McConkey Auction Group (MAG) is excited to announce its expansion into the southwestern United States via Dealers Auto Auction of Las Vegas. MAG’s partnership with DAA Las Vegas’ Dan Thomas and Russ Norrish adds a third physical auction location to the organization.
DAA Las Vegas is the only independent wholesale auto auction in the greater Las Vegas marketplace. The 6-lane auction was founded by auction veterans Thomas and Norrish six years ago and is poised for growth. Both will remain with the company as DAA Las Vegas’ Vice President/Partner and Managing Partner, respectively. “Russ and I started our careers in the auction industry 46 years ago,” says Thomas. “We were working for my father, who founded Golden Gate Auto Auction. Shortly afterward, we met Bob and have been personal friends and business associates ever since. It’s hard to believe that the three of us have 132 years of collective auction experience!” he adds. Dan and Russ are eager to work with MAG on expanding the auction. “After all these years in the business, we now have the chance to work together,” states Norrish. “I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career – this is going to be fun!”
Bob McConkey, CEO and President of McConkey Auction Group is excited about the potential of the Las Vegas market and looks forward to working alongside Dan, Russ, and their team as together they grow DAA Las Vegas into a major independent player within the Southwestern region.
