CarFinance is headed by auto-lending industry veteran Jim Landy, who started the company in 2011. Landy founded subprime auto finance firm Triad Financial Corp. in Huntington Beach in 1989, and served as chief executive until 2005.

CarFinance has other offices in Fort Worth and 225 employees overall.
