ADESA has named five new general managers at its auction locations in Las Vegas; Birmingham, Ala.; Little Rock, Ark.; Orlando, Fla.; and Tulsa, Okla. 

The new general managers that have been named include Jay Hinchman at ADESA Las Vegas; Ed Burton at ADESA Birmingham; Chris Beyer at ADESA Little Rock; Todd Hoagey at ADESA Orlando; and Mike DeForest at ADESA Tulsa.

Hinchman has been with ADESA for more than 11 years. He previously served as regional vice president of the ADESA West region, but decided to step down from that position for personal reasons. He previously served as GM of ADESA New Jersey and Las Vegas before his VP position.

Burton joined ADESA in 2013 as general sales manager at ADESA Washington D.C. During his tenure at ADESA, he has been influential in integrating TradeRev as the digital auction leader in the market, according to the company.

Beyer has been with ADESA since January 2018. His first position was assistant general manager of ADESA Little Rock.

He will replace the Angela Sims, who retired from her role of GM at the end of 2018.

Hoagey brings 23 years of auto remarketing experience to his new role. Most recently, he served as CEO of Auction Direct USA Used Vehicle Superstore, a company he founded in 2005.

DeForest brings 20 years of management experience to his role. He previously served as GM of ADESA Mercer.
