ServNet has named Bruce Beam, general manager of Dealers Auto Auction of Oklahoma City, as its new president.
Beam will serve in the position for the next two years. He succeeds Eric Autenrieth, the organization’s prior president. Autenrieth will now serve as chairman of the board.
Beam stated that his goal is to facilitate the transition in ServNet’s executive leadership following Pierre Pon’s decision to step down as CEO at the end of this year. Beam will work with John Brasher and Robert Sullivan who will take over as executive director and administrative director.
Beam also aims to place a stronger focus on the dealer community during his tenure as ServNet’s president.
"Every week thousands of dealers buy vehicles at ServNet auctions," said Beam. "I want to make sure that those customers realize how important they are to us, and to know that when they buy a vehicle from a ServNet auction, they have the benefit of our entire network of auctions."
The ServNet Auction Group is a network of independently owned wholesale auto auctions operating in the U.S. The group has operated for more than 30 years.
