Women in Auto Finance

I was grateful to have attended the Women in Auto Finance Luncheon in Vegas, an exclusive networking opportunity designed to support and cultivate female leadership in the industry. For having been the newest feature on the AFS agenda, attendance was encouragingly at full capacity.

The goal of the luncheon was to cultivate a more supportive community and culture for women in the auto finance sector. This special luncheon included keynotes from a highly regarded executive who shared her experiences and expertise in auto lending and leasing.

One of the most memorable moment of the luncheon was listening to special guest speaker, Renee Franck.

Franck spoke about her experience in dealership sales and finance. With a career that spans over 30 years in financial services, she oversaw bank systems conversions and technology initiatives, and managed office consolidations. She is now the national credit manager in the Dealer Financial Services division at SunTrust. Franks is the first female in the bank's history to hold the position -- you've made us women proud! I had the pleasure of meeting Renee after her talk, incredible women.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the presentations and had a chance to network amongst other attendees. It was a pleasure to speak with women from all areas of the business.

Hope to see you all at the next Women in Auto Finance Luncheon!
