ServNet Eyes Organizational Changes for 2008

The ServNet Auction Group has announced that it has formed a strategic alliance with TPC Management Company as part of a long-term growth and development plan that will launch the group’s 20th Anniversary year.  According to ServNet’s president, Keith Lelux, TPC Management will provide ServNet with a full-time executive and administrative staff, headed by Pierre Pons serving as ServNet’s Chief Executive Officer; Richard Curtis as Executive Vice President, Industry Relations; Tom Stewart, as Executive Vice President, Business Development; and Penny Wanna, as Office Manager.

 “ServNet’s Board of Directors has been working diligently for the past five months to develop a new organizational plan that will best serve the needs of both our customers and member auctions as well as accommodate the growth we expect as we move into our third decade,” said Lelux.  “After very frank discussions with a number of our customers last summer in Coeur d’Alene , Idaho , we set a primary goal to establish a national headquarters for the ServNet auction group, with a full-time staff that would include both an administrative executive and an account management team.  We are very pleased to announce that we will accomplish those objectives with Pierre Pons and his team at TPC Management.”

Lelux explained that TPC Management will handle a number of critical responsibilities for ServNet, including representing the group at all industry functions and events, coordinating customer exposure, managing communications to and from national accounts, facilitating meetings, coordinating brand awareness and sponsorship activities, providing industry intelligence and managing vendors. TPC will maintain ServNet’s national office in Franklin , Tennessee .

“We are very excited to have this opportunity to work with the ServNet,” said Pons.  “We have worked closely with many of the auction owners on an individual basis over the years, and have served as recruiters of record for ServNet, having placed the last two executive directors.  We are delighted to partner with the group as they mark their 20th anniversary year and working with ServNet’s board to carry out their directives.  Our experience in the auction industry has shown us that ServNet auctions stand out not just from other independent auctions, but from the entire auction community.  Going forward, we are eager to share with the industry our vision that ServNet Auctions are quite simply the best auctions, from coast to coast.”
