Marietta's John Dixon elected to Auctioneers Hall of Fame
ATLANTA, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- John Dixon, founder and president of Marietta-based John Dixon & Associates, was inducted into the National Auctioneers Association's Hall of Fame Thursday night when the nation's auction professionals met in Indianapolis for their annual convention.
Dixon was one of three individuals named to the prestigious body, which has admitted only 140 members in its entire history.
"Apparently, everybody in the company knew but me, which is the way it's supposed to be," said Dixon. "I did notice we had more people from John Dixon & Associates than usual attending the convention, but I didn't think anything of it. It is one of the greatest honors of my life, and I'm humbled by the recognition."
Announcing Dixon's name during ceremonies at the Indianapolis Convention Center was veteran auctioneer Joe Tarpley, who is an agent with John Dixon & Associates.
Dixon has been in the auction business since 1976 and has served in numerous leadership roles in the industry, including service as a director of the NAA and as president of the Georgia Auctioneers Association. He has been instrumental in the sale of thousands of residential and commercial properties for individuals and banks throughout the United States, as well as for the Resolution Trust Corp., the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), and the FDIC.
John Dixon & Associates, based in Marietta, Ga., is a leading auctioneer of bank-owned properties throughout the United States. Individuals seeking additional information may contact the firm at 770-425-1141 or visit www.johndixon.com.
