Whann Technology Group announced that Founder Keith Whann will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Company and has stepped down from his duties as Chief Executive Officer of Columbus Fair Auction.
“Relinquishing the reins is always difficult, especially when you care so deeply about your employees and your customers. I will remember my time at CFAA fondly and miss the relationships that have developed over the years,” Whann said.
He has been part of the CFAA team since 1987, serving the past 10 years as CEO and an owner of the business. While he will remain an owner in the short term, he will not be involved with business
Whann continued, “As much as I enjoy the auction lanes (we all know there is nothing else on earth like an auction on sale day), I really love the technology side of our industry. We are very fortunate for the unique
opportunities that currently exist for WTG. I see technology continuing to be at the forefront of our industry and being a disruptive force in both the wholesale and retail automotive sectors and being able to devote full time to WTG will allow us to play a part in all of this."
