Chris Ray
General Sales Manager

Chris joined Rockie Williams Premier in February 2019 as General Sales Manager. He got into the automotive industry in 2013 when a close friend recruited him to come to work at a dealership with him. After explaining that he knew nothing about cars, his friend replied, "no but you know about people." He has been serving people and providing excellent customer service ever since.

Those "people skills" have enabled Chris to develop strong, lasting relationships with customers and his fellow employees. He provides leadership for all employees, leading by example with the ultimate goal of providing the customer with a "wow" car buying experience while building long lasting relationships.

While Chris is results driven and goal-oriented, he is also a family man and devoted husband and father, enjoying family cookouts and gatherings and spending time with his wife. He loves fast cars, boxing and mixed martial arts.

"I enjoy my job; it gives me the opportunity to coach and develop employees to become better on the job and in life."

Internet Sales

Terra Williams
Internet Sales Manager

Terra joined Rockie Williams Premier in October 2018 as Internet Sales Manager. A Nashville native, she enjoys the fast pace of the auto industry. Terra, who has a background in Education, got her start in the industry by chance in 2014 when she accepted an administrative position at a local dealership. Within two months, she started the dealership's first BDC (Business Development Center) department.


Terra and her team are generally the first contact a customer has with the dealership, so their rapport and customer interaction is critical to the sales process. She coaches her team to manage all incoming phone and internet leads to ensure a quick response time and a positive first impression of the dealership.


When she is not making sure customers have a consistent point of contact throughout the sales process, Terra enjoys spending time with friends, family and church-related activities. An avid sports fan, she loves watching all sports, and actively follows the Vanderbilt Commodores, Atlanta Braves, Tennessee Titans and Nashville Predators sports teams.

Anna Clark

She developed and enhanced her customer service skills working in the Internet Sales department at several dealerships before joining the Rockie Williams Premier BDC team.

She understands and appreciates the role of an Internet Sales Agent as the initial and consistent contact with customers and enjoys helping customers realize their automotive dreams. 

Following in her parents' footsteps, Anna attended Ole Miss. She enjoys running and competed in cross country for a brief time while in High School, before switching her focus to competitive choir. But running was in her blood and she picked it back up in her early 20's, training for and running half and full marathons. Anna made it a goal to run an ultra marathon before her 30th birthday, and she'll get the chance on March 10, when she will compete in her first 50K (31.3 miles) race. 

An admitted aquarium novice, Anna enjoys the calming nature of the 30,000-gallon fish tank in the dealership's showroom and the enthusiastic, supportive team environment.

Kendra Hudson
Receptionist

Kendra is often the first person you will meet when you enter the showroom. While her official title is Receptionist, she is so much more. Kendra helps direct customers to the places they need to go and the people they need to speak with at the dealership. When new vehicles arrive, she logs them in and enters pricing into the dealership's inventory management system.

On Saturdays, she serves as a backup cashier and is the "go-to" for computer issues or when a guest has problems connecting to the complimentary WiFi.  If you have a question, Kendra is the first person to ask. She is also the one who feeds the fish once a day with a special diet of algae pellets and frozen food preparations.

Born and raised in Lebanon, TN, Kendra joined Rockie Williams Premier in 2005 when her aunt, who was the dealership's receptionist, moved into another position. She has been greeting guests in that role ever since.

When she is not at the dealership, Kendra enjoys doing anything crafty and spending time with her pride and joy, her son Jaxon.  

"I enjoy the unpredictability of my job. Every day is different than the day before and there is never a dull moment."

Randall Teat

Randy currently lives in Lancaster, TN, but has lived all over the country. His father was in the Air Force and the family moved often, settling in the Middle Tennessee area when Randy was an adolescent. 

In his free time, Randy enjoys the fruits of his "semi" retirement. He loves fast cars, farming, hunting, golf, studying the Bible, spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren, and admits that vacation time is the best.
