Hallett Wins Award, Calls for Change Featured

By Staff Writer October 04, 2019

KAR Global’s chairman and CEO Jim Hallett, called for an end to running cars through auction lanes for safety.

Hallett, who was accepting the National Auto Auction Association’s Hall of Fame award in Indianapolis Oct. 2, said the industry should move toward a standard where cars are not run through physical lanes.

He said the change could be made, even while allowing for inspections, marshaling, reconditioning and online sales from physical locations.

Hallett included the comments during his induction speech during the organization's 71st annual convention in Indianapolis.

Hallett was instrumental in sharing KAR's Safe T. Sam auction safety awareness and accident prevention program with NAAA to provide the training free to its members.

Membership in the Hall of Fame, established in 1968, recognizes individuals whose long-term service to the auto auction industry and NAAA has contributed improvements to remarketing as a whole, has worked with the trade organization to benefit its members and has consistently followed the high standards of the association's Code of Ethics.

NAAA represents more than 340 auction members and 130 associate members in North America.
