Doug’s Market Message

Doug Doll

December, 2017

The month of November was unpredictable for the wholesale market. It began with below average sales and unusually lower attendance. However, as the month continued, we saw our numbers and attendance bounce back to normal.

This year has been a great year and looking back, I realize just how much we have accomplished. First we completed our 10 acre lot expansion, we resurfaced the front and back lots, our auction lanes were resurfaced, and we have started construction on our new administrative building.

Make plans to join us for our Holiday Sale scheduled for December 13th and 14th. The two day sale will feature thousands of corporate and dealer units, a Kia Motors America dealer appreciation sale, and our annual charity check presentation. This is an event you don’t want to miss so get your travel accommodations booked early.

KCI hosted its annual employee Christmas party on December 1st. Each year, we select two employees who exceed our expectations and honor them with Employee of the Year. This year, our full time employee of the year is David Bates. David works at our gate and is a huge asset to our auction. Our part time employee of the year is Joe Mesey. Joe has been with the auction for several years and works in our CR department. If you see either of these men, please congratulate them.

– I look forward to seeing you in the lanes,
