CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jamie Anderson has been named vice president for North American sales at UVeye, a rapidly expanding supplier of high-speed vehicle-inspection systems for the auto industry.

Automated Inspections Improve Safety
“The extensive automotive dealership and fleet sales experience that Jamie Anderson brings to UVeye from Cox, BacklotCars and KAR Global will help further accelerate the rapid growth we’re experiencing in North America,” said Amir Hever, UVeye’s co-founder and CEO. “His ability to develop award-winning sales teams is sure to benefit UVeye in the months and years ahead as well.”
Hever added that UVeye will have a significant number of new job openings in the U.S. over the next 12 to 18 months due to strong interest in UVeye’s inspection systems among car dealers, used-car auction houses and major fleet operators.
Founded in 2016, UVeye offers automated vehicle-inspection systems based on advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies for both the automotive and homeland security industries.
The company’s systems are dramatically increasing the speed and quality of inspection processes at new- and used-car dealerships, used-car auction houses and major vehicle fleets, as well as on automotive assembly lines.
UVeye currently has facilities in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region, including offices in Israel, Japan, Germany and the United States. CarMax, the largest used-car retailer in the U.S., recently joined a group of UVeye investors that currently includes Volvo Cars, Hyundai Motors and Toyota Tsusho.
Anderson holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from California State University-Long Beach. He will be based in Charlotte.
