Rep. Mark Takano toured the Manheim Riverside Auction Facility as the 100th business for his “100 Business” tour, which began last year. Manheim Riverside was established in 1988 and is a wholesale vehicle auction operation.
Takano met with Scott Hurst, market vice president for Manheim’s Southern California Market, Christopher Brown, general manager for Manheim Riverside, and Karyn Wrye, senior director of Manheim’s government affairs.
"The Inland Empire has been hit particularly hard during The Great Recession, with the unemployment rate peaking at 15 percent and one in every fourteen homes in the region being foreclosed on. With that said, fixing our local economy is a top priority of mine. This tour allowed me to talk directly with the business owners and their employees and learn what Congress can do to accelerate the recovery," Takano said.
“Manheim Riverside was honored to host Congressman Takano,” said Christopher Brown, the general manager at Manheim Riverside. “We are excited that the congressman selected Manheim Riverside as the final stop of his ‘100 business’ tour.”
