Two new directors of business development have joined Northpoint Commercial Finance’s Field Sales Organization.
With a background in floorplan financing, Richard Derbonne will lead development efforts in Texas and Oklahoma. Derbonne joins the Northpoint team from GE Franchise Finance with deep experience gained over more than 20 years in financial services.
Previously, Derbonne held senior sales and management positions with such companies as Transamerica, Bombardier, First Horizon National and GE Commercial Distribution Finance.
Based in North Carolina, Greg Nash will lead development efforts in the eastern states of North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. He brings more than 25 years of floor plan financing experience with companies such as ITT, Deutsche Financial Services, Textron Financial, and most recently, NextGear Capital. Nash’s strong track record and experience includes a heavy emphasis on business development and growing dealer relationships.
“This is an exciting growth period for Northpoint as we expand our customer base and provide innovative, customized finance solutions to help customers grow,” said Jeff Olander, vice president of Northpoint’s National Accounts. “With their decades of experience and top-notch skills, I’m confident Rick and Greg will both play a key role in deepening relationships in our key market areas and strengthening our resources.”
Director of Business Development Greg DeCastro, who previously covered Texas and Oklahoma, has relocated to South Carolina and will cover that state along with Georgia and eastern Tennessee.
