As auction operations embrace new technologies and ways to sell and move cars, the managers in all aspects of the business will gain more options in handling a new environment.
A session at the Conference of Automotive Remarketing, “Role Shifts for Auction Managers,” will explore how auctions can better compete and operate in an industry that is consolidating and diversifying its business models.
Moderated by Julie Warpool, the COO of Auction Edge Inc., the session will offer insights from panelists Jim Mumford, Dealers Auto Auction of the Southwest, Trish Short, Akron Auto Auction, David Andrews, City Enterprises, and Trevor Ottley, Mid-Kansas Auto Auction.
