“I am thrilled to join the staff at Lynnway Auto Auction and am happy to be back in the auction world,” said Bennett. “Founders Jim Lamb, George Russo, and Richie Delfino lead a thriving auction facility that is an indispensible resource for used car remarketing in the Northeast.  I am excited to work with them and the members of their auction team to continue building their influence in the marketplace.”

Lynnway Auto Auction was founded in 1997 by former auctioneers Jim Lamb and George Russo and a VP of Operations, Richie Delfino, all with more than 30 years experience in vehicle auction remarketing. The auction quickly gained a reputation for superior facility management, transportation management, reconditioning service, mechanical and body repairs, on-site floor planning, and first-rate customer service. Located in North Bellerica, Mass., the auction’s high-tech, 58-acre, 8-lane facility is one of the largest in the region. The auction welcomes dealers from throughout the region to a sale every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.
