In a press release announcing the appointment, IAS founder Alexis Jacobs, said, “John has been a respected strategist and operating executive within the automotive industry for many years, and we are pleased to have him lead the IAS team.
“He will have full responsibility for the IAS suite of products, which we believe will change the way cars are transacted among auctions, dealers, consignors and consumers,” Jacobs continued.
