Manheim has named Peter Grupposo as vice president of dealer sales and Holly Capps as vice president of inventory solutions commercial and wholesale sales, according to a company announcement.
In his new position, Grupposo’s will lead a team of client executives responsible for developing and managing comprehensive inventory solutions for dealer clients.
“Pete’s thought leadership and deep industry experience, coupled with his keen ability to assess industry trends and market dynamics, make him the ideal choice to lead our Dealer Sales team,” said Tim McKinley, senior vice president of sales for Manheim.
Since joining the Manheim organization in 2014, Grupposo has held a number of leadership roles. Most recently, Grupposo served as Manheim’s vice president of inventory solutions commercial and wholesale sales — the role Capps will be assuming. Before that, in 2013, Grupposo was named vice president of operations and business development for NextGear Capital.
In Capps’ new role, she will lead a team responsible for maintaining and exploring new revenue and market share growth opportunities for Manheim’s commercial clients. Prior to this appointment, Capps worked at Cox Media as group vice president responsible for the leadership and development of sales strategies for the advertising division of Cox Communications, Inc. Her career with Cox Media has spanned approximately 20 years, and during that time, she has worked closely with Cox Media’s automotive dealer and manufacturer clients.
“Holly’s a proven leader with in-depth knowledge of the industry’s changing market conditions as well as the demands facing dealers and manufacturers today,” said McKinley. “I’m confident that she will continue to evolve our sales strategies to further help our commercial clients thrive in today’s marketplace.”
Both will report to Tim McKinley, senior vice president of sales for Manheim. They will officially begin their new roles on June 1, 2017.
