LAKE FOREST, Calif. — Portfolio has appointed Jim Cunha as a managing director for sales and agent development. Cunha brings a wealth of experience to the role, having served as an F&I director, dealership principal, agency principal, platform president and reinsurance specialist.

“I am excited to expand my 14 years of creating wealth for our dealer partners through Portfolio’s industry-leading platform for the benefit of our dealer and agent partners and their families,” Cunha said.
