National Pawnbrokers Association Presents Annual Award to Leaderato at Pawn Expo in Las Vegas

Southlake, TX – The National Pawnbrokers Association (NPA) announced today the selection of Leaderato as the 2019 NPA Industry Partner of the Year. The San Diego-based firm, headed up by pawn industry educator, Yigal Adato, was recognized at the Annual Awards Luncheon during Pawn Expo 2019, the only national convention and trade show for the pawn industry, held at The Mirage Las Vegas.

Leaderato, which operates Pawn Leaders and The Pawn Leaders Podcast, has supported the NPA as an industry partner since 2018. Yigal, a former third generation pawnbroker, has educated pawnbrokers on customer retention, increasing pawn loan balances, and has inspired pawnbrokers to network on a business and personal level. 

Mr. Adato is a widely respected consultant servicing pawnbrokers across the U.S. Yigal developed the online training platform, Pawn Leaders, which offers pawnbroker and pawn operations educational courses. Yigal’s mission is to ignite, teach, and guide business owners to make more, stress less, and have more time doing what they love. He is also a mentor and public speaker in the “leadership” space.

The NPA Industry Partner of the Year Award is presented annually to an NPA Industry Partner who, through their performance and dedication, has shown significant support of the association and its members.
