Warren Young Fellowship
The Warren Young Fellowship was created in honor of Warren Young, Sr., a pioneer of the auto auction industry. The award recognizes major contributions to the National Auto Auction Association and acknowledges sustaining support for the NAAA Warren Young, Sr. Scholastic Foundation, Inc. goal of improving access to post secondary education through scholarships and educational assistance.
Warren Young, Sr., known as a pioneer in the field of auto auctions, retired from Manheim in 1992 after serving in the auto auction industry for more than 35 years.
In 1962, he worked as general manager of the National Dealers Exchange in Bordentown, New Jersey, later purchased by Manheim’s parent, Cox Enterprises. Four years later he became vice president of Manheim Services Corporation, followed by executive vice president and in 1975, was named president, of Manheim. In 1991, he engineered the purchase of the General Electric Auction Group, taking Manheim from 26 to 46 auctions.
Today, he serves as the National Auto Auction Association’s president-emeritus and, since 1962, has selflessly served the NAAA, including as president (1973-1974), secretary, and treasurer. In 1983, he was inducted into the NAAA Hall of Fame, and in 2007, the NAAA scholastic foundation was renamed the NAAA Warren Young, Sr. Scholastic Foundation, Inc. in his honor.
