Melissa Young, formerly vice president – Leasing at Bank of the Ozarks, will join Taycor Financial as vice president of the Transportation division. Young joins the team with over 12 years of executive management experience in the transportation industry and will bring insight as well as long established relationships to the growing division within the company.
“Melissa is an incredible addition to the Taycor family, and we are honored to provide concierge funding support to her partner vendors and dealerships,” said Michael Hong, president of Taycor. “I have no doubt that with her experience and personality that she will be extraordinarily successful in building up what was already a growing vertical market for the company.”
Young maintains a multi-million dollar book of business by embracing that contributing relationships are built one deal at a time, and augmented by superior customer service.
“My goal is to be an integral part of a dealership’s success by serving as not only the preferred partner in finance, but also an advocate and expert,” said Young. “My focus is to match the finance product of greatest benefit to each customer with a memorable and pleasurable experience. There is no greater satisfaction to me than serving my partners and our customers with tailored options that fit their needs, and I feel that Taycor is the home that can provide the support and programs to make that happen.”
Young will begin representing Taycor immediately and will focus primarily on growing the medium and heavy duty (class 6, 7, and 8) commercial truck and vehicle asset portfolio. Prior to joining Taycor Financial by way of Bank of the Ozarks, Young held management titles for more than 10 years at Murphy-Hoffman (originally Ozark Kenworth) which operates over 100 dealerships across 16 states.
Founded in 1997, Taycor has offices in Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA.
