Los Angeles, CA – February 19, 2014 – Westlake Financial Services announces Kansas City Independent Auto Auction as the 2013 Auction of the Year. The second and third ranked auctions include Adesa Phoenix and Adesa San Antonio, and the top service auction is Adesa Colorado Springs.

Westlake’s top auctions are chosen by narrowing the top 24 volume sales across the U.S. After that the auctions are evaluated based on scorecards that measure their sales effectiveness and service quality. Kansas City Independent Auto Auction has proven effective in these areas.

“We recognize the loyalty of these top auctions and appreciate their dedication to Westlake and our dealerships,” states Ian Anderson, President of Westlake Financial. “Kansas City Independent Auto Auction has surpassed our expectations and is a consistent partner for Westlake.”
