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.

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.
