ADESA has announced new leadership for its ADESA Mobile Auctions and ADESA UVA divisions.
Matt Laughridge, who has been in the remarketing industry for more than 20 years, will take the helm as general manager of ADESA Mobile Auctions. Meanwhile, Sawyer Walker has been promoted to national manager of ADESA UVA, the company's program of dealer-to-dealer sales.
Laughridge joined the industry in 1999, and through the years has gained experience in both auction management and sales roles. Most recently, he served as director of mobile auction sales and operations at Manheim.
Walker most recently served as regional manager of ADESA UVA. Prior to working with ADESA, Walker managed the UVA program for Brasher's Auto Auctions until ADESA purchased the auction group in 2016.
ADESA is expanding UVA sales with an additional bi-weekly UVA sale at ADESA Las Vegas and a weekly UVA sale at ADESA Dallas expected to launch summer 2019, according to the company.
