Shawn Hagler resides in Hudson, Colorado, with his wife and son. He has been in the auction business for over 16 years. After spending the past nine years traveling on over 200 flights a year and working five auto auctions weekly in four different states, Shawn decided to slow down, be at home more, and shift his business focus more to his Fundraising Auction business along with starting a new venture. He currently owns and operates Hagler Auction Group, working with non-profits and other fundraisers, along with working weekly at Insurance Auto Auctions, traveling the country as a ringman for Mecum Collector and Classic Car Auctions, and co-founding World Champion Ringman College. He feels that he has been blessed in the auction business and wants to give back to the profession that has given so much to him.
Shawn first joined the Colorado Auctioneer Association in 2003 where he won the Troil Welton Memorial Bid Calling award for first time members. Shortly thereafter he found his way into the Auto Auction industry and discovered his love for the fast paced and demanding car auction world. In 2008 he won the Colorado State Bid Calling Championship, 2009 WAAC World Champion Ringman and in January won the first ever CAA Challenge of Champions Bid Calling Championship.
Shawn is a member of the National Auctioneers Association, The Colorado Auctioneers Association, and the Wyoming Auctioneers Association.
