“With this video, we are broadcasting that we are hiring competitive people to be part of our fast growing team. If you have a passion for cars and a true desire to win, grow and excel, we want to hear from you,” said ACV Auctions chief executive officer George Chamoun.

Auctions are conducted from dealer lots and last just 20 minutes.
ACV’s end-to-end solution includes a detailed condition report. Additionally, the ACV app handles payments, title transfers and transportation arrangements for purchased vehicles.
