Vice President Reinsurance / Product Development
Since he graduated with an Electrical Engineering degree in 1989 Wade started his career as a management consultant with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) in New York and Sweden. After receiving an M.B.A. from New York University's Stern School of Business in Management, Marketing, and International Business in 1997, Wade continued his consulting career with Ernst & Young in Los Angeles before ultimately starting off on his own. Through his consulting career Wade provided strategic management, operations, and custom information systems development and support services in the finance, manufacturing, retail, and media & entertainment industries, working with companies including TCW Group, SegaSoft, Warner Bros. Entertainment, Westvaco, ICA Handlarnas Förbund, and Mercantile Stores.
Wade discovered the automotive industry by fortunate happenstance in 2003 when he and his family decided to move from the New York area to New Mexico for a lifestyle change and he got his first "real job". Since then Wade has been enjoying developing and managing business operations and information systems for automotive F&I and reinsurance products, as well as vehicle inventory management & marketing programs, working with companies such as SouthwestRe, Western General, Protective Life, AAA, CUDL, Warrantech and Dealer.com.
Wade joined IBG in 2014. He truly loves being of service to our client dealers, using his extensive and varied business experience to help bring superior F&I products and solutions to their F&I departments, and working to ensure maximum profitability while creating new wealth for our dealers.
