Navitas Credit Appoints Hill SVP of Finance as Paris Announces Retirement

Navitas Credit, an equipment financing company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Community Bank, appointed Rob Hill senior vice president of finance, succeeding John Paris, who retired from the company.

“John has been an invaluable force, instrumental in propelling the company’s growth and prosperity,” Mike Bruman, CEO of Navitas, said. “His departure marks the end of an era, but we are confident in a seamless transition as we navigate forward, emboldened by his legacy and under the adept leadership of Rob, whose expertise, leadership capabilities and demonstrated success align seamlessly with our objectives, positioning him to drive exceptional outcomes at Navitas. His background will enhance our commitment to delivering unparalleled customer experiences within the industry.”

Since joining Navitas in 2011, Paris has played a pivotal role in implementing strategic financial initiatives that bolstered growth and success for the company.

“It has been a privilege to witness the remarkable evolution and rise to prominence at Navitas,” Paris said. “The timing is opportune for me to entrust the financial reins to an accomplished leader like Rob.”

Before his tenure at Navitas, Paris served as CFO of Spirit of America National Bank, a division of Charming Shoppes. His prior experience in the equipment finance industry includes roles at Advanta Business Services, initially as vice president of finance and later as CFO. Paris  is a certified public accountant and a certified treasury professional.

Hill has experience in financial reporting, budgeting, compliance, risk management and strategic planning.

“I am honored to inherit the exceptional legacy left by John,” Hill said. “My focus is on maintaining robust financial oversight and cultivating innovation to meet our customers’ evolving needs. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, we aim to chart new avenues of growth and uphold our status as the industry leader.”

Before joining Navitas, Hill held executive positions at CIT, Dell Financial Services and Société Générale Equipment Finance.
