“This year’s NAMA AGM was a highly informative and well received meeting,” said Louise Wallis, head of the National Association of Motor Auctions (NAMA), commenting on the event which was held in Marbella, Spain.

The meeting, which took place on 14 May, discussed a number of key industry issues, such as grading and current market conditions and saw the participation of several members and experts from the industry; including representatives from the American NAAA - National Auto Auction Association. A charity auction in aid of BEN - the automotive industry charity also took place following the AGM, raising a phenomenal £11,200.

Wallis continued, “We were pleased to welcome our American counterparts from the NAAA, who gave us an interesting insight into US auctions and their health and safety issues.

“We are extremely pleased with the amount raised for BEN and would like to thank everyone for their generous donations.

“Finally, during the event James Tomlinson, Managing Director of the Motor Auction Group was confirmed as the new NAMA chairman and Simon Henstock, UK Operations Director of BCA, was nominated vice chairman after Paul Hill stepped down. We wish them both the best of luck in their new roles.”
