LAS VEGAS — OVE.com announced this morning that it has honored 10 brick and mortar auctions throughout the country with Otto Awards for being outstanding partners.

The awards, which are named for the company's ferret mascot, were presented at a gala awards ceremony yesterday evening at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas during the NAAA Conference of Automotive Remarketing.

The Otto Awards were presented to two separate winners, one Manheim auction and one independent auction, in each of five categories.

The winners include:

Best Overall: Manheim Nashville and Columbus Fair Auto Auction

Most Innovative: Manheim Central Florida and BSC America Bel Air Auto Auction

Most Sold (commercial): Manheim Pennsylvania and Greensboro Auto Auction

Most Sold (dealer): Manheim Pennsylvania and Dyer Auto Auction

Highest Year-Over-Year Growth: Manheim Indianapolis and Norwalk Auto Auction

"These winning auctions recognize that their customers' remarketing programs can be more successful by offering a mix of in-lane and online options," explained Mike Broe, executive vice president of Manheim U.S. operations.

"As customers continue to realize greater efficiencies through online remarketing, it will be increasingly important for physical auctions to offer a wider variety of remarketing channels for their customers," he continued.

Sellers interested in remarketing vehicles via OVE.com can contact the general manager of their nearest Manheim auction. A list of Manheim auction locations is available at www.manheim.com.
