ODaniel Automotive Group

Marketing Director


Ms. Julie Kimes brings to the table 25 plus years at O’Daniel’s and an entire family history tied to the car industry. With a background of growth and Avant guard development in the way cars are sold, Kimes has spent her career dedicated to delivering extraordinary service and value. Her hard work has clearly paid off in every position she has held in the dealership. In 2009 after successfully managing a satellite store, she was asked to be the GSM for O’Daniel Automart and Mazda. When Kimes took over the operations the total dealership sales were only 556 units a year. She has not only gained market share but has nearly doubled sales volume closing 2015 with 1069 retail units. She attributes the success to thinking outside of the box.
