Who are we, what do we do and who allows us to serve them?
John Thames founded Dealer Services of Alabama, Gulf States Supplies and Services, and Detail Direct all under the holding company, ThamesCorp, LLC. John founded Dealer Services of Alabama after an oppurtunity to split from the previous company and pursue the physical side of the industry while the other company pursues the digital side of the industry.
During the time John has owned and operated Dealer Services of Alabama, he found needs for the two other companies, Detail Direct and Gulf States Supplies and Services. John has been working in a dealership setting for over 12 years and has gained a great deal of knowledge concerning every aspect of the dealership. John's father has been in the car business for 30 plus years and passed down invaluable knowledge that is used daily. John leads with the commander's intent method, allowing the site and general managers to make decisions best suited for the moment and the instance. John studies extensively the relationship between war and business, and throughout his studies he has found countless ways to improve day to day business. John has been married to his beautiful wife Britney since September 2012 (she still puts up with him) and enjoys working, spending time with his wife and their son, Diesel (a great dane).
