RICHMOND, Va., June 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CarLotz (NASDAQ: LOTZ), the nation’s largest consignment-to-retail used vehicle marketplace, has opened a new hub in Charlottesville, Va., located at 1389 Richmond Road. The Charlottesville opening marks the fourth hub in CarLotz’s home state of Virginia and the 12th nationwide.
Charlottesville native and former manager of CarLotz’s Midlothian hub, Ned Gallaway, will oversee day-to-day operations of the new location. “We couldn’t be happier to open a hub in Charlottesville and to have it under the management of Ned Gallaway,” said Michael Bor, Co-Founder and CEO of CarLotz. “Ned has been an important part of the CarLotz family, leading our Midlothian team to significant growth. Our opening in Charlottesville is a win-win for us and Ned, personally. The local team will benefit from his leadership, and Ned is able to work every day in the community to which he is so dedicated to serving as part of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors,” Bor continued.
