Mark Rubino was recently promoted to general manager for the South Bay Auto Auction (SBAA) Stockton location. The facility recently held its grand opening on Jan. 1, 2013, and held its first live auction on Feb. 6.
Rubino started with SBAA in 2001, but has known of and used the auction to remarket repossessions for the companies he has worked for since 1993. He started at SBAA by creating and managing the marketing department, before being promoted to senior vice president in 2010.
“My goal in Stockton is to use my knowledge and experience in the automotive finance and auction industries to build a successful team, which is customer-service oriented and motivated to increase inventory and maximize sales results,” Rubino said. “Our biggest challenge is to consistently increase dealer attendance, franchised dealer consignment vehicles, and overall vehicle inventory week-after-week, to fill the 26-acre lot.”
The campus is located on 26 acres and consists of a main building with more than 100,000 sq.-ft. of space. SBAA is a full-service, all indoor, dealer-only auction featuring:
- SBAA fleet of transport trucks and a national transportation network.
- State-of-the-art onsite mechanical and reconditioning equipment and facilities.
- A team of trained and certified vehicle inspectors for accurate vehicle reports.
- An experienced team of remarketing professionals to help maximize sale results.
The auctions Specialty Vehicle Sales consist of RVs, boats, jet skis, and other specialty units, and will be held twice monthly on the second and last Wednesday of the month.
