Industry veteran Ken Garbez VP of Operations for High Tech Locksmiths
Industry veteran Ken Garbez has been promoted to new role as Vice President of Operations for High Tech Locksmiths.
"Ken will be a great asset to High Tech Locksmiths," says Jay Wiener, HTL CEO. "He is an auto industry veteran who possesses a unique ability to efficiently and effectively manage operational functions while also building and maintaining strong relationships both inside and outside the company."
Garbez has more than 25 years of experience in the automotive industry, with 12 years spent at ADESA, a business unit of KAR Auction Services, who acquired HTL, the largest provider of transponder, remote, high-security and car smart keys in North America, in January of this year.
He has held various management roles at ADESA in the areas of operations, reconditioning and transportation, including assistant general manager at ADESA Golden Gate, and most recently, at ADESA Las Vegas.
"HTL has experienced consistent and steady growth, and Ken's addition to our team will allow us to reach even more customers across the KAR business units from our nationwide locations," said Wiener.
