Manheim Canada has signed a partnership agreement with Source Auto Auction, a newly-created auction facility in Edmonton, Alberta. Source Auto Auction is owned by Danny Fayad, an experienced automotive industry professional and entrepreneur.  This location – which will be Manheim’s first venture into Western Canada – is planned to open in May, according to the company.

“Our customers told us that establishing a presence in Western Canada would provide them with better access to our products, services and inventory,” said Tim Janego, regional vice president, east.  “This partnership supports Manheim Canada’s efforts to enhance its experience for customers while making it easier for them to conduct business.”

The Source Auto Auction management team will consist of owner Danny Fayad, and general manager Darcia Cuff, who brings 30 years of remarketing and auction industry leadership experience to the location. Fayad and Cuff will work closely with Manheim Canada’s four other operating locations, as well as Manheim’s Pacific Operations team, led by market vice president Julie Picard, to integrate Manheim’s products, services and best practices into their operations.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Manheim, as we both share a strong customer focus,” said Fayad, who will lead the operation as chief executive officer (CEO). “Combining our convenient location, great staff and state-of-the-art facility, with all the resources and technology that Manheim brings, gives our customers advantages they can’t come close to anywhere else.”
