Theo Jelks doesn’t know a stranger; and he’s sure to make friends at his new home—ADESA Las Vegas. ADESA’s newest auction is lucky to have a leader like Theo, who is well-known and well-respected throughout the industry.

Theo built his strong industry knowledge and diverse management skill set during his many years at ADESA. First, as executive sales director and then as general manager of ADESA Tampa. During his four years in Florida, this auction became one of our fastest-growing locations.

Next, he crossed the continental U.S. to head up ADESA Los Angeles for the past two-and-a-half years.

Before joining the ADESA family, Theo started his career in the automotive industry as a business manager of Car Brite, a manufacturer of automotive reconditioning products. His background also includes seven years at the Wichita Falls Texas Police Department and five years of military service in the United States Air Force.
