NAAA Honors Veteran Black Book Exec

By Staff Writer November 21, 2018

Tom Cross, the Hearst Corporation executive vice president who oversees the media conglomerate's transportation portfolio, was recently inducted into the National Auto Auction Association’s Hall of Fame.

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 previously honored Cross by naming him a Warren Young Fellow in 2013. That same year he was inducted into the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association's Ring of Honor for his many contributions to the industry and his professional accomplishments.

Cross is responsible for Hearst's business media group that delivers more than 8 billion vehicle valuations annually used by dealers and financial institutions throughout the U.S. and Canada for their transactions. The transportation portfolio includes Black Book, Canadian Black Book and MOTOR Information Systems, an automotive data supplier.

He also serves on the board of directors of CAMP Systems International, a Hearst company that is the leading independent provider of aviation management products and services.
