Butch Graham joins Jeff Martin Auctioneers as Pipeline and Energy Consultant

Brooklyn, Miss. --- Jeff Martin Auctioneers is pleased to introduce Pipeline Hall of Fame member, veteran, and industry legend Butch Graham as a Pipeline and Energy Consultant.
Graham, known as the “voice of the pipeline industry,” has been in the auction industry since 1971. He grew up in the auction industry, where his father worked in marketing livestock auctions, and his uncle, cousin, and brother worked as auctioneers. Through the years, Graham made a name for himself in the oil and gas pipeline industry and was heavily involved with the industry’s trade organizations, specifically the Distribution Contractors Association (DCA), the International Pipeline and Offshore Contractors Association (IPLOCA), and the Pipe Line Contractors Association (PLCA).
After 50 years in the industry, Graham retired in 2021 but missed the action too much. He liked the way Jeff was building relationships and moving across the country. “The more I talked with Jeff, the more I was impressed,” said Graham. “I saw that Jeff was not only driven, but he also lived by the ethic of making the customer your friend because your friend will always be your customer.”
Known for his honesty and integrity, Graham’s equipment knowledge and market expertise is an asset to Jeff Martin Auctioneers. He knows what is currently going on in the industry and applies that knowledge to the equipment he is selling, allowing buyers to be confident when bidding.
“We are looking forward to working with a legend within the auction business and pipeline and energy industry,” commented Jeff Martin, CEO. “The addition of Butch is a resource that will serve our current and future clients as we continue to grow.”
Jeff Martin Auctioneers is North America's fastest-growing live auction company with four fully staffed offices and 12 auction sites nationwide. In 2021, the Jeff Martin Family of Companies conducted over 200 live and online auctions in 15 states.
