January is a time to look forward and set goals for ourselves, but it is also a good opportunity to reflect on the year that just ended.

On that note, it’s a great time to remember all of the ADESA auction locations and employees who received awards and accolades from our industry partners. When I read through this list, I’m inspired. It reminds me that I am surrounded by an incredibly talented group of hard-working people. I’m pleased to see their dedication recognized by our customers and colleagues.

Below is a list of ADESA auctions and employees who received honors and awards in 2017.

Congratulations to the winners on your achievements, as individuals and as auction teams. I look forward to your successes in 2018.
