DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. and Alpharetta, Ga. — DataScan, a subsidiary of World Omni Financial Corp. and provider of wholesale finance accounting and risk management systems and services, today announced that Ed Brown will assume the role of president.

Brown, a tenured executive from parent company JM Family Enterprises and its various business units, including World Omni, succeeds Brent Sergot, who was recently promoted to group vice president of Originations for Southeast Toyota Finance, another subsidiary of World Omni.

Since 2003, Brown has held the leadership positions of group vice president of World Omni Third Party Companies; president of JM&A Brasil; and group vice president of aviation, marine and medical services for JM Family. In 2016, he returned to World Omni as group vice president of operations. He will now relocate to Atlanta from Deerfield Beach, Fla., and work closely with the DataScan team.

According to officials, DataScan has transformed itself over the past three years and is now well positioned to further improve its operational and financial results with Brown at the helm. During 2013, DataScan acquired Launch Technologies LLC and Field-Logic LLC, expanding the reach, talent and technology depth of the company.

As part of its transformation, DataScan also underwent a total rebranding. The company also sold its lease inspection business to Adesa, focusing DataScan squarely on the floorplan lending industry. DataScan currently offers comprehensive solutions to banks, independent finance companies and captive financial institutions.
