Manheim’s vice president of international operations Mark Brunn has named Brad Hart vice president of operations for Manheim Canada.
The new role, effective April 1, will see Hart be responsible for implementing Manheim Canada’s business strategies and overseeing Canadian operations.
All location general managers report directly to him. The company also says Hart will lead the “Canadian corporate office and works with the Manheim Canada team to maximize the market potential of all sales activities.”
“Brad has a genuine love for the business and leads by example,” said Brunn.
“By valuing the contribution of every employee and customer, he embodies the Manheim values of teamwork and customer service. His leadership abilities are well-established, and his promotion will benefit both Manheim and its customers.” Hart has spent nearly his entire career working in the automotive industry. He learned the business from the ground up, first as a car sales professional and then as an employee of Chrysler Canada.
He joined Manheim’s Toronto Auto Auction in 1989 and served in various capacities before being named general manager of Manheim Oshawa.
Hart returned to the Toronto Auto Auction in June of 1995 as its general manager.
