HOUSTON — GSFSGroup announced the hiring of Dianna Dryer as chief financial officer (CFO). The former executive finance director of Ally Financial will lead a team of 11 finance experts and report directly to Steve Amos, company president.

Dryer’s primary role will be to develop new programs and sustainable back-end processes for the company’s dealer clients. She will be based out of the company’s Houston headquarters.

“Dianna’s experience speaks for itself and her strong background fits very well with our plans for future growth,” Amos said. “The addition of Dianna to our team will pay immediate dividends to our dealers and sales team.”

Dryer spent most of her more than 20-year industry career with Ally Financial, where she started as an insurance consultant before climbing the ranks to become CFO of the company’s Asia Pacific Automotive and Latin America Automotive finance operations. She most recently served as executive finance director of international operations.

“I am excited to join the team at GSFSGroup, where I feel there is a great potential for personal and professional growth,” Dryer said. “I really appreciate the company’s values and the high emphasis GSFSGroup places on respect, customer satisfaction, team unity, work quality, integrity, and personal and company-wide leadership.”
