Entrepreneur Becky Catino studied retailing at Miami University, where she received a bachelor of science. She later leveraged her skills to launch Security National Automotive Acceptance Corporation with her husband, Ted Catino.
The couple began their company conservatively with limited financial backing from an equity partner. Mrs. Catino focused on the military market from the company’s California office. Following a few years, she was able to relocate to Ohio and continue operations from the company’s Cincinnati office.
Mrs. Catino and her company garnered support from financial institutions, such as Bank One and Firstar. Focused on company culture, she and her husband developed a work environment that promoted work-life balance. This approach positively impacted employee loyalty as well as customer and dealer satisfaction. As a result, her company was recognized in 2011 as one of the fastest growing indirect lenders in the automotive industry.
Outside of her career, Becky Catino enjoys supporting her community. She contributes to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and serves as the organization’s board chair. In addition, she sits on the board of trustees of Ursuline Academy Foundation.
