David Shevsky was named chief operating officer of auto finance in the spring of 2018. In this newly-created role, Shevsky oversees consumer risk and operations, commercial risk and credit administration, collections and loss mitigation activities, and business systems.
Previously, Shevsky was chief risk officer for Ally since 2015, and had responsibility for the company's independent risk management function.
Shevsky joined Ally Financial in 1986 with a series of positions supporting the auto finance operation from a credit risk perspective. During his career, he supported both the domestic and international auto finance operations. In 2004, he became a senior vice president of enterprise risk for the company. When the company became a stand-alone company in 2006, he played a key role in establishing a more robust risk management function, and when Ally became a bank holding company in 2008, he was responsible for establishing a loan review function, which he did until becoming the chief risk officer for Ally Bank in 2011.
Prior to joining Ally, Shevsky served in the United States Air Force from 1979 until 1984. Shevsky holds a bachelor's degree from Wayne State University and a master's degree from Walsh College.
