TD Auto Finance Welcomes Christopher Nabeta: Steering Toward a New Era in OEM Sales and Strategy

TD Auto Finance, a pivotal division of TD Bank, recently made a strategic addition to its team by appointing Christopher Nabeta as the Director of OEM Sales and Strategy for Canada. Nabeta, who assumed his new role in February after dedicating much of 2023 to leading Accelerate Auto and concluding his tenure at Volvo Cars Canada, is tasked with fostering relationships and expanding the company’s influence in the OEM sector.

Prior to joining TD Auto Finance, Nabeta served as the head of commercial sales at Volvo Cars Canada. His move to TD was sparked by an internal recruiter in January 2023, leading to substantive discussions with the executive team at TD Auto Finance about the potential impact and opportunities within the organization. Nabeta’s recruitment process highlighted the importance of mutual fit and the alignment of organizational and individual goals, culminating in a shared vision for future success.

At the forefront of Nabeta’s agenda is the expansion of TD Auto Finance’s footprint in the OEM space, a venture that requires a deep dive into auto finance—a new facet for Nabeta, despite his extensive experience in OEM and dealership operations. Emphasizing the significance of integrating oneself into the organizational fabric, Nabeta is committed to leveraging his industry connections to bolster TD Auto Finance’s network and underscore its customer-centric approach.

Nabeta’s leadership style is rooted in humility and servant leadership, focusing on understanding and delivering effective solutions for OEMs, dealers, and their customers alike. Amidst a Canadian auto market experiencing significant growth and evolution, including the aftermath of the pandemic and changing consumer demands, Nabeta underscores the necessity of staying attuned to market dynamics, OEM retail models, and customer behaviors to ensure TD’s continued relevance and agility.

The automotive industry’s ongoing transformation, particularly with the advent of connected vehicles and the imperative for digital and physical infrastructure enhancements, positions artificial intelligence (AI) as a critical tool for future-proofing auto finance operations. Nabeta views AI as an essential asset for enhancing customer service and operational efficiency, reinforcing TD Auto Finance’s role as a technological innovator in the sector, as demonstrated by initiatives like the TD Wheels app and partnerships for prequalification processes.

In addition to his responsibilities at TD Auto Finance, Nabeta remains actively involved with Accelerate Auto, a non-profit aimed at bolstering Black representation and diversity within the automotive industry. Through scalable programming, partnerships, and initiatives like mentorship and access-to-work programs, Nabeta and Accelerate Auto strive to make substantive contributions to community development and industry inclusivity.
