She will help introduce strategic initiatives that best leverage Agora’s assets and auto financing talents to optimize portfolios and balance sheets for small to mid-sized institutions including banks, credit unions, and finance companies.

Mancero spent more than 30 years at Wells Fargo, 20 of which were in the Asset-Backed Finance group providing senior lending facilities to consumer finance companies in the U.S. and Canada. She was responsible for market and business development, building strategic relationships with national brands, and developed new lending channels and programs for consumer finance assets.

Banks, credit unions, and finance companies will benefit from Agora’s wide range of financing solutions such as cleaning up transactions in their portfolio, reducing the capital investment needed to keep in-house finance company operations, or providing an exit strategy to free-up capital. I’m excited to be a part of Agora’s evolution as a highly innovative company and look forward to doing my part to positively transform the auto industry.”
