MT. LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2011) - ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, today announced the first-ever recipients of its Auctioneer of Distinction award. The award was established to recognize individuals who display excellence in auctioneering through effective communication and relationship building with both buyers and sellers of vehicles. The first three recipients of the award are:

  • Ron Janacek, representing ARI vehicles at ADESA Sarasota
  • Richard Murray, representing ARI vehicles at BSC's Bel Air Auto Auction
  • Joe Velez, representing ARI vehicles at ADESA Los Angeles

"These three award winners have been honored because they do much more than just facilitate the auction," said ARI Vice President Vehicle Remarketing Bob Graham.

These are the types of individuals that ARI is proud to partner with."
