• MT. JULIET, Tenn. — Auction Management Solutions (AMS) recently announced that Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction (GMAA) has partnered with AMS for business development consulting.

AMS provides consulting services to the automotive industry, including independent auto auctions. One key area AMS focuses on is business development, which involves contacting national consignors to solicit the utilization of auction partners for the liquidation of their assets.

Tom Stewart, President and Founder of AMS, commented, “The goal for AMS is to empower our auction partners to grow and increase effectiveness in our industry. Not only do we help independent auctions increase the volume of cars they sell every week, but we also put an emphasis on ensuring they are providing the best service in the business while maintaining profitability.”

AMS also provides services such as Compliance, Marketing, Financial Analysis, Internet and Outside-the-Gate Sales, Sales Training, EV Solutions, Lot Operations, and Data Reviews.

“We are very excited to be a part of the AMS Group of independent auctions,” said Kristie Letizia, owner of Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction. “Over the last several years, we have built a great base of dealer consignment and fleet lease business and feel that the timing is right to start expanding further into the national consignor space. We think AMS will be a great help to us in achieving our goals.”

“We are equally very excited to be working with the team at GMAA,” Steward added. “Drew Hoenecke, Fleet Lease Manager at GMAA, has a great reputation within the National Account community, previously holding positions with Credit Acceptance and Wachovia Bank. Drew’s background and experience from both sides of the business gives them a huge leg up in understanding customer needs.”

Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction is located in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Currently operating on 35 acres and offering more than 500 units weekly, across 5 auction lanes. Full reconditioning, mechanical, and transportation services are available. Visit their website at www.gmaa.com for more info.
