ADESA, a business unit of KAR Auction Services, announced changes to its auction management teams at two locations. Ryan Edwards, previously the general manager of ADESA Atlanta, will now serve as general manager of ADESA Phoenix, and Mark Brunn will join the team at ADESA Atlanta as general manager.
“Ryan has been dedicated to making ADESA Atlanta an award-winning auction during the last seven years,” said ADESA President and CEO Stéphane St-Hilaire. “His experience will be a valuable asset in leading the team at our high-performing location in Phoenix.”
Edwards joined ADESA in 2007 as general manager of ADESA Atlanta. Through his leadership, the auction has been honored with numerous performance awards from across the industry. Prior to joining ADESA, Edwards spent 10 years with Manheim auctions throughout the country.
Brunn joins ADESA with more than 26 years of experience in the auto remarketing industry, most recently as vice president of operations for Manheim Total Resource Auctions.
“Mark brings a wide range of industry experience with him,” said Mike Caggiano, executive vice president, eastern region, for ADESA. “We’re excited to have him on the ADESA team to continue the success and further the growth we’ve had in the Atlanta marketplace.”
Brunn joined the auto remarketing industry in 1988, first as a senior accountant for the Manheim organization. He then moved into auction management in a handful of auction locations from California to Georgia, growing each operation. While with Manheim, he spent a decade as vice president of operations, first for auction-related business services and then for the international marketplace. Brunn has a bachelor’s degree from Villanova University and is a certified public accountant.
