HFA Announces Newest Diamond Sponsor Tidewater Finance Company
The Virginia Beach, Va.-based, privately owned consumer finance company strives to provide credit opportunities to consumers who may have experienced financial difficulties in the past, but currently demonstrate the initiative and ability to establish positive payment patterns. Tidewater focuses on near-prime and non-prime applicants, bringing value to its retail partners by helping them capture sales they’d otherwise lose.
“Our exciting new partnership with HFA will give its members access to a company with 25 years of experience approving credit-challenged customers,” said David Minero, Tidewater’s national sales manager.
Tidewater’s sponsorship will help the HFA provide more regional events, which provide great networking and education opportunities for retailers and other members of the industry. Most recently Tidewater participated in HFA’s Colorado Rockies event in this past July.
“We had members as far away as New Mexico and Wyoming gather for a night of baseball and networking,” said HFA’s executive vice president, Mary Frye. “This is our third year hosting the Rockies event and as always it was a fun and worthwhile time. We couldn’t provide these types of events without our sponsors.”
