Kirk Dove - Managing Partner
Kirk Dove is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Heritage Global Partners. Mr. Dove brings over 25 years of experience to the position, having served as President of GoIndustry-DoveBid*, President of DoveBid*, President of DoveBrothers, President of Koll-Dove and President of Ross-Dove Company.
During his career, he has pioneered the industry, changing the way auction events are signed, marketed and conducted. Mr. Dove's innovations included introducing corporations to sign forward flow multi-event contracts, changing the industry compensation structure from client fee, seller-based to a buyer's premium platform; introducing webcast style auctions, merging voice and video, and broadcasting to worldwide audiences over the internet; the origination of featured online sales; the creation of vertical sector sale events; and migrating to a paperless world of electronic marketing and notification for all events. With these innovations, the marketplace over time indeed followed suit.
Mr. Dove has represented many of the following companies in multiple auction sales, personally contracting and conducting major events with Apple, FDIC, Adidas, Applied Magnetics, AST Research, Bank of America, Boeing, Businessland, Compaq, Computerland, Davong, ElectroRent, General Electric, Hewlett-Packard, Hughes, IBM, Janus Disc, Kollmorgan, Lockheed Martin, LSI, Martin Marrietta, NCR, Oread, Packard Bell, Pfizer, Quantum, Raytheon, Smucker's New Era, Solyndra, Sony, Storage Tek, Tektronix, Tyco, Vision Tech, Wang, Xerox, Zenith and many more.
...
In addition to sales of capital assets, Mr. Dove was the lead auctioneer in scores of commercial real estate and non-performing loan portfolio sales for the nation's largest money center banks, the RTC, and the FDIC. These landmark sales generated over 1 billion dollars, garnered worldwide recognition, and took their place in the ranks of the highest grossing auctions in U.S. history.
Prior to Ross-Dove Company, Mr. Dove was employed at Merrill Lynch for several years as a Senior Account Executive, where he directed a client base of over 600 individuals and businesses. He holds a Bachelors of Sciences degree in Business from Northern Illinois University, and is a Senior ASA Member of the American Society of Appraisers. In addition, he is a longstanding member of the National Auctioneers Association.

Kirk Dove (KD): There seems to be no shortage of asset sale opportunities-lots of plant closings, downsizings, etc. Plus the successful companies that re-tool still need a disposition process for the equipment they are replacing.

I had a family auction company ...

I had a family auction company called Dove Brothers that my brother Kirk and I took over from our Grandfather and Dad.
...
My brother, Kirk, joined our board and we were told we needed a CTO immediately. Neither of us even knew that "CTO" stood for "Chief Technology Officer," until he had thirty engineers and the six million was gone.
In those days, building the website cost a fortune, because people stayed up all night coding and recoding and saying the redundant back bone was not scalable for launch. At the next board meeting, the CTO informed us that it was a joke and embarrassment to work for an under capitalized start up and he couldn't afford to stay unless we were serious. To prove how serious we were we gave him six percent of the company and promised we would raise a Series B and give him as many millions as he wanted.
...
Off I went on a press road show and completely abandoned the old auction business to Kirk Dove. While he was signing auctions to pay for the old people I was out doing photo shoots on press tours. Boy was I cool. I actually made the cover of Forbes. Back at the ranch, Kirk had really made headway. Our website was a great compromise of his pragmatic approach to merging old line auctions with webcasts and he had created featured online auctions that were actually working.
We now had content and eyeballs but the board said we must immediately change our strategy and adapt to the new B2B market. All of a sudden, it still didn't matter how much money we lost but we now must have a very rapid quarter over quarter sequential growth. Nobody, including the smart people or the really smart people, knew how to do that. They said that only Kirk and I can do that part because we had "domain knowledge.
...
But my brother Kirk stayed by my side and we fought long and hard.
...
As you all know I am proud to be back in the IAA and along with my brother Kirk, we are proud to form Heritage Global Partners, and continue our family legacy.
