Buyer spotlight: SCUSA’s James Harris

James HarrisAt Santander Consumer USA, we believe in teamwork. Our credit buyers are a vital part of the team working to get your deals approved and funded quickly.  The combination of our area sales managers and credit buyers make for a financing offense that few other banks can compete with.

Meet one of our top players in the buying game, James Harris.

Hometown: Angleton, TX

Tenure at Santander: 8 years

Siblings: Two sisters, Vera and Diane; one brother, Joel

Favorite food: Oxtail with cabbage. Growing up in the U.S. Virgin Islands of St. Thomas, my grandmother made the best Caribbean-style oxtail-with-cabbage cuisine for Sunday dinners. Awesome!

Favorite movie: The Incredible Hulk. Who doesn’t like power? The fact that he is green is a small setback.

Music on his playlist: I’m pretty eclectic when it comes to music. So you’d find Bob Marley, UGK, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Usher on my playlist.

Bucket list vacation: Australia. I would love to venture across the Pacific to visit the The Great Barrier Reef.  I would also like to see the beautiful beaches and lush jungles of the region.

Favorite pastime: Computer gaming. Gaming provides the latest in entertainment and fun. The best part of being a gamer is the camaraderie and connectedness. Just like with credit buying, the main thing that drives me is teamwork online; if you have a good team you can achieve great accomplishments.

Work philosophy: Everyday, seize opportunity and strive for excellence. If you do that, you will be successful.
