Auction Management Solutions (AMS) shared this week that the firm has something notable brewing in Wisconsin.

AMS announced that Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction (GMAA) has partnered with the firm for business development consulting.

“We are very excited to be a part of the AMS Group of independent auctions,” GMAA owner Kristie Letizia said in a news release from AMS. “Over the last several years, we have built a great base of dealer consignment and fleet lease business and feel that the timing is right to start expanding further into the national consignor space.

“We think AMS will be a great help to us in achieving our goals,” Letizia added.

Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction is in Milwaukee, operating on 35 acres and offering more than 500 units weekly, across five auction lanes. Full reconditioning, mechanical and transportation services are also available.

“We are equally very excited to be working with the team at GMAA,” AMS president and founder Tom Stewart said. “Drew Hoenecke, fleet-lease manager at GMAA, has a great reputation within the national account community, previously holding positions with Credit Acceptance and Wachovia Bank. Drew’s background and experience from both sides of the business gives them a huge leg up in understanding customer needs.”

AMS provides consulting services to the automotive industry, including independent auto auctions. AMS said one key area is business development, which involves contacting national consignors to solicit the utilization of auction partners for the liquidation of their assets.

AMS also provides services such as compliance, marketing, financial analysis, internet and outside-the-gate sales, sales training, ev solutions, lot operations, and data reviews.

“The goal for AMS is to empower our auction partners to grow and increase effectiveness in our industry,” Stewart said. “Not only do we help independent auctions increase the volume of cars they sell every week, but we also put an emphasis on ensuring they are providing the best service in the business while maintaining profitability.”
