The Auto Finance Innovation speaker roster has expanded with the addition of a few contemporary — and innovative — executives from General Motors Co., Honcker, Thought Works, and uQuote — to name just a few.
Nathan Hecht, chief executive of the multi-lender, mobile financing app Honcker; and Roy Mathew, chief executive of the auto finance Facebook chatbot uQuote; will sit in on a panel about the need for speed in the mobile ecosystem.
Miranda Hill, director of commerce strategy at the software disruption company Thought Works; Stephen London, senior manager of business development and global connected consumers at General Motors Co.; Todd Nelson, business development officer at Lightstream; and Matt Traylen, head of financial services at Faraday Future, will discuss how to foster a culture of innovation within a company.
Honker’s Hecht spoke at last year’s inaugural Auto Finance Innovation event about the launch of Honcker and why the future of car buying is in mobile.
“When you click the lease button on Honcker you have already been given a final price based on your credit, on a specific vehicle that you’re ordering, with add-ons and extras, like the car insurance and the extended warranties, already baked into the price,” Hecht previously told AFN. “It’s a completed transaction, which is different from what’s out there today, which is essentially a request for quote.”
