Patrick Ming has joined the ADESA national sales team as executive sales director, and Vince McNeal has rejoined the team as senior director of customer solutions.
Ming joined the business unit of KAR Auction Services through the acquisition of upstream vehicle auction platform OPENLANE in 2011. Ming brings more than 20 years of experience in the automotive industry, and he most recently served as director of online programs at ADESA, where he oversaw development of customer-tailored upstream auction platforms for several large private-label portfolios supported by OPENLANE.
McNeal started with ADESA in 2005 as a dealer sales representative at the company’s ADESA Lexington auction location before promotions to fleet lease manager and assistant general manager. He went on to serve as executive sales director at ADESA for five years. McNeal was most recently executive director of commercial sales for TradeRev, another KAR business unit.
“Both Patrick and Vince have the skillsets and exceptional customer relationships to ensure a seamless transition to our commercial sales group,” John Hammer, ADESA president, said in a press release.
