With fireworks popping because of the Fourth of July, Auction Management Solutions is celebrating too, and not just for patriotic reasons, as the consulting firm started by industry veterans Tom Stewart and Richard Curtis has reached its one-year anniversary.
This past year, AMS highlighted that it has seen explosive growth in its core business of providing consulting services to the automotive industry, including but not limited to independent auto auctions, service providers and vendors.
“Richard and I are humbled by the success we have achieved in such a short period of time,” Stewart said. “We started this firm to deepen relationships between consignors and our clients, and to illustrate that independent auctions can and will continue to provide all the services consignors have come to expect.”
AMS is committed to have a singular focus of working closely with our client partners, helping them in various ways to be successful within the remarketing industry.
“If our clients are successful due to our assistance, then obviously we have been doing our job correctly,” Stewart said. “We also want the industry to know that working with our firm or an AMS client partner insures you will receive dedicated and superior service.”
AMS currently represents 17 auctions across 14 states, with new locations being added steadily. The main focus of AMS is to provide strategic business development services, with an emphasis on processes, profitability and exposure that aid in the growth and success of the client/partners.
“It is our intent to keep our clients on the forefront of the automotive remarketing industry by maintaining a comprehensive and competitive suite of services,” Curtis added.
To maintain quality service levels and keep pace with the continual growth of the client/partner businesses, AMS previously announced the addition of two strong additions to their staff.
Jamye Carpenter was brought on board in April as vice president of business development. Carpenter brings with her a wealth of automotive experience and knowledge in the many facets of the business.
In addition, AMS has recently added Shelly Frank to its team. Based on the West Coast, Frank joins AMS with more than 25 years of experience in the auto finance and wholesale auto auction industry. Frank previously served as loss mitigation operation manager of Fireside Bank, and as vice president of business development with North Bay Auto Auction.
While presently continuing to work with NBAA on projects as a consultant, Frank has also been active in the Western Chapter of the National Auto Auction Association.
“Both of these women bring years of experience, a wealth of industry knowledge, and contribute diverse areas of expertise to the team, allowing AMS to provide all manners of service to our partners,” Stewart said.
“AMS looks forward to many successful years of working with our clients and providing services to, and for, the entire industry,” Stewart went on to say.
