At the beginning of April, LAFCAA updated its lane schedule to allow customers more opportunities to bid on our expanding fleet/lease inventory. Every week at 9:30 AM, lane 6F will begin with Fleet, followed by Specialty and INOP units, which will now run weekly rather than the previous twice a month.
“These changes were implemented to allow our customers more opportunities to bid on our growing selection of fleet inventory.” CEO John Poteet said.
The integration of this change would not have been possible without the incredible work of our Fleet/Lease Manager, Michael McCollum, who recently celebrated 15 years of working for Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction! These fleet/lease changes, among many other things, would not have been possible without Mike, and we would like to extend a very special congratulations to him!
Two other valuable members of Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction family recently earned well-deserved promotions. Matt Alombro has been promoted to Vice President & General Manager. Jacob Warren has been promoted to Vice President & Chief Operating Officer. These promotions were hard-earned, and we are excited to see what changes these two valuable employees will bring to the table in their new roles
People aren’t the only ones growing at Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction. Our new vehicle registration building is being completed at an extraordinary rate! This new section of the property will allow for a smoother process in getting vehicles registered, creating a better auction experience for our customers. The new LAFCAA registration building is planned to open at the start of summer 2022!
May is approaching fast, and for Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction, that means it’s time to celebrate our anniversary! This year our company is celebrating 20 years in business.
“20 years is a huge milestone for this company,” said Poteet. “it’s moments like this that make us want to thank everyone for helping us get to where we are today.”
The auction will host a big sale with a vast selection of vehicles and a special John Dough gift auction where customers can bid on a wide selection of $20,000 in cash prizes.
It wouldn’t be a celebration in Louisiana without some crawfish! We’ll have plenty to go around for our customers who make it out to this very special sale. Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction will host its 20th Anniversary Sale on May 24th, 2022.
