I've had the pleasure of working for Bob Poynter in Seymour since 1997 and recently took the opportunity to invest as owner and partner of the Bob Poynter Columbus dealership It is our goal to set ourselves apart from all other dealers with our service, inventory, pricing and relationships. One of my greatest talents and joys is the ability to get to know our customers. I know the value of hard work having graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a double major in business and accounting, while playing football all four years. I'm married to Stephanee and have four boys, Jack, Jake, Joe, and Jude. Jack will be attending Indiana State University. Jake is a senior in high school. Joe is in sixth grade and our youngest, Jude, is in preschool.

I LOVE THE CAR BUSINESS! I have loved the car business since I detailed cars and pulled weeds here at Bob Poynter Family of Dealerships as a teenager. My father was a salesman at Bob Poynter's for 49 years, and I always loved going into the dealership with him. After graduating from Indiana University in 1997, I started my own career selling cars at Bob Poynter. I became a partner in 2009 and we have since expanded into four stores with 11 brands. I have been married to my best friend, and beautiful wife, Carrie since 1998. We have three amazing children Olivia, Hannah and Smith. I love to travel, hike, golf and spend time with my family. Our philosophy here at Bob Poynter has always been high volume sales at low prices! We believe it is not just a dealership, it is a relationship. Thanks to all our past and current customers and welcome to anyone new to the Bob Poynter Family of Dealerships.

I've taken care of this community for over 20 years. I hope I am able to help for another 20. I'm lucky enough to work for a dealership that takes care of their customers. I aim to improve our status here in Columbus with the aid of every one here.The training we go through at Bob Poynter puts us above our competitors. Becoming a car sales guy was a hard decision because I've been to dealerships before. I remember how I felt at the dealerships and swore I did not want to become one of those individuals. Now I have the chance to treat our customers with the respect and honesty I've always wanted. If you need service, a vehicle or just another crash course on how your vehicle functions I'll be happy to help. Thank you for letting us take care of you and welcome to our family.

I am originally from Minnesota, but have lived in Columbus for over 25 years.  My wife Carla and I have two grown children - Courtnie and Mike, and a rather large Newfoundland dog named Winston. I am a member of East Columbus Christian Church and enjoy flea marketing, gardening, woodworking and golfing. I like living in Columbus and the diverse cultures that are represented here.
My goal is to treat every customer like family and build long-term business relationships with all my clients. I really enjoy when a previous customer brings in a family member, friend or co-worker that they referred to me. My philosophy is: 'Where you buy is just as important as what you buy!' 
I love being a part of the Bob Poynter Family of Dealerships and hope that you will come see me for a great vehicle buying experience!

I have been in the car service business my whole life. I started working for Guaranty Auto in 1979 in the parts department. I spent two years working for them as a tech, and went to my first dealership, Hubler Chevroley, in 1988. I spent 10 years as a service writer, then went to work as a shop foreman at Hubler Dodge in 1998. I got my first service manager position at Hubler Nissan in 2000. I stayed there until 2003 and left for a position at Dellen, a fixed operations manager for GM - Dodge, Jeep, Ram parts and service. I had a chance to move home and work for Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in my home town of Franklin, IN as service director. In speaking with Bob Poynter and having the chance to work in Columbus IN, home of Cummins, I decided it was too big of opportunity to pass up. I have been here since 2012. I enjoy classic cars, Jeeps, trucks and anything outdoors hunting, fishing, and family.
