DAA Northwest has its roots in the best traditions of the
independent auction house. Auction president Bob McConkey has more
than 30 years of auto auction experience. He came through the ranks
in the industry, working
in various auctions as a fleet/lease manager, reconditioning
manager, sales manager, and general manager. Under Bob's direction,
Southern California Auto Auction doubled in size in three years and
in 1988 became the world's largest volume auto auction.
In 1992, Bob founded DAA Northwest with Greg Mahugh. The two industry
veterans have worked together for over three decades. Greg now serves as
DAA Northwest's senior vice president and general manager. Both Bob and
Greg are auctioneers.
DAA's facility was constructed in 1996 and continues to expand to serve
growing sales and services. In 2005, body shop and detail services were
opened to the general public as well as the wholesale auction trade. The
auction now encompasses 45 paved and secured acres and has 8 auction lanes
and a designated motorsports pavilion. DAA Northwest continues to improve
facilities and increase services, including online Simulcast and Event
Sales via PipelineSimulcast.
DAA Northwest is deeply involved in supporting the greater community while
maintaining a strong focus on the city of Spokane. The auction supports a
number of local non-profit organizations, with our largest annual
contributions stemming from November's Anniversary Sale fundraiser.
Together with DAA Seattle, KCI Kansas City and EPI El Paso, DAA Northwest is part of the McConkey Auction Group.
