GrooveCar Spotlight: Robert O’Hara

Robert O’Hara, the Director of Credit Union Relations, joined the GrooveCar family in 2011. Day-to-day, he oversees the credit union clients and revenue streams of GrooveCar and GrooveCar Direct, working to establish new credit union business relationships for the brands while maintaining relationships with key management personnel at each credit union. Additionally, Robert is responsible for developing, implementing, and tracking revenue and utilization targets for our credit union clients.
