The move follows the sale last week of Polk to Autocom A/S, the owner of Autorola. Autocom operates online auctions in eight European countries and launched Autorola.co.uk last year in the UK. It enables fleets, dealers, leasing companies and private individuals to remarket vehicles to more than 1,000 registered dealers.
The new business, Autorola Global Remarketing, will be headed by Mike Crocker. It will continue to support current Polk customers.
CORRECTION: RL POLK
An article on p9 of our August 11 issue, entitled “Autorola and Polk create new business”, incorrectly states in the second paragraph that RL Polk had been sold to Autocom A/S. In fact it is only its Global Remarketing operation which has been sold, not the parent company. AM apologises for the error.
