Experienced Additions to NPA RV and Marine Services

Shannon Bennett joins in Florida, and Tom Wilkinson steps up in Georgia.

National Powersport Auctions (NPA) has developed two new positions to better serve its RV and marine clients. In Florida, NPA welcomed Shannon Bennett as the RV and marine sales and admin coordinator, and in Georgia, Tom Wilkinson, an employee since 2005, is now the production supervisor for RV and marine and specialty product.

Bennett Brings Performance

Bennett is an outdoor enthusiast who brings diverse skills and experience within relatable industries, such as the automotive and trailer businesses. She has no fear of adventure, from jet skiing to sky diving. Her fondest outdoor memories are of a 28-foot Bayliner named “Nauti Girl” she captained in Lake Erie. “Life is crazy, but having fun in life is what makes it all worthwhile. The people I have met within the powersports industry know what that’s about,” said Bennett.

Bennett has over a decade of working in financial institutions and banks. She stated, “My sales and logistics background has equipped me with the ability to coordinate complex operations seamlessly. With my dedication to exceptional customer service, I am well-prepared to significantly impact the powersports field.”

In this newly formed position, Bennett can utilize her diverse skillset and background to contribute to the growth and expansion of the NPA RV and marine division.

“Increasing the RV and marine staff will allow us to serve our lenders, OEMs and dealers better,” said Matt Amata, NPA vice president of RV and marine. “I’m thrilled to have Shannon helping with the logistics and communications. She’s a great addition to the team.”

Wilkinson Steps Up

“Tom has been with NPA for almost 20 years and is an asset to the team. I am excited to see him take off in this new role,” said Jeff Kinney, NPA vice president of operations.

Wilkinson’s pre-delivery inspector and service writer experience paved the way for him to be instrumental in NPA’s data collection and processing. He has fine-tuned the world-renowned NPA Condition Reports to cater to the unique attributes of both RVs and boats. “I am looking forward to being a part of the team that is working so hard to build the RV and marine division and a program that becomes the new industry standard,” said Wilkinson.
