    President & Owner

    William started washing cars at Layfield Ford in the summer when he was 14 years old.  His father, Bill Talley had become the GM at Layfield and eventually bought the store, changing the name to Bill Talley Ford in 1972. 

    William worked in many positions at the dealership until he graduated Cum Laude from the University of Richmond School of Business in Business Management in 1978. William became the General Manager that same year and later became the President and Owner of Bill Talley Ford. William's creed is that if you take care of your employees and customers at the highest level, the business will take care of itself.

  • James Lynch
    Sales Associate
    804-746-2000

    James grew up a military brat because his father was in the Army. By the time he was twelve he had lived in Germany, Ohio, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia. When Jame's Dad retired, they settled in Crewe, Virginia, which I now call home. Crewe is a small town in the country where everyone is friendly and everyone knows everybody. 

    After James left home and graduated from the University of Virginia, he went to work for a radio station in Farmville selling advertising. He had an eight county territory which he thought was a lot at the time. About a year later he answered an ad for a marketing position in Richmond. When he interviewed he found out they meant door-to-door marketing ranging across 17 states from here to Texas. James took the job for a few years and said the most surprising thing he learned was that most people were friendly, whether they bought the product or not.

    About 25 years ago, James had a friend in the car business who reached out to him. His friend said, "You don't have to go to anyone's door, they come right to you at the dealership!", James was sold! He said the best part about working at Bill Talley Ford is everyone is friendly and everyone knows everyone...just like back home!
