Earlier this year, ADESA Northwest was selected as the U.S. Bank 2015 Auction of the Year in the Marine/RV segment.

The auction, formerly known as Brasher’s Northwest Auto Auction, has received this honor six times—every year since U.S. Bank began awarding it in 2010 as a way to recognize its top specialty auctions.

To determine the winning auction, U.S. Bank looks at criteria like NADA retentions and conversion rates, as well as operational benchmarks like days to transport and days to condition report.

Mark Melton, general manager of ADESA Northwest, and Jodi Rowland, the auction’s fleet/lease manager, accepted the award on behalf of the ADESA Northwest staff last month.

The auction in Eugene, Oregon, has been running this specialty sale for nearly 20 years. When Mark started there as fleet/lease manager, he made building the specialty sale one of his priorities. Today, the RV/marine/powersports sale at ADESA Northwest is known (at least regionally) as the “World Famous” specialty sale. Mark credits Jodi and the rest of the fleet/lease team, the recon and sales teams, and all the other employees at ADESA Northwest for the continued success of their twice-a-month specialty sale.

Mark, Jodi and their teams have built an outstanding partnership with U.S. Bank. We want to extend our warmest congratulations to the entire ADESA Northwest team, and we hope their winning streak continues.
