WACO, Texas — Alliance Auto Auctions announced earlier this week the promotion of Christina Thomas to General Manager of the Alliance Waco location. Christopher Dean, COO of Alliance said, “Once again, we get to see an individual that has worked hard, proven themselves and grown through our ranks to take a step into a bigger leadership role. We are so excited and proud to announce that Christina Thomas will be our next General Manager.”
Christina started in the auction business in 2005 at ADESA. She began in Tele-Sales as a temporary employee and worked her way to a permanent position. Not long after that, she was promoted to a District Tele-Sales supervisory role and eventually a Tele-Sales Regional Manager. During her tenure in her supervisory roles, she worked for Tim Adams when he managed both Shreveport and Dallas.
Dean continued, “I want to point out that Christina was the very first employee that Tim Adams, CEO of Alliance referred, and I hired her in Dallas shortly after I got on the ground. Christina told us early on that she had a long term goal within our company to run an auction for Tim Adams someday”.
Christina added, “I am very excited and humbled to have this opportunity to continue my journey with the amazing group of people here at Alliance Waco”. Tim Adams commented, “This is the Alliance Culture! Aligning with others to help them achieve their goals! Christina began with us in Dallas as a salesperson and has been one of the company frontrunners in sales ever since. Christina has a tremendous work ethic and is one of the hardest working individuals that you will meet in this industry. She is very trustworthy and dedicated and will always go above and beyond and do whatever the company needs and will do it with a great attitude”.
