Auction Management Solutions just added the largest independent auction in Nevada to its client roster.
According to an announcement on Thursday, Dealers Auto Auction of Las Vegas, (DAALV), has partnered with AMS for business development and other projects.
Founded in 2006, by Dan Thomas and Russ Norrish, the auction has grown to a 350-unit weekly sale with 200 to 250 attendees in the lanes, with additional online buyers utilizing the Simulcast platform.
The auction offers a full suite of services including transportation, reconditioning, and mechanical services. Thomas made the move to auction owner after nearly four decades in the industry, including leadership roles such as general manager and regional area manager with Manheim.
Norrish, an industry veteran, also held various leadership roles within the Manheim organization.
AMS president Tom Stewart said in a news release, “The wealth of experience among the senior leadership at Dealers Auto Auction of Las Vegas is impressive to see in an independent auction. They have surrounded themselves with employees that are knowledgeable about the industry and are dedicated to a high-level of customer service and customer satisfaction.”
DAALV, a National Auto Auction Association member, already has Lobel Financial, Enterprise, Avis and Honda Financial Services, among its commercial accounts.
“Las Vegas is a competitive market and we know that constant improvement requires keen insight into a rapidly changing marketplace,” Thomas said. “Knowing that AMS has assembled a team of experts that bring with them long-term relationships with vendors and consignors was a key factor in partnership”
Stewart pledged to deliver to DAALV results like AMS has for its clients that now number sits at two dozen after adding Alliance Auto Auction earlier this year.
“Our plan for DAALV is to build on their already solid foundation, by assisting them in enhancing their commercial accounts to complement their strong dealer consignment sales,” he said.
