CARMEL, Ind. -

Steve Langdon, who most recently was president of RSR Global, is returning to ADESA.

It was announced that he will take on the role of senior director of business development for ADESA Canada, a newly created position.

“As our business has grown and evolved, we have developed a suite of innovative products and services that offer tangible benefits to our national client base,” said Trevor Henderson, chief operating officer of ADESA Canada. “The used-vehicle industry — and the remarketing business specifically — has become increasingly sophisticated. There is a desire for better data, tools and integration across partners and platforms, which presents numerous opportunities for ADESA. Steve will lead a wide range of strategic initiatives aimed at deploying ADESA’s analytic and reporting capabilities throughout our online, public and mobile auction solutions.”

Before his time with RSR, Langdon had various tech, commercial sales and dealer sales leadership posts with ADESA and Onlane (OPENLANE’s predecessor).

“Steve’s experience and deep industry relationships are true assets to our customers and our company,” said Lisa Scott, chief client officer for ADESA Canada. “We have a comprehensive product and service offering for commercial sellers, dealers and consumers. Steve will play a pivotal role in how ADESA Canada brings these to market, and we look forward to having Steve’s expertise and energy back on our team.”

ADESA Canada is a presenting sponsor of the Auto Remarketing Canada Conference, which is set for April 3-4 in Toronto.
