The deal calls for ADESA Cincinnati/Dayton to assume Queen City Auto Auction's dealer base and other accounts. Former Queen City Auto Auction owner Ron Johnson is ADESA Cincinnati/Dayton's general sales manager of its new Friday sale. ADESA operates 52 wholesale auctions in the United States and Canada.
