This week, GM Financial named five regional 2021 Auction of the Year winners and a winner of Most Valuable Auction of the Year, which are part of the consignor’s annual nationwide auction of excellence program recognizing the highest-performing auction locations in 2021.
GM Financial said recipients were selected after reviewing each of the company’s 50 auctions’ performance in retention, operational metrics, presale activities and overall auction operations.
The regional auction of the year winners included:
—Manheim Texas Hobby, Houston
—ADESA Phoenix, Chandler, Ariz.
—Manheim Chicago, Matteson, Ill.
—Manheim Pennsylvania, Manheim, Pa.
—Manheim Orlando, Ocoee, Fla.
“In 2021, the auctions we work with navigated many obstacles and went to great lengths to help GM Financial and our purchasing dealers achieve success in a very challenging year,” GM Financial senior vice president of remarketing solutions Bob Winn said in a news release.
With the influx in used-car prices, new-inventory challenges due to microchip shortages and ongoing restrictions from the pandemic, these top performers prioritized buyer safety and kept our vehicle sales strong. Congratulations to these top auctions of the year,” Winn continued.
And the Most Valuable Auction of the Year went to Manheim Pennsylvania.
“The entire Manheim Pennsylvania team is humbled and honored to have our location named as GM Financial’s Most Valuable Auction for a third consecutive year,” Manheim Pennsylvania vice president and general manager Joey Hughes said in the news release from GM Financial.
“I’m so proud of our team for their continued commitment to and focus on providing exceptional customer service and results. We look forward to continuing to work closely with GM Financial and building on their success for many years to come,” Hughes went on to say.
