Agora Data hires Beebe for business development position

An executive who spent more than 10 years at AmeriCredit and GM Financial now is part of the executive team at Agora Data.

The company that offers crowdsourced securitizations, reducing interest rate lines of credit and a technology platform supplying book value of paper for the subprime auto finance industry hired auto finance veteran Brett Beebe as senior vice president and head of corporate business development.

Agora Data said through a news release on Monday that Beebe will leverage his vast industry experience to expand Agora’s reach through joint ventures and other strategic partnerships.

“As Agora grows, we seek to identify, partner with, and, in some cases, acquire companies that complement our mission of enabling independent dealers to maximize their growth potential,” Agora Data chief executive officer Steve Burke said in the news release. “Brett is the ideal person to lead this charge. He knows how to create win-win relationships between dealers, consumers, and the industry.”

After being in sales and business development leadership roles at AmeriCredit and GM Financial, Beebe later held multiple senior leadership positions — including president and chief operating officer — at DriverUp, an online auto finance marketplace.

Agora welcomes Beebe’s deep industry knowledge and track record at a fintech start-up.

“Agora has already surpassed many significant milestones while providing attractive funding solutions and in-depth portfolio analytics to independent dealers and finance companies,” Beebe said.

“The next logical step is to expand the company’s strategic partnerships and joint venture opportunities,” he continued. “It’s time to level the playing field for even more dealers and positively transform the auto industry.”
