Making Memories and Building a Strong Team at Annual CDS National Conference

CDS, or Copart Dealer Services, is a division of Copart that works to increase inventory through sales.  CDS works closely with independent and franchise dealerships, dismantlers, wholesalers, and tow businesses to remarket their units.

This August, everyone in CDS, including all CDS Division Managers from across the U.S. and Canada, joined together in Las Vegas for their annual National Conference.

This year the conference featured speakers like Copart CEO Jay Adair, Copart Executive Vice President Will Franklin, VP of Vehicle Replacement Greg Lubrani and many other influential leaders covering a variety of topics. As an interactive activity, each CDS Regional Manager collaborated with their respective teams and gave a presentation on a particular part of the field manager’s day.

This was a special year for the CDS Conference because Jessie Perez, GM of yard 11, Janice Garman, CDS CSR of yard 47, Leblenda Tutson, CDS CSR of yard 11, and Carolina Valdez, CDS CSR of yard 45 also attended our conference. These employees play a vital role in the success of CDS and the satisfaction of our customers.

This conference serves an important purpose by allowing all CDS employees to come to together, collaborate, get to know each other and recharge batteries after a busy year. Check out the conference’s highlight of events and featured photos:
