Two operators in the auto finance space recently celebrated year No. 2 together.
GWC Warranty recently marked two years of partnership with Metrolina Credit by joining the Carolinas-based finance company at the grand opening of its new corporate headquarters and flagship branch office in Charlotte, N.C.
GWC Warranty and Metrolina first partnered in 2015, and have since worked with more than 300 dealerships to protect thousands of drivers from costly, out-of-pocket repair bills. Metrolina Credit, which operates five branches in North and South Carolina partners with GWC Warranty to co-market each other’s services, which opens the doors for dealers to work vehicle service contracts into more financing deals.
“The ribbon cutting we celebrated earlier this year was a celebration of how far Metrolina Credit has come since we took ownership of the company in 2013,” Metrolina Credit chief executive officer Doug Marohn said. “We couldn’t have experienced such amazing success over the years without the partnership of other leaders in the industry like GWC Warranty.
“Together, we have been able to help more dealers than ever before protect their customers from costly repair bills, which in turn helps ensure our customers avoid unexpected defaults,” Marohn continued.
GWC Warranty’s area vice president of strategic alliances, Wendy Pratt, was invited to join Marohn and his team at the company’s grand opening in August. Pratt joined Metrolina employees, local representatives and industry partners to celebrate the success Metrolina has experienced in recent years.
According to Marohn, “The increased space and improved facilities will help us serve our borrowing customers and automobile dealer partners even better now and for many years to come.”
