on across the business. In 2019, we were acquired by PIB Group, with whose support we rode the waves of the pandemic alongside our customers and under whose ownership we continue to adapt and enhance our products and increase our market share.”

As Managing Director, Dean works tirelessly to move the business forward. His mission is to enhance the experience Cooper Solutions’ retailer clients offer their customers, whether they are looking to buy, or returning for aftersales support.  Continuously refining and improving each product is vital in ensuring the business helps retailers drive processes, performance and profit.

Dean continued: “I’m very proud of the market leading products we have developed, testament to our committed team of experts. We always say that it’s our people who make Cooper Solutions shine, and it is an honour to celebrate 20 years with business.”
