Laura WehuntVice President, Automotive Valuations
Laura started at Black Book in 2012 as a Data Analyst, after completing her masters at Clemson University in Applied Economics and Statistics. During her time in this role, she was integral in the running of our residual model and working with the Automotive Analysts to incorporate their feedback in our art-and-science approach to data. After 2 years, she moved to the “art” side of the business and began attending auctions, speaking with industry personnel, and evaluating the latest vehicles on the market, as well as taking on responsibility for adjusting wholesale values on a daily basis. She was able to use her knowledge from her first role with the company to improve the communication and feedback between the two teams. She progressed within the department to become Vice President of Automotive Valuations earlier this year and is responsible for the light duty, medium and heavy duty trucks and trailers, powersports, RV, and collectible car markets.
