Kevin Lambright to retire from Shipshewana Auction

Shipshewana Auction, Inc. announced on September 2 that Kevin Lambright, co-owner of Shipshewana Auction, Inc., will be retiring.

Some time ago, Lambright began considering his interests and future plans, and how best to maintain long-term family ownership of the business with one brother becoming less involved. “Kevin has always been a farmer at heart and will now be engaged in farming full time with his son,” said brother Keith Lambright Thursday morning.

Keith Lambright intends to continue his work at Shipshewana Auction Inc., and has agreed to purchase his brother’s interest in the business which includes the Shipshewana Auction and Flea Market, Shipshewana Miscellaneous and Antique Auction, Shipshewana Antique Mall, Shipshewana RV Park, Farmstead Inn and Conference Center, Shipshewana Auction Restaurant, and Shipshewana Livestock and Horse Auction.

“I plan to continue operating the business in much the way it has operated for years, and we have a good management team in place running the operational business functions,” stated Keith Lambright.

Kevin plans to stay full-time through the end of October and continue in a consulting capacity for some period of time in the future. “I am committed to a smooth transition and will be available as needed,” adds Kevin Lambright.

In addition to the Trading Place, Kevin serves on the Board of Directors of Parkview LaGrange Hospital and Farmers State Bank among other interests.

The company’s press release says that Shipshewana Auction, Inc. is committed to serving its employees, vendors, and the community and plans to fulfill its mission for years to come of bringing together sellers and buyers while ensuring mutual satisfaction for all parties.
