JB Hackman

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.

J.D. Roberts
Managing Partner

I've had the pleasure of working for Bob Poynter in Seymour since 1997 and am glad I had the opportunity to invest as owner and partner. 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.


Sales Department

Randy Wetzel
General Sales Manager

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 work for the Bob Poynter Family of Dealerships 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. 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 feel free to interrupt me anytime...seriously!

Les Solomon
General Sales Manager

I am a Columbus native - born and raised. I have been in the car business for over 15 years and have been fortunate enough to work for the Bob Poynter Family of Dealerships for over 10 years years. I look forward to meeting you and am excited to help you join the Bob Poynter Family. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and our two dogs. I look forward to assisting you in any way possible.

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 and graduated in 2012. After returning to my hometown of Seymour I was lucky enough to earn on a spot as a lead technician in the Bob Poynter Ford service department. 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 two 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.

Skylar Prange
Sales Associate

After graduating from Seymour High School in 2009, I attended Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, where I received a dual degree in Marketing and Business Management. After graduating from Capital, I spent an additional 8 years working in Columbus where I carried the values of our Small Town wherever I went. I then returned to Indiana, working in Indianapolis for 3 years before moving back to Seymour.

I truly enjoy helping people overcome their obstacles while providing a genuine sense of caring when doing so. It is my goal to treat everyone like family and make sure your experience with the Bob Poynter dealerships exceeds your expectations.

Outside of work, I enjoy experimenting with new food recipes & cooking techniques, watching the Auburn Tigers and THE Ohio State football teams, all while cheering for the Big Four: Colts, Reds, Pacers and Hoosiers. I am also a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church.

Andy Rueger
Service Advisor

Born and raised in this small town, it is great to be home at Bob Poynter Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Fiat Ford! My career has come full circle, I started as a service technician at Bob Poynter GM in the late 1990s. For 15 years I worked on a NASCAR crew. Later jobs include engineering and sales, all of those naturally trained me to become a service advisor. My wife, Julie, and I have a daughter who is studying at IU's Kelley School of Business. Our son and youngest daughter both attend Sauers and are sports fanatics. With those sports fanatics most of my time outside of the dealership involves coaching and watching sports. We unfortunately lost a son, Bryce, a few years ago. In his honor we created the Bryce Rueger Foundation for Youth Sports, which helped establish a youth training facility in Seymour. Now that you know about me, I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your automotive needs!
