" 'As we embarked on our journey to evolve the CIT brand, we set out to establish a simple and cohesive position that reflected a newly-transformed company and a diverse customer base,' said CIT Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Gina Proia. ‘Whether a customer comes to us for business financing, commercial lending or personal savings, we want them to know that their goals are our goals. The brand work brings this mission to the forefront.’
"As part of the brand initiative, CIT has also launched a new website that includes an integrated view of its products and solutions for personal savers, small and mid-sized business owners and commercial clients seeking financing. In addition, the CIT Direct Capital brand will transition to become simply CIT as the company creates a more simplified market approach in its Business Capital division."
