Marlin Announces Retirement of COO, Changes to Senior Management Team

November 07, 2013, 07:05 AM

Marlin Business Services Corp. announced the retirement of George D. Pelose from his position as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company.

Mr. Pelose, who began his Marlin career in 1999 as the Company's General Counsel, commented, "It was a very difficult decision to leave Marlin, but I believe it is the right time for me to step away so I can pursue my outside interests. Since joining Marlin in 1999, I have had the opportunity to work with many talented people to help drive Marlin to what it is today, a leader in the small ticket commercial finance arena. It has been a great privilege to have been part of the Marlin team and the Company's track record of success. I plan on working closely with Dan and his team during the first quarter of 2014 to ensure a smooth transition."

"On behalf of the entire organization, I'd like to take this opportunity to personally thank George for his significant contributions and his 15 years of dedicated service. He has led the Company through change and was instrumental in shaping Marlin and successfully growing the Company. We wish him much success as he pursues other interests," said Daniel P. Dyer, Marlin's Chief Executive Officer.

"In conjunction with George's departure, I am pleased to announce changes to the structure of the senior management team. In connection with the transition, Ed Dietz, currently Marlin's General Counsel, will assume additional management responsibilities. Since joining Marlin in 2010, Ed's has been an integral part of the senior management team and has played important roles in many aspects of the Company's business operations. In the newly created role of Vice President of Administration, Mr. Dietz will add responsibility for Business Operations, Asset Recovery, Human Resources and Insurance to his existing reporting lines, which include the Legal and Compliance functions. The Credit Underwriting and Portfolio Management roles, previously reporting to Mr. Pelose, will now report directly to me," added Mr. Dyer.
