America’s Auto Auction has named its new fleet/lease manager for its facility location in Virginia Beach, Va., the auction company said.
Amanda Kennedy was named to assume the new role as the auction welcomes customers back for live sales and readies for an upswing in fleet and lease volumes following the slowdown springing from the industry restrictions put in place to battle COVID-19.
Kennedy has worked for America’s Virginia location since 2016, most recently as fleet/lease coordinator.
“She brings tremendous enthusiasm to her work, along with great organizational skills and an outstanding work ethic that shows in everything she does. Her leadership and dedication have made a great impact on those she works with at the auction and on our customers as well. She has a great future in the business, and we are delighted to have her onboard as our fleet/lease manager,” said Jerry Daisey, auction General Manager.
A U.S. Army Reserve Veteran who served in the military police, Kennedy joined the auction as a member of its security team. She quickly showed an affinity for auction operations, and learned the business from the ground up, handling responsibilities ranging from check-in, inventory and running lane control on sale day, to writing condition reports, managing the auction’s GSA account, and assisting commercial customers as a fleet/lease coordinator.
