Bill Williams Jr., co- owner and president of Flint Auto Auction, has been elected to serve a two-year term on the Board of Directors for ServNet Auctions. He serves on the Board with Brad Sturgeon (DAA of the Rockies / DAA of the Southwest); Dave Angelicchio (Pittsburgh Auto Auction); Ben Brasher (Brasher's Auctions), R. Charles Nichols (BSC America) - Chairman of the Board; Patty Stanley (Carolina Auto Auction / Indiana Auto Auction) - President; and Kevin Brown (Missouri Auto Auction) - Vice President/Treasurer.
"Since joining ServNet in 1992, Flint Auto Auction's association with ServNet has been an extremely positive one," said Williams. "Not only have I personally benefited by my association with the other ServNet auction owners, but our auction has grown and improved by virtual of ServNet's marketing efforts, industry involvement and the tremendous innovations in technology that ServNet has helped to develop. I'm eager to do my part in continuing ServNet's achievements working in conjunction with ServNet's executive staff and the other members of the board."
"As ServNet auction owners, we are part of a tradition of commitment and service that has shaped our industry from the beginning," explained Williams. "ServNet auctions continue to thrive, building on the foundations laid by those who came before us, and enhanced as the next generation comes on board, bringing a new level of vision and vitality to the most successful auctions in the country."
Williams himself is the third generation of his family to operate the Flint Auto Auction. The facility was founded in 1953 by Bill's grandfather, Ray Williams, whose sons, Bill Williams, Sr. and Jim Williams, were active in the business for many years. Bill took over the reigns as the auction's general manager in 1990, and today handles responsibilities as the company president, in tandem with his cousin, John Luce, who serves as vice president.
"We appreciate Bill's many contributions to ServNet over the years, and are thrilled that he has opened the newest chapter in service to the organization as a member of the Board of Directors," said Patty Stanley, noting that this is a return to ServNet's board for Williams, who also served as ServNet's President for the 1999-2000 term. "His leadership, insight and experience in the industry will be a tremendous asset to all of us as we address the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."
