As we begin a new year, I find myself looking back at 2018 and reflecting on the goals and successes achieved at all levels of ADESA.

I believe that our people are the best in the business––a fact that is reaffirmed by the sheer number of awards, accolades and recognitions given to our auction locations and employees each year.

2018 was no different, as our passion, dedication and hard work were acknowledged numerous times by our customers and peers. Congratulations to all the winners on their spectacular achievements. I look forward to seeing the awards that are bestowed in 2019.
