Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions announced today that the company has agreed to a long-term contract extension with current well-known Barrett-Jackson lead auctioneer Joseph Mast. Mast has led a world-class auction team at Barrett-Jackson collector car events since 2015 and has been a part of the team since 2009.
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Joseph and our industry-leading auction team,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We have long been at the forefront of the collector car industry, and alongside an extraordinary auction team led by Joseph, we look forward to continuing to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our bidders, consignors and guests in attendance, as well as the millions of viewers watching around the world.”
An Ohio native, Mast began his auction career in Amish Country of rural Holmes County, Ohio. Since that time, Mast has become a champion auctioneer and industry icon. He has served on the National Auctioneers Association Board of Directors and received the highest designation an auctioneer can receive from the Certified Auctioneers Institute (CAI).
“Barrett-Jackson has been the leader in collector car auctions for more than 50 years and it is an honor to extend our valued partnership with them,” said Mast. “It is truly a privilege to collaborate with Carolyn and Craig Jackson, as well as the entire Barrett-Jackson team, to produce The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions. We are grateful for their trust in our team and it is our goal to continue to bring internationally recognized auctioneers to represent our craft on such an iconic stage.”
Having raised over $147 million for charity to date, Barrett-Jackson’s commitment to philanthropy is well-regarded within the industry. Together with Barrett-Jackson leadership, including Craig Jackson and Steve Davis, Mast has been a part of many charitable endeavors both on and off the auction block.
“In addition to the millions of dollars raised for charitable organizations at Barrett-Jackson auctions, Joseph has also worked alongside us outside of our auctions to support numerous charity events around the country,” said Carolyn Jackson, Barrett-Jackson Vice President of Brand Strategy and Chief Philanthropy Officer. “Together we have worked to raise important funds and awareness for many incredible causes.”
Mast will join Barrett-Jackson once again in the Entertainment Capital of the World for the 2022 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 30-July 2.
