  • James Lynch
    Sales Associate
    804-746-2000

    I grew up a military brat because my father was in the Army. By the time I was twelve we had lived in Germany, Ohio, New Jersey, Maryland and even Virginia. When my dad retired, we settled in Crewe, Virginia, which I call home. Crewe is a small town in the country where everyone is friendly and everyone knows everybody.

    After I left home and graduated from the University of Virginia, I went to work for a radio station in Farmville selling advertising. I had an eight county territory which I thought was a lot at the time. About a year later I answered an ad for a marketing position in Richmond. When I interviewed, I found they meant door-to-door marketing in 17 states from here to Texas. I thought 'I bet I can I do this and I bet it will be a lot of fun.' Turned out I could do it, for years in fact, and the most surprising thing I learned was most people were friendly, whether they bought the product or not.

    One day, 25 years ago, a friend of mine in the car business, asked if I had thought of working in the car business. He said you don't have to go to anyone's door, they come right here to the dealership. I thought this would be fun and some years later here at Bill Talley Ford, it is. I work in a family owned car business, most people are friendly and everyone knows everyone, just like in the country.
