Fifteen years ago, I joined Mitch-Stuart to serve the non-profit community and help them raise money. Within six months, I experienced firsthand the impact professional auctioneers made on a non-profit organization’s success.

Over time I learned more about the industry, earned my BAS designation, and attended the Benefit Auction Summit and Conference & Show—all of which solidified this simple truth: The auction industry, in all its forms, is populated with thousands of phenomenal people doing everything they can to make their respective market a better place for business. By doing so, they were growing their businesses and helping the industry expand.

I am now a Trustee of the Foundation to be a part of that. It’s not about me or what I will receive from the experience; it’s about being of service and expecting nothing in return.
