Portfolio Promotes Childers to Managing Director

Portfolio has promoted 21-year industry veteran Cliff Childers to the position of managing director.

Portfolio announced the promotion of Cliff Childers to the position of managing director, effective immediately. The 21-year industry veteran leads a national sales team driving reinsurance and F&I success for auto, RV and powersports dealers with a focus on innovation, sales and results.

“Anyone who has worked with or even spent a few moments with Cliff knows he is the genuine article — smart, savvy and passionate about helping agents and dealers achieve their goals,” said Portfolio Chief Sales Officer David Neuenschwander. “As a managing director, he joins a select group of sales leaders dedicated to driving success for Portfolio and our valued partners.”

Childers began his career with Bridgestone/Firestone, then served as an account executive with Zurich before joining National Automotive Experts and NWAN, a Strongsville, Ohio-based provider and administrator, in 2012. His tenure included four years leading that company’s business development team as national sales manager before NAE/NWAN was acquired by Portfolio.

“Very rarely are two companies able to come together and deliver best-of-both-worlds services and support to agents and dealers. Our partners have access to the best reinsurance platform in the industry,” Childers said. “I am honored to be in a position to drive unprecedented success for our partners and excited to get to work.”

A graduate of the University of Kansas, where he earned a BA in human biology with a minor in Spanish, Childers resides in Shawnee, Kansas, with wife Brittany and daughters Cora and Chloe.
