ARI said in a news release that during the Conference of Automotive Remarketing in March in Las Vegas, the company's manager of remarketing operations Chris Clarke was named the 2019 Consignor of the Year.
Clarke has served for 25-plus years in the automotive sector and has worked in just about every area of the remarketing industry, according to ARI. Clarke has worked as a buyer, seller, and consignor of vehicles. He has also partnered with auctions, dealers, and online sellers.
