Auction Veteran Retires Featured

Manheim announced that Jay Cadigan, vice president of industry relations, will retire on Aug. 31.
Cadigan’s retirement marks the end of a renowned automotive industry career spanning four decades, including leadership positions in the auction as well as leasing and rental car remarketing businesses.
As vice president of industry relations since 2012, Cadigan led Manheim's strategic efforts to develop, promote and establish consistent standards, processes and policies that further the industry. Prior to that, he served the company as market vice president for Florida and Puerto Rico, president of sales and operations for the General Motors and Avis Budget Group accounts and general manager of Skyline Auto Exchange (now Manheim NY Metro Skyline).
Throughout his career, Cadigan served the remarketing industry in National Auto Auction Association (NAAA) volunteer leadership roles. A 2015 inductee into the NAAA Hall of Fame, he is a past president of the association and current member of its executive committee and board of directors, serving as executive vice president.  
Cadigan is also a past president of the Eastern Auto Auction Association.
Other recent industry honors include Cadigan's award of the Ring of Honor in 2016 from the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) and being named Remarketer of the Year at the 2015 Conference of Automotive Remarketing.
Cadigan began his automotive career working at a car dealership before earning a bachelor's degree in business management from St. Mary's College of California. Prior to joining Manheim in 1993, Cadigan served as assistant general manager of Golden Gate Auto Auction in Fremont, Calif., and gained remarketing experience by working with US Fleet Leasing, Avis Car Leasing and Hertz.
