AGORA founder and CEO Steve Burke commented, “Jim is an experienced automotive finance leader with over 30 years of success building great organizations.

AGORA was created in response to the many friction points and inefficiencies that exist in the manner that auto loan portfolios currently trade – namely poor and inconsistent data, lack of transparency from the brokers that previously dominated the market and heightened regulatory concerns over the unsecured transmission of personal consumer data.
