E Automotive Inc. dba E INC and EBlock, an E INC brand, promoted Lisa Scott from chief revenue officer to president of EBlock to help the company create a unified land and technology leadership structure for agility and focus on delivering on its land-meets-technology vision.
“Our goal is to create a single marketplace that brings land and technology together so dealers can transact where and how they prefer," said E INC CEO Jason McClenahan.
"Since Lisa joined the company one year ago, she has been laser-focused on building a strong team to deliver on this goal. She’s been instrumental in bringing our land-meets-tech vision to life, from our operations and services to our best-in-class digital platform. This move to president is a natural progression for her and the company to take the next leap. The timing is perfect, considering we’ve just expanded our presence through the acquisition of Houston Auto Auction ... and as we continue to build our presence in the Louisiana and Michigan markets.”
Before joining E INC, Scott served as the president of PAR North America, a nationwide provider of vehicle transition services, for over four years, and she has also served as chief client officer at ADESA Canada. Scott is recognized as a skilled, knowledgeable and visionary leader with a track record of motivating her team and delivering strong results in all aspects of the automotive business, professional auctioneering, and auction-management businesses.
“I am thrilled to be taking on this new role in such a dynamic company,” Scott said. “Our culture, technology and team are truly unique to this industry, and I know we will continue to add value to our partners in the future. EBlock is an extremely viable solution, and I am committed to strengthening and refining our offerings in different wholesale verticals, as well as introducing our first-to-market solution, LiveLanes.”
Enabled by LiveLanes, EBlock will be a combined auction platform bringing together digital and physical inventory. The innovation allows dealers to buy and sell on-site and off-site inventory in the same auction event.
E INC's overarching land-meets-tech strategy consists of acquiring profitable physical auction assets in the company's focused regional markets and integrating them onto the EBlock digital wholesale marketplace platform. EBlock's dealer-to-dealer digital marketplace expands and enhances the reach of a physical auction to attract more sellers and buyers across a broader market. Connecting physical auctions and digital auctions across single platform creates a network of logistics hubs and improves the flexibility offered to customers to do business where and how they prefer it.
