30 • August 2015 BRIEFS MANUFACTURERS access to capital and maximize the purchasing powers. Notes Enverto CEO Charles Anderson, "Whether the buyer is an individual or business owner, our goal is to provide them with access to capital so they can get the equipment they need to finish a project or grow their business." Proxibid's Marketplace is backed by its proprietary, bank-quality risk management system, designed specifically for high value trans- actions like commercial trucks, heavy construction equipment, farm machinery and implements, and industrial machinery and equipment. No other online platform offers a sophisticated fraud prevention sys- tem that monitors the Marketplace 24/7 to ensure buyers are safe when making high dollar transactions online, and also guarantees sellers will get paid for their items. "Proxibid's vision is to make purchasing easier and safer than ever," says Proxibid CEO Ryan Downs. "Providing Proxibid equipment buyers with fast and easy access to capital means more business for sellers in our Marketplace as buyers increase spending. We look for- ward to working with Enverto to bring more buyers into the Market- place through this financing program." — Dana Holding Corp. has named James Kamsickas president and chief executive officer effective this month.
