Harris Marine Financing, a Stevensville, Maryland-based company specializing in providing boat dealers throughout the Mid-Atlantic with recreational marine finance placement, is pleased to announce a territorial expansion that will make Harris’ services available to dealers and consumers from Maine to Florida.
“With the boating business starting to see signs of post-recession sales growth, now is the time for dealers to get their consumer financing business in order,” says Robin Harris, CEO of Harris Marine Financing. “That’s why Harris Marine Financing is expanding its operations. In today’s marketplace, the ability to offer prospective boat owners a seamless boat financing process is a huge advantage. We see an opportunity to contribute to industry growth by helping more dealers thrive.”
As part of that expansion, Harris has hired 2 new employees to carry out the company’s mission in its new territory. They have completed in-house training designed to prepare them to uphold Harris’ reputation for providing prompt, accurate and compliant finance services to dealers and their clients, and they are now ready to serve the company’s expanded client base.
“We know how important it is that we provide excellent customer service to our dealers’ customers,” adds Harris. “In the marine finance sector, that means close attention to every detail and strict adherence to financial regulations that protect today’s consumers.”
