Irving-based Exeter Finance Corp., which buys and services auto loans made to people with spotty credit, plans to more than double its roughly 374 person head count, open 12 to 15 new branch offices and launch a 76,061 square-foot customer service and collections center near its Irving headquarters that will ultimately accommodate 400 to 500 people. Exeter will be hiring underwriters, customer service and collections employees.
