Englewood, CO – May 23, 2016 iLendingDIRECT has announced today that its CEO, Nancy Fitzgerald, has been recognized as a 2016 Women in Remarketing Honoree by Auto Remarketing.
The Women in Remarketing Award is an annual recognition of female leaders in the remarketing and used car business. Nancy Fitzgerald is one of 20 honorees this year who received this prestigious recognition.
Nancy Fitzgerald is a 25-year-old auto refinancing veteran. Nancy started her career in 1991 when she and her late husband, Patrick, opened a small dealership in Denver. iLendingDIRECT has grown since then, from a small garage building to a company that now employs more than 150 people.
Nancy became the President and CEO of iLendingDIRECT when Patrick passed away in 2014 from a tragic accident riding his bike home from work. While grieving over the loss of her husband, Nancy not only rebuilt the management team of iLendingDIRECT but also took the company to the next level and grew the business by 35% last year. This achievement was well recognized by many of iLendingDIRECT’s industry partners.
“Nancy Fitzgerald is a well-respected, tenacious go-getter, and extremely pleasant to do business with. We’ve been doing business together for over 6 years. I couldn’t think of a better professional who deserves this award and has earned this privilege,” said Steve Bender, Director of Information Technology at Fleet Street.
Driven by the love to help people get ahead in life, iLendingDIRECT under Nancy’s leadership is known for its excellent customer services and ability to develop innovative solutions that deliver improved financial outcomes for its customers. Receiving the 2016 Women in Remarketing Award is a clear tribute to Nancy’s leadership and her passion to excel and deliver solutions of the best value to consumers in the used car industry. Nancy was humbled by this acknowledgement and thanked her team for their support by her side during the most challenging time in her life.
“To even be included among this caliber of women is so humbling to me. Being relatively new in this industry and being embraced by the women, and quite honestly mentored by many of the other honorees, has been such an incredible experience. This is not an award I can accept as just Nancy Fitzgerald. I could only accept this if it were in the name of iLendingDIRECT, as it’s my team who truly deserves this award.” says Nancy Fitzgerald, CEO & President of iLendingDIRECT.
She says further, “The integrity of my sales floor lends itself to the quality of our customer service. We treat everyone like family here – it’s why we were able to grow 35% last year and are on track to grow by 50% this year. It’s because we care about our customers. It is such an honor for this award to be bestowed upon my company from this organization, to be recognized for all the work we’ve done, and will continue to do. To be acknowledged by Auto Remarketing magazine…what a privilege it is for iLendingDIRECT to be included in Women in Remarketing’s Woman of the Year award,”
