I love auctions! Plain and simple. I believe the value proposition for live auctions is the ability to engage the crowd on a personal level, and realize a greater result because of it.
I am a seasoned veteran auctioneer, with over 25 years of experience in the heavy equipment, automobile, charity fund raising, and general liquidation industries. I can think on my feet and manage the fast pace of the auction environment, as well deal with my crowd on a personal level, that invites them to participate.
I also work diligently on my clarity because I believe while "speed" is important in some cases, a bidder is far more likely to engage when they understand exactly what's being asked of them. Of course, when its time to "make hay", I can get after it.
Global auctioneer- I traveled around the world conducting auctions for RBA. In addition to our normal equipment auctions, I also conducted numerous charity auction events, as well as served as host/emcee.
I conducted 3 weekly auctions, as well as led the "Auction School" before our public auctions.
I managed the Daimler-Chrysler Factory Dept, Transportation Dept, and Truck & Heavy Equipment Dept at different times over a 7 year period.
I operate my own auction company.
