Karla Gentile

Product Specialist
844-619-0919

Karla recently joined our family early May of 2019. She has always been a fan of driving and cars in general and wanted to make the car buying experience enjoyable, fast and fun for others, including first-time buyers. When not at the dealership helping new customers, she enjoys cruising along coastal Rt 1 or spending time actually on the beach (not just looking at it from her vehicle). Here's a cool little fact about Karla: she flew a Cessna once out of Skyhaven Airport in Rochester; she got to take off, do banked turns over the ocean off of York, Maine, and land the plane! And her favorite vehicle is a Mustang... we think she's in the right place for that!

Tina Bowden

BDC Manager
844-619-0919

Tina joined the Hampton Ford Hyundai family as a Product Specialist in February 2018. A little while later she moved into our Internet Sales role, acting as the first impression of the dealership for many new customers coming to our websites. Unlike most people. Tina loves the car shopping experience and decided she wanted to be there for people ready to take the next steps in the car buying journey. When Tina isn't at the dealership, you may find her binge-watching Supernatural or Grey's Anatomy, that is if she's not chasing after her cute as a button puppy (who may have a side-gig as a personal assistant to the Devil). Tina is fluent in Greek and would love to challenge anyone to try to pronounce her Maiden name (Tzortzakis).

Taryn Myers

Marketing Director
844-619-0919

Part nerd, part artist, and a lot of weird, Taryn Myers may appear to be a conflict in amongst herself. But turns out she is just one crazy, creative thinker who doesn't let herself get boxed into traditional thinking. She takes that creative approach to life and work. Taryn is fluent in the languages of words, numbers, and pictures. They say a picture says a thousand words, but did you know that certain numbers do as well? Data can tell one heck of a story if you know how to read it, visualize it, interpret it, and apply it. Taryn takes this unique perspective on every encounter in life. In her work, she finds solutions by looking at every angle and exploring the viewpoint of everyone involved (brand, influencer, audience, etc). And her art illustrates it, challenge the viewer to look at things differently. Chief Navigator by day as the President/Proprietor of Ephemeris, a research-driven marketing strategy agency, Taryn loves to help people and businesses grow by hoping aboard their moving ship and steering them through the rough (and usually poorly-charted) marketing seas. She also loves to talk. So if you want her to talk about branding or media placement or social media or SEO or anything marketing (or really anything), let's make that happen. By night, Taryn will be found painting, running, or molding young artist minds. She enjoys her time helping to run the York Art Association as co-director of youth programming, and you can frequently get a glimpse of her artwork at the gallery.
