WESTCHESTER, Ill., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA) the leading live and live-online salvage auto auction company and wholly-owned subsidiary of KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), today announced its partnership with SkillsUSA®, a national nonprofit organization designed to ensure America has a skilled workforce through serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled-service occupations. To date, IAA, along with its sister company, ADESA, combined has donated $100,000 in support of the key leadership development programming and the organization's overall mission. The two companies are proud sponsors of the inaugural "TAG Tuesday" Delegate Training Program.  The "TAG Tuesday" program will provide student delegates attending the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Missouri this month with leadership and networking opportunities that will allow them to "Train, Act, and Grow" into better professionals.

Underscoring the company's support of the organization, John Kett, president and chief financial officer at IAA, was recently appointed a committee member of the Youth Development Foundation of SkillsUSA Inc.

"Working closely with an organization such as SkillsUSA is good news for the automotive industry's future labor force -- no matter which side of the car's life cycle you manage," said John Kett, president and chief financial officer at Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. "This strong partnership enables us to support an important industry group that focuses on developing our nation's young, future leaders, while enabling us to reach key talent though internship and mentoring opportunities. We're proud to play an active role by providing funding in addition to working directly with local chapters and state associations and providing student internships. The reality is these young people will have the opportunity to gain leadership skills and hands-on job experience."
