Sandy Schwartz Named President of Manheim, Eisner to Retire

March 01, 2011

ATLANTA -  Cox Enterprises announced that Sandy Schwartz has been appointed president of its automotive services subsidiary, Manheim. He will continue reporting to Jimmy Hayes, president and chief executive officer of Cox Enterprises.

A Cox veteran for more than 25 years, Schwartz will be responsible for managing Manheim, a global provider of vehicle remarketing services. Chip Perry, president and CEO of Cox subsidiary will continue reporting to Schwartz, bringing together all Cox automotive interests under single leadership. Schwartz's automotive experience also includes leading Cox AutoTrader, which produced paid and free publications serving consumers and dealers in the automotive market.

"Sandy's extensive automotive, online and media experience is a valuable asset to Cox Enterprises," said Hayes. "Sandy has a broad and deep understanding of our Cox businesses and unique culture, and I am delighted for him to bring his expertise to Manheim.  Under his leadership, Cox Media Group has thrived through transformation and he will bring the same innovative thinking to Manheim."

Most recently, Schwartz served as president of Cox Media Group, Cox's integrated broadcasting, publishing and digital media subsidiary. He joined Cox in 1985 at the Tribune Newspapers in Arizona, where he served a number of roles before being named president and publisher in 1995. From 1996 to 2001, he served as executive vice president of the Austin-American Statesman. Schwartz also has served as vice president and general manager of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, executive vice president of Cox Newspapers and vice president of business development for Cox Enterprises. He later was promoted to president of Cox Auto Trader. 

Dean Eisner retires from Cox after 19 years of dedicated service and will be available as an advisor to Schwartz until his retirement this summer, according to Cox Enterprises. Prior to his role at Manheim, he served as vice president of business development for Cox Enterprises. Eisner joined Cox in 1992 as managing director of Cox International.

"Dean has done a tremendous job of growing Manheim's international presence, championing its early entry into the critically important online arena, and navigating the business through a tumultuous economy while setting in place Manheim's broad-sweeping, accelerated transformation process," Hayes said.  "We are grateful for his talent, dedication and service."

    As an ex employee of Manheim Dallas I'm so disappointed in the treatment of dedicated employees subject to sexual harrassment and bullying of management. I worked 5 plus years for Cox and due to minor health conditions was unable to continue my current position as quadrant coordinator. The HR manager was subject to satisfy managers and politely disregard employees. Cox is world wide known as a family operated business that cares. The lack of HR involvement allows the management to harrass and bully employees. Females or subject to verbal amd sexual abuse. Im so upset that Cox allows this type of work environment. My skill set put me in position to work in several areas but due to operations bullying I was denied over 10 positions. Brian Walker Nick Hanson Kim Campbell violated several humane rights. I was even placed in situation where they ignored doctor restrictions causing me to dehydrate and go pn fmla. During this time I interviewed for at least 6 positions I more than qualified for and turned down for no reason other than Brian and Nick negative statements. This is unacceptable to me and I hope Cox enterprise. Sandy is this the kind of company you stand behind.
