I had the distinct pleasure of announcing the Dealer Auction of the Year winner—ADESA Sacramento—and presenting the award to the Dealer Sales & Service Manager there, Jose Contreras-Torres.

With 14 years of experience, Jose has brought the sales and customer service team to another level. Their unparalleled attention to detail and committed effort to service makes the auction’s win well deserved.
