Craig Harter

Head of Indirect Lending
Fifth Third Bank

My entire career has been in the automotive finance business.  It began over 30 years ago as an F&I Mgr for a dealer group in Park Ridge, Il.  I started my banking career as a DDR with Bank One, now Chase, back in 1992.  I also did some underwriting, collections and funding.  I was the Midwest Regional Sales Manager for Bank One until 2004 when I left to take a similar role with Fifth/Third Bank.  I became the National Sales Manager for Citizens Bank in 2010.  After five years of commuting from Chicago to Providence, I decided to take on the role of Head of Indirect Lending for BMO Harris Bank before finally returning to Fifth/Third bank in November of 2021 to take over for the retiring Peter Kidd. 


On a personal note, I have lived in the Chicago area for over 36 years with my wife, Sara, and two, now adult, children.
