McConkey Auction Group Expands

By Staff Writer August 19, 2020

McConkey Auction Group (MAG) is excited to announce its expansion into the southwestern United States via Dealers Auto Auction of Las Vegas. MAG’s partnership with DAA Las Vegas’ Dan Thomas and Russ Norrish adds a third physical auction location to the organization.

DAA Las Vegas is the only independent wholesale auto auction in the greater Las Vegas marketplace. The six-lane auction was founded by auction veterans Thomas and Norrish six years ago and is poised for growth. Both will remain with the company as DAA Las Vegas’ Vice President/Partner and Managing Partner, respectively.

“Russ and I started our careers in the auction industry 46 years ago,” said Thomas. “We were working for my father, who founded Golden Gate Auto Auction. Shortly afterward, we met Bob and have been personal friends and business associates ever since. It’s hard to believe that the three of us have 132 years of collective auction experience.”

Thomas and Norrish said they are eager to work with MAG on expanding the auction.

“After all these years in the business, we now have the chance to work together,” Norrish said. “I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career – this is going to be fun!”

Bob McConkey, CEO and President of McConkey Auction Group, said he is excited about the potential of the Las Vegas market and looks forward to working alongside Thomas, Norrish and their team.
