Vehicle Auctions

Outsourced Senior Auction Management Expertise is only a Call Away:

Never has the auction business experienced such change and relied so greatly on the experience of the existing management team to deliver transformational change whilst still holding down the responsibility of their ‘day-job’. Sound familiar?

CMP is uniquely positioned to work at every level of an auction’s sales & operations, capable of both:

  • Being directly engaged in leading the day-to-day, providing Business Services to include Executive Cover and Market Research, through to Business Turnaround, Business Development, the Strategy and Sales & Marketing Planning and Sales & Marketing Campaigns at either the corporate, auction centre, business unit and functional level.
  • Heading transformational change management projects whilst fully understanding auctions, its market, its customers and its key players.

CMP brings together both the ‘Theory and Practice’ required to deliver its Business Services within the Auction Sector. Led by Alan Crouch, CMP’s managing director, who himself is an MBA, PRINCE2, Fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry, trained and accredited ibd Group Ltd advisor & consultant, an accredited consultant by government grant Manufacturer Advisory Service and a member of the Association of British Mentors coupled with a career that has been directly within the automotive sector, mostly in the auction business, from national sales through to managing director and CEO.

The market is changing. It has been stated that: ‘In a perfect market, there would be no need for auctions at all’ with the implication being that as the vehicle manufacturers, contract hire & leasing, dealer group and rental businesses embrace online with a resurgence of in-house remarketing operations, whilst work at getting ever closer to the B2C ‘wholesale-to-retail’ customer, more than ever there is a need to plan and manage change within the auction proposition, sales and operations.

Over and above the key auction vendors, online & digital innovation also brings the threat of new entrants, as the capabilities of reconditioning & storage operations, traditional online B2C businesses, online auction companies, foreign investors and salvage market leaders move ever more across the traditional boundaries of the auction business.

And then, there’s the day-to-day to take care of too.
