ADESA has named new general managers at two of its auction locations, with ADESA chief operating officer Srisu Subrahmanyam describing them in a news release as having proven themselves in past roles for KAR Global and “rising to new challenges and posting solid results.”
The new general managers are Angela Williams for ADESA Houston and Brad Yeager for ADESA Ocala in Florida.
ADESA describes Williams as a “seasoned veteran of the industry.” She brings more than 20 years of experience, and she joined ADESA in 2017 as an executive sales director.
She has served as the commercial accounts manager at ADESA Houston since May of this year. Before joining ADESA, Williams was with Rawls Auto Auction in Leesville, S.C. for more than 20 years. At Rawls, she served in the positions of business development and marketing manager, assistant general manager and fleet lease manager. ADESA said she significantly grew the national footprint of the company and increased franchise and fleet lease sales during her time as business development and marketing manager.
As for Yeager, his deep roots in the Florida market include the past two years as regional sales director of the Southeast region for TradeRev, which is another KAR Global business unit. In that role, he opened markets in Charleston, S.C., and Mobile, Ala.
