CARY, N.C. -

In what we’re proud to call an annual tradition, Auto Remarketing publishes a special issue to recognize the leading women of the remarketing and used-car business: our Women in Remarketing issue. 

Each of the leaders honored in our Women in Remarketing program takes on different responsibilities within the industry, and the companies they represent encompass a diverse cross-section of the used-car market. Each has a unique and inspiring story to tell, both within and beyond the business world.

We would like to thank everyone who sent in Women in Remarketing nominations this year. While there are many more women  worthy of recognition, we could not spotlight all the nominees, as we are only able to recognize a select few each year.

But stay tuned to Auto Remarketing e-newsletters, as we will conduct another call for nominations early next year.

Below are this year's honorees, in alphabetical order by last name:

  • Rachel Ballard, Capital City Auto Auction
