Steve Langdon has been tapped to fill the newly created position of senior director of business development for ADESA Canada.
This marks a return for Langdon to ADESA, who previously held leadership roles for the auction giant in technology, commercial sales and dealer sales for Onlane and ADESA.
He most recently served as president of RSR Global.
“As our business has grown and evolved, we have developed a suite of innovative products and services that offer tangible benefits to our national client base,” said Trevor Henderson, chief operating officer of ADESA Canada.
“The used-vehicle industry – and the remarketing business specifically – has become increasingly sophisticated. There is a desire for better data, tools and integration across partners and platforms, which presents numerous opportunities for ADESA. Steve will lead a wide range of strategic initiatives aimed at deploying ADESA’s analytic and reporting capabilities throughout our online, public and mobile auction solutions.”
ADESA Canada’s chief client officer Lisa Scott said Langdon’s experience and deep industry relationships are true assets to customers and the company.
“We have a comprehensive product and service offering for commercial sellers, dealers and consumers,” she said. “Steve will play a pivotal role in how ADESA Canada brings these to market, and we look forward to having Steve’s expertise and energy back on our team.”
