Brown's key focus will be on managing and achieving volume and revenue growth targets, strengthening the contract portfolio, and working in partnership with Manheim customers and other Cox Automotive businesses to deliver the best possible experience and value.
Manheim’s managing director Pete Bell said: "Tamara joins an experienced and well-respected sales team, which, combined with her extensive and proven expertise in the sector will set her up for success."
