RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. Finance Express, a provider of Web-based financial services and technology for independent dealers, has added E&S Funding LLC to its lender platform.

"We are always looking for more quality lenders to help enhance our lender portal. We feel that the more lenders that dealers have available to them, the more opportunity they have to help every customer that walks through their door," says David Huber, president of Finance Express.

E&S Funding LLC is an independent purchaser, servicer and seller of vehicle installment sales contracts originated by franchised and independent dealers.

"After dealing primarily in the franchise dealer environment, I am extremely happy to join the Finance Express platform to assist independent dealers in getting deals bought that they might not be getting done," stated Frank Mercer, CEO of E&S Funding. "Dealers can rely on our partnership and expertise. We provide a funding solution that generates revenue with point-of-sale contract purchases and loan portfolio sale strategies that contribute to ongoing dealer liquidity."
