CARMEL, Ind. — This week, ADESA announced changes to the management teams at three of its Florida auction locations.

Jeff York, the previous general manager of ADESA Sarasota, will now lead ADESA Orlando as general manager, while Curt Farris, the previous general manager of ADESA Tampa, will now hold the same title at ADESA Sarasota. Additionally, Lisa O’Neil, who previously served as assistant general manager at ADESA Atlanta, will now serve as general manager at ADESA Tampa.

“Jeff, Curt and Lisa are veteran industry professionals with proven auction expertise and are key examples of the strong bench strength throughout our organization,” said ADESA COO Paul Lips. “They bring a breadth of knowledge and experience to their new roles and will excel at serving customers and employees alike in the Florida market.”

    Curt Farris I was humiliated by one of your sales managers that no one likes.I have spent a lot of money over the years and now I'm working under someone else's license and he was very rude to me. I've done nothing wrong to this man, everyone I speak to has a problem with Kelvin Frazier. he said I'm not welcomed their anymore and that he banned me from buying cars from Edesa. I really like this auction and buy a lots of cars from you guys. I'm very disappointed that I was treated like that. I played for the New York Yankees and the Tampa bay devil rays and the Oakland A"s for 8 years and he's the only guy who has it out for me for some apparent reason. You don't show up your customers that spend a lot of money at this awesome auction. He told me to go get my guy to sign me up and my guy was ready too sign papers to renew my auction access card and then he told me not to come back that I was banned from buying cars their. I had 10k to spend and he said if I didn't leave he was going to get the cop that works their who I know. I'm very disappointed the way I was treated and thinking about filing suit. I'm very serious. everyone else is great except Kelvin Frazier always has attitude with everyone.
