Bob Gaito

Chief Executive Officer

Bob has an impressive track record of creating and growing several businesses. He formed his first organization, I-Centrix, in 2000, selling it to Haggin Marketing in 2007. His next startup, 4Cite Marketing, would eventually be acquired by one of the largest media companies in the world, Dentsu Aegis. Bob’s founding of Auction Central came about just as every other venture had, by noticing a gap in technology and its relation to the customer’s immediate needs. He is a dealer owner himself, and could not find an auction that had the transparency and customer interface that he desired, so…he made one! Bob’s best feeling is when he hears a dealer say, “Finally, this is exactly what I was looking for… Why isn’t anyone else offering this!?”

 

Patrick Lyga

Patrick has been in the automotive business for over a decade and brings an array of knowledge and experience to Auction Central. He has acted as the General Manager of six manufacturer franchises and currently co-owns/manages an independent dealership in Upstate, NY. Having held every role in variable operations, he understands the complete wholesale car buying experience and aims to bring full transparency to the buying process. He is extremely customer-oriented and wants nothing more than to create lasting relationships.
