Manheim Appoints Three New General Managers in the East Region
Promotions include the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Carolina Market Centers

ATLANTA, Ga. (March 15, 2022) – Manheim tapped into the company’s leadership talent in Q1, appointing three new general managers with deep experience serving their clients, team members and communities. They include:

DiAngelo Brooks has been promoted to general manager for Manheim Harrisonburg, which is part of the Manheim Mid-Atlantic Market Center that includes Manheim Fredericksburg, Manheim Baltimore-Washington and Manheim Harrisonburg. With a love for automobiles that began at his grandfather's salvage yard working as an unpaid parts puller, Brooks joined Manheim in 2010 as an OVE sales coordinator and was promoted to field sales manager for Virginia and Maryland in 2011. Most recently, he was assistant general manager at Manheim Fredericksburg where the location won the “Best Auction of the Year” award from 2016 through 2019.

David Carlucci has been promoted to general manager for Manheim New England, which is part of the Manheim Northeast Market Center that also includes Manheim New York and Manheim Albany. He previously served as the location’s assistant general manager since 2014, where he was responsible for all aspects of auction operations. Carlucci’s 20-plus year career in the auction industry also includes numerous roles in marketing, factory coordinator, dealer services, auction manager, general manager, and corporate national sales.

Charlie Clarke has been promoted to general manager for Manheim Darlington, which is part of the Manheim Carolina Market Center that also includes Manheim North Carolina and Manheim Wilmington. Clarke joined Manheim after college in 2001, beginning at Manheim Tennessee in Lot Operations before transitioning to various roles including arbitration, financial services and commercial accounts. While there, he helped start the location’s Total Resource Auctions (TRA) salvage sale as well as holding the role of inside sales manager. Following the auction’s merger with Manheim Nashville, Clarke held several manager-level positions before being promoted to assistant general manager in 2016.

“As the industry and our business continue to evolve, we continue to look to our talented leaders to drive innovative solutions for our clients and our company,” said Matt Trapp, regional vice president, East Region. “All three have proven records of success in their regions and we look forward to seeing the ongoing contributions we know they’ll make in their new roles.”
