“I joined Bright Star Auctions in 2019 after 17 years in the power-sports industry. I started on the bottom rung doing anything from driving, washing trucks and trailers, doing ring work, and setting up auctions. After getting the equipment auctions up and going at our home yard in Middlebury, I was offered the option to become a full-time equipment specialist and can say with no hesitation that it was the best decision I have ever made in my professional career. I now am a full-time equipment specialist and auctioneer and absolutely love being here at Bright Star Auctions.”
