NAAA Names Warren Young Fellow

By Staff Writer May 15, 2020

Mike Browning, general manager of Manheim San Antonio and past NAAA president, has been named a Warren Young Fellow in recognition of his many contributions to the industry and association.

The National Auto Auction Association gave the award with a $2,500 donation in his name to NAAA’s nonprofit Warren Young Scholastic Foundation. Browning joins an exclusive group of 121 others who have attained the lifetime distinction of being named a Fellow. He received a gold medallion, a framed commemorative certificate, and will have his name engraved on a plaque of esteemed Fellows at NAAA headquarters.

Since its establishment in 2004, the Scholastic Foundation, named in honor of Warren Young Sr., a pioneer of the auto auction industry who retired after 35 years of service to his profession and NAAA, awards $52,000 in merit scholarships annually for study at accredited institutions.

“Mike was instrumental in establishing NAAA’s Disaster Relief Fund to help auction employees and their families recover from natural disasters, and in creating the Auto Auction of the Year Awards for Excellence in Community Service to show appreciation for the charitable acts auctions and staff volunteers perform, as well as encourage even greater public service,” said NAAA President Laura Taylor.

A native of Baton Rouge, La., Browning joined Manheim as the general manager of Manheim New Orleans auction. Four years later, he took the position of general manager of Manheim, Mississippi, in Hattiesburg. He was named as Manheim San Antonio GM in 2014.
