We love it when our customers recognize our auctions for outstanding performance and service. It’s a direct reflection of our team’s hard work and commitment to going above and beyond. We also like to recognize our top-performing auctions with ADESA Auction of the Year awards. I’m excited to announce that this year’s winner for best overall performance is … ADESA Calgary.

Along with ADESA CEO and President Stéphane St-Hilaire, I had the distinct honor of recognizing ADESA Calgary and several of our other high-performing auctions at a recent meeting in Indianapolis. ADESA Calgary General Manager Jim Busby captained his team through an incredible year, and we appreciate his leadership. The team at ADESA Calgary was not only recognized as our North American Auction of the Year, but also our ADESA Canada Auction of the Year. Please join me in congratulating Jim and his fantastic team on a job well done.

In addition to our overall North American Auction of the Year winner, we also recognized more than a dozen auction teams from across the U.S. and Canada for their outstanding work. These team members continue to deliver amazing results for our customers, and we’re proud of their exceptional work.
