I am pleased to congratulate ADESA Tampa on being named 2015 Auto Auction of the Year by the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA). The NIADA is one of the nation’s largest trade associations and represents more than 38,000 licensed used car dealers in the motor vehicle industry.

The award is given annually to the auction with the highest level of customer service for independent dealers, while showing support for the auction’s state association, dealer members and local community.

Indeed, the team members at ADESA Tampa appreciate the independent dealers at their auction. They have hosted, sponsored and promoted Florida Independent Automobile Dealers Association (FIADA) membership drives and events. And the auction recently added a FIADA Independent Dealer Lane, which has given independent dealers the boost they need with premium lane placements and discounted bi-monthly fees. These efforts earned Curt Farris, ADESA Tampa’s general manager, the title of FIADA’s Auction Person of the Year in 2014.

ADESA Tampa also appreciates the community. The auction is a big supporter of many charitable organizations: American Red Cross, Ronald McDonald House and Child Legacy Juvenile Diabetes.

I’m very proud of everyone at ADESA Tampa and Curt for their innovative accommodations of our independent dealers. We can’t wait to see what the future has in store.
