Manheim recently announced that it has named Peter Grupposo vice president of dealer sales and selected Holly Capps to fill Grupposo’s former role as vice president of inventory solutions commercial and wholesale sales.
Both Grupposo and Capps will report to Manheim senior vice president of sales Tim McKinley and assume their new roles on June 1.
Grupposo most recently served as Manheim’s vice president of inventory solutions commercial and wholesale sales and has held other leadership roles within Manheim’s sales organization since 2014.
In 2013, before joining Manheim, Grupposo was vice president of operations and business development for NextGear Capital, where he designed and implemented the sales structure for both field sales and inside sales functions.
“Pete’s thought leadership and deep industry experience, coupled with his keen ability to assess industry trends and market dynamics, make him the ideal choice to lead our Dealer Sales team,” McKinley said in a news release. “I know he will bring a fresh approach and tremendous passion to continue driving sales while ensuring growth and continued success for our dealer clients.”
In his new position, Grupposo will lead a team of client executives responsible for developing and managing inventory solutions for dealer clients.

Coming from Cox Media, Capps most recently served as group vice president for the advertising division of Cox Communications, where she was responsible for leadership and development of sales strategies.
“Holly’s a proven leader with in-depth knowledge of the industry’s changing market conditions as well as the demands facing dealers and manufacturers today,” McKinley said. “I’m confident that she will continue to evolve our sales strategies to further help our commercial clients thrive in today’s marketplace.”
Throughout her 20-year career spent developing media solutions, Manheim said Capps has worked closely with Cox Media’s automotive dealer and manufacturer clients.
In her new role as Manheim's vice president of inventory solutions commercial and wholesale sales, Capps has been tasked with overseeing a team tasked with maintaining and exploring new revenue and market share growth opportunities for the company's commercial clients.
