2017 Auctions of the Year awarded

Published March 2018

GM Financial named five regional 2017 Auction of the Year winners and a Most Valuable Auction of the Year winner. These prestigious awards are part of GM Financial’s annual nationwide Auction of Excellence program, which recognizes the highest performing auction locations. Winners were announced at the annual Conference of Auto Remarketing, which was held March 6-7 in Las Vegas.

“We rely on these auctions to support GM Financial’s objectives; efficiently manage the increasing volume of vehicles, exceed operation expectations and provide an exceptional buyer experience,” said Brad Bollman, Senior Vice President of Remarketing Solutions, North American Operations. “These six auctions performed exceptionally by serving as an extension of GM Financial, ensuring quality inventory is available to dealers for purchase each week.”

Recipients were selected after reviewing each of the company’s 46 auction partners’ performance in retention, operational metrics, presale activities and overall auction operations.

“We have worked with GM Financial for many years, and we tremendously value our strong, trusted and collaborative relationship,” said Paul Lips, ADESA Chief Commercial Officer. “Our customers are our highest priority. So we are honored to be recognized, and we look forward to delivering GM Financial the next generation of remarketing solutions.”
