ATLANTA — Manheim has promoted four individuals to the rank of general manager at four auction locations across the country, the company announced this week. Trever Enge, John Duplanty, Gus Jones and Maxine Vega will lead Manheim Georgia, Manheim Tucson, Manheim Arizona and Manheim New Mexico, respectively.
“Backed by their experience and passion for the business, these general managers will help Manheim deliver outstanding client service and continuously improve the auction experience,” said Barry Roop, vice president local and mobile Manheim’s Western region. “They are eager to partner with dealers, make it easy for them to work with Manheim and tap Cox Automotive’ s full line of products and services to support client growth.”
Enge has led business and product strategy for Cox Automotive and Manheim since 2012. His recent efforts have supported both organizations’ client success and, specifically, Cox Automotive’s largest commercial clients, the company added.
Before his time with Cox Automotive and Manheim, Enge worked in business development with Ally Financial’s SmartAuction, product development and strategy for Chrysler Group, and served as a product engineer at Borg Warner Automotive.
Duplanty has been with the Manheim organization for 11 years. During that time, he has held various roles. He began his career with Manheim as an intern while attending Arizona State University and worked his way up to general manager of Manheim Arizona, a role he held for two years up until this recent promotion to Manheim Tucson.
Jones began his career with Manheim in 2006 as a dealer sales manager. For the past nine years, the company stated, he has built his leadership skills and relationships as assistant general manager at Manheim Phoenix, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Hispanic Leadership Forum.
During Vega’s 14-year tenure with Manheim, she served as financial controller for several Manheim locations in multiple states. Most recently, she served as operations manager for Manheim New Mexico.
“Manheim is delighted by this crop of talent and values what they can offer our clients and the industry,” said Mark Ford, regional vice president southeast, Manheim. “We are committed to providing these team members the tools and information they need to succeed in 2017 and beyond.”
