America’s Auto Auction has promoted Karol Kirby Ahmed to general manager of America’s Auto Auction Bowling Green.

“Karol joined America’s Auto Auction in 2017,” said Cam Hitchcock, CEO at AAA. “Her rich auction lineage evolved from her family’s auction business in South Central Kentucky and Middle Tennessee.

“Her late father, Ron Kirby Sr., served as auctioneer to numerous organizations and was a well-beloved figure in the auction industry.”

Laura Taylor, senior vice president at AAA, said she was excited about Ahmed’s promotion.

“Her years of auction experience are impeccable, and the cheering crowd when I made the announcement was more proof that she is the right leader for this location,” Taylor said.

A Western Kentucky University graduate, Ahmed also completed the Certified Auctioneers Institute at Indiana University. Her award-winning marketing and co-ownership of Kirby Auto Auction underlines her advantage as general manager at AAA Bowling Green.

Ahmed added, “This iconic auto auction in Bowling Green, Kentucky is rich in history and success. I look forward to advancing it further with the aid of our exceptional team! I am honored and excited to dive into this opportunity.”
