Adesa has named Harold Chapman as the new general manager at ADESA Nashville, and he assumed the role effective immediately.



Chapman has been with ADESA for 17 years, previously serving as GM at ADESA Kansas City since 2003, overseeing the auction’s move to a newly built facility in 2009. Under his leadership, ADESA Kansas City was named the General Motors Auction of the Year for both 2011 and 2012, and 2010 Most Improved Auction of the Year from Wells Fargo Auto Finance.

“During his time at ADESA Kansas City, Harold has proven to be a strong leader who motivates his staff to provide the highest levels of service,” said Paul Lips, ADESA's COO. “We’re pleased to have someone with Harold’s industry knowledge, skill set, and successful track record join the team in Nashville.”

Chapman got his start in the auto auction industry as general sales manager with the Frankenthal Group/Louisville Auto and Cincinnati Auto Auction. He joined ADESA Indianapolis in 2000 in outside sales.
