By Staff Writer October 07, 2020

Copart Inc. announced the appointment of three new members to its senior executive leadership team: Chief Operating Officer Steve Powers, Chief Marketing and Product Officer Scott Booker, and Chief Financial Officer John North. All three executives will work from Copart’s global headquarters in Dallas, Texas and will report to Copart President Jeff Liaw.

Powers, previously Copart’s Eastern Division VP of Operations, was recently promoted to become Copart’s COO. Steve leads Copart’s operations team, consisting of over 5,000 employees across more than 200 locations, optimizing processes and technology to ensure excellent service for Copart’s customers and members.

Steve Powers joined Copart in 1995 when the company acquired NER. He has served as Copart’s VP of Operations since 2010, and succeeds Sean Eldridge as COO, who recently retired after a 30-year career with the company.

Booker joined Copart as CMO and CPO. Scott leads Copart’s efforts to recruit, retain, empower, and serve the company’s global member network via robust and strategic web, promotional, public relations, creative and international marketing campaigns. In his product leadership role, Scott is responsible for evaluating, building, and enhancing Copart’s product portfolio.

Booker previously served as president of Hotels.com and CEO of Healthgrades, among other senior leadership positions with Internet marketplace enterprises.

North joins Copart as CFO. North will lead Copart’s finance and accounting functions to help enable the company’s ongoing profitable growth.

Most recently, North served as the CFO of Avis Budget Group, a Fortune 500 global vehicle rental company. Prior to serving as Avis CFO, he spent 17 years in various leadership positions at Lithia Motors.

“I’m delighted to appoint these three exceptional leaders to their new positions,” Liaw said.
