My name is Adam Richardson, and I've been part of our Kokomo Auto World family for 15 years. I was hired right out of High School and started out as a lot porter, checking vehicles, making sure our inventory/lot always looked good, new, and fresh. I then moved up to managing the Detail department and then Internal Service Advisor, assisting the Pre-Owned inventory from service and repair. I then moved into a Customer Service Advisor, working with customers and taking care of their vehicle needs. I worked in Service for 5 years before getting introduced into the Sales department and I love what I do! I love helping people and meeting their satisfaction, in finding the right vehicle that fits all their needs at a great price. Kokomo Auto World is family, and with out the giving me the opportunity 14 years ago, I would not be where I'm at today. I love our staff, we are a team and work well together. Thank you Kokomo Auto World, Greg L, Chris S, Michael K, and Andrew B for believing in me!
