America’s Group, which includes America’s Auto Auction and AXLE Funding, announced Nov. 13 that veteran remarketing industry leader Laura Taylor will return as general manager of America’s Charleston and America’s Savannah auctions, while Bill McCready will take on duties as regional vice president of the Southeast.
McCready, who helmed both America’s Charleston and Savannah auctions when Taylor was named senior regional vice president, will now be regional vice president of the South, as Taylor takes over as general manager of both auctions.
“Laura has been an important part of the expansion and development of America’s Group, just as she has been a dynamic force in our industry,” said Chuck Tapp, CEO of America’s Group, in a news release. “Bill’s transition to regional VP will be a smooth adjustment, as Bill and Laura have worked together for so many years.”
Taylor added, “Helping America’s Auto Auctions renovate and grow over the past few years has been an exciting time in my life. I have loved the work and my involvement with the accomplishment our auctions have achieved. And now I am happy to be returning to my home auction, and to be at home again with my beautiful granddaughters. I have a lot of time to make up with them, and a great desire to get back to my auction roots.”
