I was born in Indianapolis and spent 14 years with General Motors before starting the GM dealership in 1979. In recent years we have added Chrysler and Ford dealerships. It's our mission to treat every person like family. We've had the privilege to work with thousands of customers over the years and currently working with second and third generations. If you are a Bob Poynter of Seymour customer I appreciate it very much,if not, I would ask for your consideration and the opportunity to earn your business. I invite you to stop by and see me or call regarding anything you need from the Bob Poynter family.

Managing Partner

I have been in the car business since the age 15. Mr Poynter has created an awesome place to work, which in turn is an awesome place to conduct business. After graduating from IU, I got lucky enough to land a sales position with Bob Poynter. Since then I have been fortunate enough to become GM/Partner. I'm married to my best friend/beautiful wife. We have three wonderful children. I enjoy work, hiking, travel and just hanging out with the family. I invite anyone to call, email, or simply stop in and see me anytime. We always strive to ensure customer satisfaction and always go the extra step to make your experience a great one. Thanks to all of our existing customers and I invite any new folks to give us a try. As always we appreciate your business.

After graduating from Seymour High School in 1992, I spent a brief two year period having no idea what I wanted to do with my life until I came across a newspaper ad for an automotive salesperson position in Columbus, Indiana.  Since that time I've filled many roles in the industry including sales, new inventory manager, finance manager, sales manager and now general manager.  I've been lucky enough to have worked for the Bob Poynter organization since 2003, and I look forward to many more years of service to the community and our loyal customers here in Jackson County and beyond. I was fortunate enough to talk my high school sweetheart into marrying me in 1996. Misty and I have since been blessed with two awesome boys, Coltin and Harrison.  I enjoy spending time away from work with my family, friends, and Weber grills.  As a lifelong fan of the Cincinnati Reds, Indiana Hoosiers, Indianapolis Colts, and Indiana Pacers I have a pretty busy schedule of watching sports, but fell free to interrupt me anytime… seriously!

I was born and raised in Columbus, IN but moved to the Carolina's after high school. I came back to the area 3 years ago to be closer to my family.  I have worked in sales for 20 years and find myself very lucky to work for JB and Bob Poynter the last 3 years. When I'm not working you can find me on the golf course or on a lake fishing.

Sales Associate

I am a life-long resident of Jackson County. I grew up on a farm in the Dudleytown area. I am a graduate of Seymour High School. I now reside in Seymour where I have been married to my lovely wife for 6 years. My pride and joy is my 2 year old daughter who is the greatest gift a guy could ask for. A couple of hobbies of mine are racing dirt cars at Brownstown Speedway to tractor pulling. I have always been involved in some sort of motorsports. I also enjoy hunting, fishing and pretty well any other outdoor activity. I first became a part of the Bob Poynter family in 2016 when I was hired as a service advisor. I spent 2 years writing service at the GM store before I was given the opportunity to be a part of the sales team at the Chrysler store. In my few short years here at Poynter's I can gladly say that there is no better place to work. Everyone here is a team and I consider them all family. I thank everyone that has put their trust in me in the past and allowed me to fulfill their automotive needs. For my future customers I would love the opportunity to earn your business and serve all your vehicle needs.

Tyler Hill
Sales Associate

After graduating Seymour High School in 2008, my love for everything automotive led me to the University of Technical Institute in North Carolina where I studied automotive engineering for 4 years, graduating in 2012.  After returning to my hometown of Seymour I was lucky enough to earn on a spot in the Bob Poynter Ford service department as a lead technician.  Within months of starting my new career I was diagnosed with Thymoma Cancer, a rare form of the disease, located in the upper chest that attacks the immune system.  Nearly 2 years later and once cleared of medical treatment, Mr. Poynter was gracious enough to bring me back to the team, this time in a sales role requiring much less physical stress than turning wrenches.  Needless to say I've loved every minute of the journey since, earning the trust and respect of our customers, helping find the right vehicle for potential clients, and maintaining life-long relationships with those that allow me to serve them has been more rewarding than I ever could have imagined.  Riding my Harley Davidson, and working on my 88' Mustang 5.0 help fill the time when I'm not selling cars and trucks.  Like a lot of guys from Jackson County I also enjoy the pleasures of country living like hunting and fishing.  Please don't hesitate to contact me anytime for your automotive needs or technical advice.
