National Powersport Auctions (NPA) continues to build upon the best team in the business by promoting from within. Buffy Huffman moves up to general manager in the Atlanta, GA, facility.

“There is nobody better qualified to help lead the team in Georgia than Buffy,” said NPA VP of operations, Jeff Kinney. “She started full time as a consignment administrator with NPA back in 2005 and has been working with the dealers and financial institutions on a daily basis since then.”

Back in 1997, NPA opened their second facility in Atlanta to meet dealer needs in the Southeast.

“Over the years, the auction lanes in Atlanta have become the busiest in the nation, and Buffy is the right person to run things,” Kinney added. “Not only is she NPA’s first ever female GM, she started as a ‘flag girl’ several years ago and quickly rose the ranks.”

“I was originally introduced to NPA back in 2003 when I worked part time during the monthly auction in Atlanta as a flag girl,” Huffman said.  “After a few months, I was given the opportunity to work in the office assisting dealers on auction day. At the time, the powersport industry was all very new to me. However, there was something about working at NPA, and the people there that drove me to want to be a part of the team. So, when the opportunity arose for a full-time position in Atlanta in 2005, I didn’t hesitate.”

The rest is history as Huffman worked her way through the ranks.

“Since then, I have developed an extensive amount of knowledge and admiration for the powersport industry because of NPA. Over the years, NPA has given me the opportunity to learn many aspects of the business starting with marketing and consignments, and then later being a part of the training and growth for new NPA locations. Here we are 15 years later, and now I have been given the opportunity to fill a new role as GM for the Atlanta facility,” Huffman added. “I am beyond excited about this promotion within the company and being a part of the leadership team as NPA continues to grow. To be given this opportunity to be the first female GM means everything to me, and I hope that this will inspire others in knowing that if you are dedicated, hardworking, and passionate about what you do, all things are possible.”

“I have a passion for this company and what we do for the powersport industry, and I couldn’t imagine working with a better team than the one we have here at NPA,” Huffman said.
