The International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA) announced that it has signed a four-year agreement with the Independent Auction Group (IAG). The IAG is now the lead sponsor of the IARA’s Summer Roundtable, as well as the Alliance’s website. The first of these sponsored events takes place later this summer at the Downtown Fort Worth Hilton on August 18-19.  

IARA President Levi McCoy stated, “We are absolutely pleased to have the Independent Auction Group as our new partners. The Independent Auction Group is a diverse and growing component of the remarketing industry. IAG auctions are members of the National Auto Auction Association (NAAA) and represent everything that is great about IARA’s working partnership with NAAA.”

IARA Executive Director Tony Long added, “This partnership brings IARA a long-term stability to our sponsorship program and will raise the bar of quality at our meetings. In turn, our agreement provides improved membership opportunities for IAG members and increased opportunities for dialogue with consignors, service providers, and other key players within the remarketing industry.”
