  2. 2. The NAAA<br />As the NAAA celebrates its 62nd Anniversary and salutes a number of member auctions, information about the early beginnings of the auction industry is hard to come by. <br />Only a patient and diligent search of industry publications and websites reveals some insight into the accomplishments and achievements of a few early pioneers.<br />
  3. 3. The NAAA cont. <br />Few industry outsiders realize the size, scope and strategic importance the wholesale motor vehicle auction industry plays in fueling the U.S. auto industry and ultimately the national economy<br />In 2009 alone, National Auto Auction Association (NAAA) North American member auctions moved almost 14.7 million vehicles through their lanes at a sales rate of 61%. Over 8.9 million vehicles were sold at an average sale price of $9,026, representing a combined gross value of $80.9 billion. <br />
  4. 4. J.M. Rawls – Rawls Auto Auction, Leesville, SC<br />J.M. "Martin" Rawls is recognized as holding the first wholesale auto auction.<br /> Rawls was a farmer at heart and owner of Rawls Auto Sales, a used-car outlet in Leesville, South Carolina. <br />After attending a cattle auction in Columbia, he wondered if cars could also be sold the same way<br />
  5. 5. J.M. Rawls – Rawls Auto Auction, Leesville, SC cont. <br />In March of 1938, Rawls and his partner, S.L. "Monty" Montgomery, decided to give it a try.<br /> They built an auction booth in the garage at Rawls Auto Sales and hired Col. R.H. Sapp as their auctioneer. <br />
  6. 6. J. Frank Brasher – Brasher’s Salt Lake Auto Auction<br />Frank Brasher founded Salt Lake Auto Auction in 1949<br />Over the years, Brasher pioneered a number of customer-focused innovations and built a loyal following among dealers from Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon, Montana and Canada <br />
  7. 7. J. Frank Brasher – Brasher’s Salt Lake Auto Auctioncont<br />The Salt Lake Auto Auction was the first to offer full reconditioning and dealer floor planning, which Frank introduced in the 1950s. <br />Transport service by an auction-owned fleet began in the 1960s <br />
  8. 8. Salt Lake Auto Auction <br />Salt Lake Auto Auction was also among the first in the country to host sales for Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler in the 1960s.<br /> Today, the spacious, modern facility encompasses 70-acres, including a 17,000 square foot main office and storage for over 7,500 vehicles <br />
  9. 9. Frank J. Brasher <br />Frank J. Brasher served as NAAA President in 1973 and was inducted into the NAAA Hall of Fame in 1987. A son, Larry F. Brasher, also served as NAAA President in 1989 and was inducted into the NAAA Hall of Fame in 2005<br />
  10. 10. Irving Mondore – Central New York Auto Auction<br />The CNY Auto Auction is a tribute to Irving Mondore, a former dairy farmer and used car salesman who founded the Syracuse Auto Auction in 1954.<br /> The fledgling auction struggled at first.<br /> However, a major turning point occurred in 1962, when Mondore changed the auction to an evening sale <br />
  11. 11. Irving Mondore – Central New York Auto Auctioncont.<br />His daring idea was met with immediate success and crowds suddenly doubled in size.<br /> A new multi-lane facility was soon constructed, but it was Mondore's emphasis on superior customer service with indifference to dealer size that was the prime contributor to the auction’s success. <br />
