Priority One Financial Services, the recreational industry’s oldest and largest F&I outsourcing provider, continues to grow its operations department.
Bradley (Brad) Brown and Blake Hines started earlier this month as business managers, and will work with dealers, their customers, and lenders to ensure that all groups meet their goals, according to a news release.
“We are very pleased and excited with our growth in operations,” commented Rina Aponte, operations manager. “We proudly welcome Brad and Blake to our great F&I team at Priority One!”
Both Brad and Blake have extensive F&I and sales experience in the marine, power sports and car industry along with JM&A presentation and menu process training experience.
Hones, a finance graduate from Florida State University, most recently worked at a local recreational dealer as a finance manager responsible for business to business operations. In his free time he likes sailing, scuba diving, golfing and cheering on the Seminoles.
Brown, new to the Tampa Bay area, was a finance manager at a car dealership in Houston, Texas. Prior to Texas and Florida, he used to play college football at Arizona State University. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his son, traveling, cooking and cheering on his alma mater, the Sun Devils.
“We are extremely happy to have Brad and Blake join our team,” commented Heather Mariscal, president of Priority One. “Both men have a great combination of being highly educated and trained in F&I and also having a winning mentality of great salespeople.”
