CARMEL, IN — ADESA announced that ADESA Sacramento was awarded the 2008 Auction of the Year by Automotive Resources International (ARI). ADESA Sacramento General Manager Chris McGinness accepted the award from ARI’s Dave Seher, remarketing specialist.

“We are honored to receive such a prestigious award from ARI. They have been a great business partner for us — Dave Seher and the entire ARI staff are truly a pleasure to do business with,” said McGinness. “At a time when there are so many negative things going on in the automotive industry, it is refreshing to receive an award such as this.”

ADESA Sacramento won this award above all other auctions in the region based on the highest financial retention rate for ARI vehicles sold, best customer service and overall operational efficiencies during ARI sales.

ARI, a global fleet solution provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, has been rewarding auctions for outstanding performance and top vehicle remarketing results for the past 10 years as part of its quality assurance program.

Seher added, “We take seriously the relationships with our auctions and try to develop and exceed to be partners in excellence for our customers and dealers. I am here today at ADESA Sacramento because together we achieved our goal and they reciprocated back the same level of commitment to our account.”
