Founded in 2004 by owner Kristie Letizia, GMAA is the largest independent auto auction in the state of Wisconsin. What originally started as a 15-acre facility has now grown to cover more than 35 acres, running five lanes weekly and offering more than 800 vehicles, featuring a separate state of the art reconditioning facility including a full body shop and an on-site test track.
“We are very excited to be working with the AMS team to help grow our national account base and to increase our national presence,” Letizia said. “We have a proven track record with accounts like Ally Bank, ARI and General Motors, and we want to bring that same positive experience and expertise to other national consignors.
“Ultimately these units offered will bring added inventory opportunities to the local dealers that we partner with here at GMAA,” Letizia added.
AMS was started by industry veterans Tom Stewart and Richard Curtis, who along with Jamye Carpenter, Shelly Frank and Cynthia Meyer, provide consulting, training and recruiting services to the automotive industry that include independent auto auctions, service providers and vendors.
“GMAA is an auction powerhouse in their market with a superlative track record, and through their partnership with AMS, we hope to expose this excellent auction location and its remarketing prowess to the national account community,” Stewart said.
