Steve Culp, Chief Financial Officer, and one of the founding members of Northpoint Commercial Finance, has announced his retirement. While Steve officially retired effective March 1, he remains involved in the business on a transitional basis working with team members to wind down key projects and initiatives. This process should continue through mid-summer.
Steve spent the last five years of his career launching Northpoint and playing a critical role in the company’s growth and success, capping an illustrious career that included 30 years in the industry. Culp previously held leadership roles in finance, treasury, and controllership in the distribution finance businesses at ITT Commercial Finance, Deutsche Financial Services, General Electric and Textron Financial.
Dan Radley, CEO, stated, “Steve’s experience, passion, and hard work was and still is a key component to Northpoint’s launch and success. His focus on teamwork and helping out wherever and whenever needed is indicative of the Northpoint culture. The continuation of that mindset will be a key part of Steve’s Northpoint legacy. He will be greatly missed as a dedicated member of our team.”
“After being in the industry so long, it has been a great experience to start a new business along with the colleagues I have known for so many years. Northpoint has grown by adding experienced and talented members to our team, and being a part of that growth has been both rewarding and fun.” Said Culp. “Northpoint’s success is due to its employees and the success of the dealers and manufacturers that we serve; and my role at Northpoint has been the best of my career because I have seen Northpoint become the great organization that it is today.”
Once his responsibilities have officially concluded Steve looks forward to spending more time at the beach with his wife Mary, children and grandchildren and traveling extensively.
