Ron Packer

Vice President, Auction Operations

I take great pride in leading our meticulous and efficient setup team to clean, organize, write-up, and photograph all machinery and equipment for sale. As the point-person for all onsite operations, I am readily available to address inquiries related to machinery. My professional journey started at Steelcase, a major office furniture manufacturer, where I held leadership positions in various manufacturing departments for over 22 years. Additionally, I owned a residential real estate appraisal business for 10 years and founded the Refuel Group to drive the development of a unique sustainability program for a waste-to-energy biofuel system. Through my diverse experiences, I have gained invaluable expertise and a strong focus on operational excellence.
