FORT WORTH, Texas -- AmeriCredit Corp. has named Howard Cobham its senior vice president of dealer services for Canada. Cobham will lead the company's plan to resume its auto finance business in Canada.
AmeriCredit curtailed its Canadian operations in 2003 as part of a company downsizing.
The Canadian business is part of AmeriCredit's plan to increase its new-loan business by as much as 15 percent a year. The company says it expects to start business in Canada in the first half of 2006.
