Ally Financial Appoints Christopher Halmy as CFO

Ally Financial said that Christopher Halmy, its corporate treasurer, will take up a new position as the company’s chief financial officer (CFO) from 8 November. He succeeds current CFO James Mackey, who will leave Ally for ‘another career opportunity’, according to the company.

Bradley Brown, currently the structured funding executive, will become Ally’s corporate treasurer and report to Halmy.

Halmy, a certified public accountant, joined the company – previously known as General Motors Acceptance Corporation (GMAC) – in 2009 as the structured funding executive and was named treasurer in 2011. He assumes responsibility for the oversight of the finance and treasury activities at Ally Financial.

Jeffery Brown, senior vice president of finance and corporate planning, in a statement, said Halmy’s financial experience will enable him to be an effective CFO.

Prior to joining Ally, Halmy held treasury positions at Bank of America, as well as treasury, finance and accounting positions at MBNA America, Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan and Deloitte & Touche.
