Avery and Triolaire join City Auction Group

City Auction Group has made two new appointments at Rockingham, with Maria Avery becoming corporate business manager and Sarah Triolaire named the new administration manager.

Avery, formerly a manager at Tesla and sales manager at Sytner, will oversee the exciting introduction of lane two, specifically for finance house and dealer group part exchange auction events.

She will also be responsible for leading the buyer engagement team to develop long term partnerships with major franchised dealer groups, car supermarkets and independent motor retailers 

Triolaire as administration manager will oversee all elements of entry, data control and processing team at the group’s largest UK defleet and vehicle remarketing centre. She has been with City Auction Group for five years.

City Auction Group has also recently restructured its management team with the appointment of Lynne Girvan as the corporate fleet director, David Scott as the group sales director, Helena O’Neill, as the finance director and Michael Tomalin as the CEO.

Tomalin said: “These new appointments are a game changer, as we drive the business to gain enhanced market share.

“The recent senior management team restructure across the Group introduced newly appointed directors from within - a new chapter for the business. 

“At Rockingham, we now offer the complete portfolio of professional defleet and vehicle remarketing solutions nationally, featuring a cutting-edge inspect and collect app; vehicle logistics and storage; corporate asset management software platform; vendor online pre-event vehicle preparation services; and tactical refurbishment solutions.

“We are introducing new, weekly dual lane sale events for corporate fleet, dealer group part exchange and finance houses from Tuesday 24th September 2019 at 10am.  These will complement the current lane one, which has established corporate fleet sales of more than 250 vehicles behalf of PSA Finance, TCH Leasing, Semalease, RCI Financial Services, United Rental Group, Honda Financial Services and Avis Budget Group.

“Our aim is to ensure the customer experience is enhanced to a consistent high standard, featuring every element across the spectrum of services, at the Midland’s largest automotive central hub.”
