ADESA Corp. announced on January 26, that it has consolidated its ADESA wholesale vehicle auction operations under the leadership of Jim Hallett. In addition to his role as president of the used-car auction business, Hallett will assume the role of chief operating officer.

"Hallett is respected as a strong industry leader; his experience qualifies him for this additional role."

Don Harris, who formerly was COO, will serve as Regional Vice President of the Southeastern United States. The other Regional Vice Presidents of ADESA are Ken Osborn, Tom Caruso, Mark Willey and Dennis Jones.
