I have loved sales ever since I was in elementary school. I always enjoyed selling cookies, Shrinky Dink window light catchers, or whatever fundraisers were available. In high school, I got a job at Sears Westland and worked in various departments, including Hardware, Lawn & Garden, and Sporting Goods. Sears was great at providing training and allowed me to rapidly expand my product knowledge.

I bought my first vehicle, a Jeep Wrangler, from Dan Hatfield Jr. at Toyota West. During my purchase Dan asked me if I had considered selling vehicles before; I was already balancing my time between employment at Sears and classes at OSU. Intimidated by the expensive nature of the business, I initially passed on the offer. After some thought, I ended up going back to Dan less than a year later to start my career in the car business in 1995.

I stayed with Toyota West and the Hatfield's Automall until 2015, managing the Toyota West dealership for the last 12 years of my career there. Though I had a great time learning all aspects of the business, I dreamed of working at this new Byers Chevrolet store in Grove City. I had heard great things about the Byers family and remembered that the best years of my auto career were working at a family owned dealership.

As fate would have it, I was given the opportunity to manage the Byers Chevrolet dealership in September of 2016… giving way to the best years of my career. This city has embraced the business. I am always amazed by our loyal customers and the dedication of our staff. Even more, with Grove City being my home city, it is fun helping out people I know and giving back to this great community.

SYDNEY BLACK
Sales Specialist
(614) 782-2707

I was born and raised on a farm in Ashville, Ohio, where I still reside with my beloved Corgi, Arnold. Growing up there, I had it instilled in me to always work hard. I became active in Pickaway County's 4-H and Teays Valley FFA. In 2014, I was the Miss Ashville 4th of July Celebration Queen and the Pickaway County Fair Queen.

 

While not at Byers Chevrolet, you won't find me sitting still! I'm usually at home running my graphic design business - Designs by Sydney - or helping out on my family's farm. I'm also an avid NASCAR fan where I have partial ownership in a team. I started selling cars on a whim in 2019 after an injury and fell in love with it instantly. My goal is to help you find the perfect car, hassle free.

JIMMY JONES
Sales Specialist
(614) 782-2754

I was born and raised here in Central Ohio. I currently live in the small town of Mount Sterling with my wife and two children. I grew up not too far the dealership where my family raised all sorts of critters for me and my brother and sister to show in 4-H each year. It was through 4-H and playing competitive hockey from a very young age that I developed a strong work ethic. If you can't find me at Byers Chevrolet helping folks buy cars, you will likely find me enjoying the outdoors with my family! I am an avid outdoorsman that enjoys hunting, fishing and hiking. I enjoy the A-Z process of attaining fresh food for my family through hunting and raising meat chickens. While I am still relatively new to the car industry, I am no stranger to helping folks throughout the buying experience. I spent 13 years working for Ohio's premier John Deere dealership, JD Equipment, in both sales and as a General Manager before moving to the auto industry. My job is not to sell you something. My job is to help you throughout the buying process. I pride myself on being completely transparent with each and every customer. I want you to be 100% comfortable when you walk through the doors of Byers Chevy and to be 100% satisfied when you leave.
