RVI Group is partnering with the Maryann Keller & Associates global automotive strategy consultancy to provide subscription-based analytics as part of a new division launched by the company, RVI Analytics.
These analytics will be provided to capital markets firms that have auto-related investments. RVI is launching the subscriptions in July.
Joe Halovanic, recently hired by RVI, will lead sales for RVI Analytics. Halovanic’s background in the auto residual risk management space includes time with such financial organizations as Toyota Financial Services, Ally and U.S. Bank.
“This is an exciting time for RVI,” said Rene Abdalah, senior vice president of RVI’s Passenger Vehicle Group, in a news release.
“Further developing our analytics and creating subscription products in partnership with MK&A will expand our reach and enhance our client services. We are delighted that Joe has joined our team – our capability is strong and our value proposition unique,” he said.
MK&A — which, like RVI, is based in Stamford, Conn. — is led by renowed analyst Maryann Keller, who is a former and current director of several public auto companies.
Keller is a featured speaker at this summer’s Automotive Intelligence Summit, a new event from Cherokee Media Group that will delve into such topics as artificial intelligence, blockchain, mobile e-commerce, mobility, investment capital and more.
AIS 2018 is being held July 24-26 in Raleigh, N.C.
