Brion Draper

Meet Brion Draper

Brion started out in the sign business by leasing The Mobile Sign Factory. It was a complete sign company inside a box truck with sliding glass doors. Brion was able to travel around Virginia and make signs in the parking lot for customers. He operated the company from 2005 to 2007 and ended the lease. In 2010, he opened American Made Signs with a storefront on Rio Road. As the company grew after 5 years, he moved the company into the City of Charlottesville and expanded the company and hired new employees.

Brion is the owner of American Made Signs and oversees all quotes, work orders and installations. If you'd like to schedule a meeting with Brion, please contact Carrie Goff our receptionist.

Ray Jenkins

Meet Ray Jenkins

I joined the team at American Made Signs in June of 2015 as a fabricator/installer. Prior to my employment at A.M.S., I was in retail management. Over the 20 plus years in management, my name was synonymous with trust, honesty, and dedication. I got to know my customers on a first name basis because they were important. I pride myself on giving all of my customers the best quality service possible. That same trust, honesty, and dedication, are the values I have at American Made Signs. I know that we will give you the quality and service you want and need.

Since joining American Made Signs, I have seen so much of this beautiful state. The mountains, valleys, farmlands and big cities are all amazing. The people I have met in my travels have been great. My employer and coworkers are wonderful! We sit down as a team and talk about our customers needs. We each put our ideas out there, compile them and give you, our customer the best options.

I took an interest in art at an early age. I remember I loved to color as a child. My other hobbies were drawing, painting, poetry, and carpentry. Now just as a hobby, I do wood carvings, walking sticks and other different projects. I also am very fond of music. I enjoy listening and playing all kinds of music. I also enjoy watching classic movies such as, Rocky, The Godfather, Planet of the Apes, and reruns of the Family Feud.

Carrie Goff

Meet Carrie Goff

Her people oriented approach to life led Carrie to the medical field, where she was GM of the bookstore for EVMS for 8 years. She enjoys oil painting, learning new things, has a passion for using these skills to help others succeed or be happy, and believes that being at AMS is a good place to bridge the gap between creativity, business and supporting a locally owned company. If you have called our office, you have probably heard her cheerful voice. In addition to being our front desk receptionist and greeting our clients, Carrie is responsible for responding to emails. She also produces quotes, invoices, works on our accounting and helps keep the office running smoothly. Much to her husband's chagrin (because it takes space in the garage away from their motorcycle), Carrie enjoys refurbishing antiques when not at work, and traveling or hiking.
