With the intention of broadening its client roster beyond the 16 already in its portfolio, Auction Management Solutions (AMS) announced on Monday that Jamye Carpenter has joined its team as vice president of business development. 

AMS highlighted that Carpenter has more than 18 years of experience in the auto auction industry, with positions ranging from customer service to senior vice president.

Carpenter started her career in 1999 with AutoCheck as a customer service representative and eventually became the director of business development. She was responsible for growth in both the insurance and auction industry business that included creative ideas and building an ever-widening network of industry connections. Carpenter also managed the Red Mountain Technologies Client Services team, serving many of the largest property and casualty insurers in the country, while continuing to sell and develop new products for the auction and insurance clients she served. 

“We are very excited to have Jamye join our team. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to AMS and those qualities will benefit our partners tremendously,” AMS president Tom Stewart said.

“Jamye will be working closely with our auction partners on the business development projects that we currently have in place, as well as help to expand our existing client base,” Stewart continued.

Carpenter also serves on the National Auto Auction Association Convention Planning Committee, the International Automotive Remarketers Alliance Standards Committee, and has been active with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.   

AMS was started by Stewart and Richard Curtis to provide consulting and recruiting services to the automotive industry that includes independent auto auctions, service providers and vendors. 

The focus of AMS is to provide strategic business development services, with an emphasis on business processes and profitability that aid in the growth and success of client/partner businesses.
