PROGRAM SEEKS AUCTIONS’ NEXT GENERATION
By Jeffrey Bellant
CHICAGO – Auction veterans and future leaders are being called to the classroom for a new venture dubbed Auction Academy.
Pierre Pons, President of remarketing consultancy TPC Management Co., introduced the plan during the recent National Auto Auction Association convention.
Pons said the idea came to him after talking with auction operators Lynn Weaver and Bob McConkey about how to train the next generation of auction leaders.
The solution was a two-track program: One will be the Auction Performance Group for auction owners and general managers, which will act like a traditional 20 group, Pons said.
The second portion, called the Next Generation Leaders course, is what excites Pons.
