Since the beginning of his automotive career in 1991, Terry has spent most of his time building lasting relationships in a constantly changing industry.

Having served as an F&I Producer and F&I Director, Terry has the ability to understand the culture of the dealer’s Finance department.

Before entering his career in finance, Terry was awarded Chevrolet’s Legion of Leaders Award and was also inducted into Chevrolet’s Truck Sales Honor Club. He can also leap tall PRU’s in a single turn.

Terry enjoys spending quality time with his friends and family

Chelsea Dodson aka Poison Ivy Operations Manager

Chelsea brings alot of enthusiasm and energy to AMI. Having spent the last few years as a personal trainer, she makes sure that we all work out and stick to a healthy diet!

Chelsea enjoys the great outdoors, baking, and reading. After her workouts, she enjoys curling up with a good book while snacking on some homemade chocolate chip cookies.

JIMMY ALLEN aka Bam-Bam AMI Field Representative -

Jimmy brings over 20 years of automotive experience to our team. He started his career as a car salesman and has held the positions of New Car Manager, Used Car Manager, F&I Producer and most recently, F&I Director.

The majority of Jimmy's tenure in the automotive field has been spent with the Bob Howard Group and the Fenton Group.

BRANDON MALICOATE aka Speedy AMI Field Representative -

Brandon started his automotive career as a salesman for Bob Howard Automotive/Group 1 Automotive. Knowing that they had a future star, Group 1 transitioned him into Finance and Sales Management roles within the organization very quickly. His latest contributions to the automotive field have been with the Bob Moore Automotive Group where he held positions of Finance Director, New Car Sales Manager, and Used Car Sales Manager.

Brandon spends his free time with his beautiful wife who coincidentally loves watching the OKC Thunder and OU Sooners play as much as he does! Brandon, aka "Speedy", loves the outdoors and spends as much time as he can on the golf course.

ASHTON NEWPORT aka Xena, Warrior Princess Administrative Assistant

After receiving her high school diploma, Ashton worked as a Personal Finance Fitness Counselor and was later promoted to Fitness Manager. She then decided to take on her first "Big Girl" job and became a tax and loan specialist which lead to an interest in real estate. Before taking on any more challenges, Ashton was adopted into the AMI family where she is appreciated for her impeccable work ethic.

In her free time, Ashton enjoys great food, sports, shopping, and seeing where life's journey takes her.
