Auction Services takes a holistic approach to delivering a better experience for its auction partners

To strengthen its business relationships with the auction partners who support the inventory needs of its independent dealer clients, NextGear Capital has created an Auction Services department. Tapped to lead the group is Sandy Moon, the company’s AVP of Auction and Floor Plan Services. 

Planning for Auction Services began in 2021. The work included reimagining and, in turn, realigning the company’s flooring and funding departments to create collaborative consulting teams. The goal is to build in-depth relationships with auctions to better understand their unique needs and harness the collective resources of NextGear Capital to provide customized solutions.

“Our focus for creating a dedicated Auction Services team was to broaden our support and expertise to better meet the needs of our valued auction partners,” explained John Wick, SVP of Lending for NextGear Capital. “Bringing our best-in-industry knowledge and exceptionally skilled team members to the table allowed us to take a fresh approach to how we interact with our auction partners and become a collaborative, trusted resource to help both organizations drive growth.”

A 17-year member of the NextGear Capital team, Moon brings experience in operations management and team building to her new position. In addition, she has hired Danny McNelis as the team’s auction director. Previously serving as a senior client solutions executive for NextGear Capital, he brings strong relationship-building skills to this new role.
