An area native has been making a name for himself on the national banking scene, and got a big promotion recently. Mark Beecher, Consumer Finance National Sales Manager of NFG, has been named as Executive Vice President.
Beecher has been at Bank of the West for 17 years, and has been working during that time to expand the bank's consumer finance business nationwide.
During his time there, Bank of the West has become a leader in the industry, ranking first in RV finance and among the top three in Marine finance nationally.
Beecher is responsible for a sales team with over 50 employees that covers over 4,400 dealers around the country. Under his leadership, the group delivered $3.7 billion in originations in 2012 alone.
Beecher also manages Essex Credit, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bank of the West.
