  • Rudi Grentz

  • Amanda Gilliam
    Rental Agent
    606-330-7018

    Managing rental cars requires a sharp mind to work out logistics and the ability to multi-task by toggling between various forms of technology. It can be overwhelming at times. To recharge for work, Amanda enjoys life without constant digital connectedness at her private Walden: a 110-acre farm near London, Ky., with two large gardens, two ponds, cows and a pet horse named Oat. Amanda lives there with her husband, Nathan Lawson, who also loves all things outdoors.

  • BG Hutton
    Used Car Manager

    B.G., his wife and three children now live in Corbin, Ky., after recently relocating from Florida, where they lived for several years. With a healthy group of family and friends nearby, they're happy to be back in Kentucky. The one thing B.G. misses, however, is fishing in Tampa's Lake Byrd. That's where he caught three 10-pound bass in a single day. Anyone who can do that deserves a trophy. That's why B.G. had one mounted, and it now hangs on his living room wall.

  • Bobby Kidd
    Finance Director

    Bobby has worked in the automotive industry for over 25 years, 22 of which have been focused mainly on finance. He directs finance managers at all Legacy locations. His only source of angst is derived from the off days he spends on the golf course making failed attempts to recapture his glory as a 15-year-old making a hole-in-one on No. 4 at London Country Club. That par three will haunt him until he relives the magic. Bobby and his wife, Kim, live in London, Ky., with their son, Brooks.

  • Bryan Roberts
    Finance Manager

    Bryan is an avid collector of sports memorabilia. He keeps an eye on trade websites like the Upper Deck, Craigslist and eBay to gauge the pulse of the market and discover elusive items-those he might keep under lock and key until a special occasion inspires him to show them off. One such item is his Michael Jordan graded rookie card from 1986, the first year basketball cards for His Airness were officially licensed. How much is it worth? Bryan's not talking. He and his wife, Liberty, live in London, Ky., with their daughter, Eleanor.
