Executive Sourcebook



The CIT Executive Sourcebook highlights our executives’ current role and responsibilities, offers a summary of their prior work experience and details their areas of expertise. This portal serves as a source for members of the media to identify industry experts who can address topics ranging from corporate financing, small business and middle market lending, industry-specific financing trends, retail financing, factoring, transportation and equipment leasing, online and retail banking and most financing topics in between. 

Members of the media that would like to arrange an interview with one of CIT’s executives can contact Curt Ritter, Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications, at curt.ritter@cit.com.
