AGORA bolstered its executive team this week with a pair of new additions.
The Texas-based provider of technology solutions for the financial services industry announced Jim Bass has joined the management team as the senior vice president of finance and Zach Maynard as the senior vice president of marketing.
AGORA founder and chief executive officer Steve Burke highlighted both executives’ experience in finance will enhance the growth of its platform and AGORA’s ever-expanding scope of services and solutions it offers to auto finance companies and dealers nationwide.
“Jim is an experienced automotive finance leader with over 30 years of success building great organizations. His senior executive leadership roles with Auto One Acceptance, Autoeloan.com, Driveelect, First Investors Financial Services and Center Street Finance position Jim well to help lead the growth and success of the AGORA community,” Burke said.
“Zach started his career building a successful wealth management practice; his true passion has always been technology and its disruptive power in industries across the globe. Zach’s dedication to market disruptive technologies has us excited to have Zach on our management team,” Burke continued.
“Our growth over the past year has been exceptional, and we are thrilled to have Jim and Zach as contributors to take AGORA to even higher levels of success and innovation,” Burke went on to say. “As part of our senior management team, their experience aids us in our development and a fourth-quarter release of our most market-disruptive products to date.”
