Several veteran Manheim team members have been promoted to Market Center leadership positions, where they will work cooperatively across locations that share management and support functions. Created last year, Market Centers put multiple auction locations under a central leader, enabling greater collaboration and efficiencies for clients.

Manheim also announced that Manheim Statesville General Manager Ellie Johnson and Manheim Orlando General Manager Butch Herdegen Sr. retired from the company following a combined 65 years of dedicated service.

“While these moves were planned before the industry faced its toughest challenge yet, we know that having strong, seasoned leaders in our locations is critical to navigating the ups and downs of the industry,” said Patrick Brennan, senior vice president, Marketplace, Manheim.

JD Daniels was promoted to vice president and general manager of the Manheim Orlando-Central Florida Market Center. Since 2014, he has served as general manager of Manheim Phoenix where he increased both volume and profits, earning the location recognition including back-to-back Auction of the Year awards in 2018 and 2019.

Emily Decker, a 23-year member of the Manheim family, has been promoted to the role of Arizona Market Center leader and general manager of Manheim Phoenix. Decker will oversee the Phoenix operating location, Manheim Tucson and support Cox Automotive Mobility’s Pivet brand as it grows in the Phoenix market. Most recently, Decker oversaw operations for Manheim Indianapolis and Manheim Cincinnati.

Mandy Savage has been named general manager of the North Carolina Market Center that includes Manheim Statesville and Manheim Charlotte. Savage joined Manheim as a manager trainee in 2003. Since then, she has served in a variety of corporate and operational roles, including sales manager for one of the first OVE sales teams, director of digital best practices and assistant general manager of Manheim Palm Beach. Most recently, she spent the past six years as general manager of Manheim Detroit.

Noel Kitsch was promoted to general manager of Manheim Detroit and leader of the Manheim Detroit-Flint Market Center. A 20-year plus veteran of Manheim, Kitsch began his career at Manheim Orlando in Dealer Sales before transitioning into his first assistant general manager role in 2013.
