All the pieces are present – excellent operations, the start of a growth trajectory, a solid leadership team, a clear vision for the future and an ability to invest in the buildout required to become the #1 name associated with auto refinance. My expectation is that we are at the very beginning of an amazing journey of which I am proud to be a part.”
