Marguerite has worked in the auto and automotive finance industry for 30 years allowing her to understand its strengths, weaknesses and, most importantly, opportunities. She devotes much of her time to sharing her expertise and connections. Her company provides insights on where innovative product and service solutions can be implemented to improve business processes and shareholder value.

Marguerite is a founder of the Women’s Leadership Council and has helped manage it since its inception.

We asked Margeurite what advice she’d give to her younger self, knowing what she knows now.

Without overthinking it, consider each fork in the road as an opportunity and a pivotal moment.
