Staff Announcement

February 12, 2018

NAFA is pleased to announce that we have hired Ralph Griffo to join our dynamic team of auctioneers, starting at our February auction. In addition to his auctioneering duties, Ralph will be working with our rancher services department, visiting ranchers, and helping to coordinate the transition of former ALC shippers to NAFA.

Ralph is a fur industry veteran, coming to NAFA with over 43 years of experience. He started his career in 1974 with Hudson’s Bay New York, and continued with the company through its transition to North American Fur Auctions in the early 1990’s. In 1995, he joined American Legend, where he progressed through a variety of roles such as lead auctioneer and ranch fur solicitor. His most recent position at ALC was that of Vice President/Chief Auctioneer.

“While Ralph is very well respected in both the ranching and buying communities, it is the long-term relationships that he has developed with many of the North American ranchers that make him a valuable addition to our team,” said Michael Mengar, President and CEO.

Please join us in welcoming Ralph back to the NAFA family.
