Leadership Team
Brian MacInnis
Chief Executive Officer

As Symmetry’s CEO, Brian’s inspiration drives the same people-first culture that has led to the success of his previous businesses. In partnership with his leadership team, Brian’s vision is achieved through passionate leadership, veteran experience with lending businesses large and small, and a contagious entrepreneurial spirit.

Brian began his finance and lender career with Western Financial Savings (WFS) in southern California, where he became EVP of the auto finance division that was built under his leadership. Eventually selling to larger banks, this same finance operation is now owned and managed by Wells Fargo. After 17 years with WFS, Brian founded Onyx Acceptance Corp, another successful finance company that became a public company with an IPO in just 24 months of existence. Today, this business is owned and managed by Capital One.

Most recently, Brian had the good fortune of working with many of the same team members that now lead Symmetry Lending. As the co-founder of Gateway One Lending & Finance, Brian built the auto finance business that later sold to TCF Bank in 2011. Forming Gateway in 2007 and leading it through the great economic recession was a true test to Brian’s leadership, perseverance, and disciplined business strategy. While at TCF, Brian’s expertise was also utilized in other verticals, including a role as EVP, National Mortgage Lending, where he introduced the bank to a new capital markets strategy of building and servicing loan portfolios for other institutions.

Brian considers his greatest success to be the family-like culture that is the backbone of Symmetry’s employees and business partners.
