ATLANTA – Susie Avery has been named vice president of customer relations for Online Vehicle Exchange (OVE), a virtual marketplace for dealer-to-dealer and commercial consignor business transactions that occur outside of the physical wholesale auto auctions.

Avery brings more than 15 years of sales, sales management, and online auction experience to the newly created position, most recently serving as national sales director for OVE. She will be responsible for managing several key areas of the organization, including commercial accounts, large accounts, dealer accounts, and field sales, and will report to OVE President and CEO Jim McKnight.

The coordination of relationships among all of OVE’s customers is another area under Avery’s new role, and that successfully connecting those customers will create momentum and positive energy in the upstream and midstream remarketing markets.

Before joining OVE in 2004, Avery was a national sales director for Manheim dealer sales. Prior to that, she held various sales and management positions at, Landmark Newspapers, and car dealerships.
