Harbor Credit, LLC (HC) is proud to announce the addition of industry veteran Steve Moretti to its Advisory Board. Mr. Moretti will provide leadership and insight on many of the company's strategic initiatives.
"Harbor Credit is excited to have Steve as a advisor," said Rob Gaudio, President of Harbor Credit. "He is a true auto industry veteran who has worked on all sides of the fence - from a national lender like Capital One to a major online publisher and dealer services company like Kelley Blue Book. He brings perspective from all parties to enhance our ability to provide high quality, targeted, consumer leads to our dealers, lenders, and partners."
Currently, Mr. Moretti is the SVP, Business Development for a publisher of large consumer oriented web sites. Previously he was the SVP of Business Development & Consumer Marketing for Interactive Financial Marketing Group, a special finance lead generation and marketing company within the automotive industry. From 2004 to 2007, Moretti worked for Kelley Blue Book as the Vice President of Business Development & Partnerships where he managed a segment of the company's business and worked closely on kbb.com, one of the nation's largest automotive information sites. Prior to joining KBB, Moretti was with PeopleFirst.com/Capital One Auto Finance for over 4 years, where as the Director of Business Development he helped grow that business into becoming the nation's largest online vehicle lender. He started his career in business development and marketing with First USA Bank, now part of JPMorgan Chase. Moretti earned a Master of Business Administration degree in Finance, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Operations and a minor in Economics from the University of Delaware.
Based on his experience, Mr. Moretti will be an advisor in the ongoing development of HC's lead products, legal compliance, financial services marketing, and lender/dealer network development.
"There are numerous dynamics currently at play within the auto finance industry. Lenders are tightening up their underwriting criteria, the dealer community's interest in acquiring quality auto finance leads is rising, and publishers are struggling to find the right solution specific to their needs. Harbor Credit has developed an outstanding technology with the ability to provide lenders, dealers, and publishers customized solutions; and I believe HC is in the best position to fulfill the complex and growing needs of the industry. I'm excited to help Rob and his team continue their momentum, and provide value where possible." said Mr. Moretti.
