Today marks the start of the National Auto Auction Association’s Annual Convention! I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome our industry to ADESA’s hometown of Indianapolis. The Circle City is known for its Hoosier hospitality, and I encourage you to discover a few of the amazing things this city has to offer during your visit.

I look forward to meeting with customers and colleagues during the next few days, as well as participating in various convention sessions, including seeing two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin and of course, legendary football coach Lou Holtz.

This year is especially exciting for all of us at ADESA, and me in particular. As a former president of NAAA, it will be a pleasure to thank my good friend and colleague, Paul Lips, for his year of service as NAAA president and to welcome my good friend and fellow Bostonian, Jack Neshe, as incoming president. It also marks the 65th anniversary of NAAA’s founding.

ADESA is a member and long-time supporter of NAAA. Several of our employees and members of our senior leadership team serve and have served on numerous NAAA boards and committees throughout the years.

Welcome to Indianapolis!
