Tanner Sterling
General Manager
(402) 469-5410

Hello, my name is Tanner and I grew up in the car business alongside my dad in western Nebraska. I worked in several positions at the dealership throughout high school and during the summers. I received my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Nebraska in 2008. After college, I worked as an EE for an industrial water company in Colorado Springs for 5 years. I have been with Hastings Ford Lincoln since 2014. 

I have held several positions in the store including Service Advisor, Service Director, Sales Consultant, and Sales Manager. My favorite thing about working here is working car deals and specifically, selling someone their first vehicle and being a part of the excitement. You never forget your first car! Outside of work, I enjoy several hobbies (too many) and spending time with my wife and daughter.

Hi I'm Vickie, I started working at Hastings Ford Lincoln in 2015. Prior to moving back to Hastings I lived in Omaha for 25 years and worked as an Account Executive in the Radio/Television industry. 

I currently work in our Business Development Center, which gives me the opportunity to interact with our customers on both the Sales and Service side of the dealership.  We have a great team that encourages both personal and professional growth.

When I am not at work I love spending time with my family and friends.

Hi, I'm Ashley! I started working on a part-time basis for Hastings Ford Lincoln in 2015 to assist with their marketing, and just came on full-time in March 2020. I graduated from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing. After college, Tanner and I moved to Colorado Springs, where I worked as a Sales Rep, and then a Digital Sales Manager at a broadcast television station for almost five years. 

Tanner and I moved to Hastings in 2014. I most recently worked at Hastings College in the Admissions Office for the past four and a half years, which was also a great experience! 

My favorite part of working for the dealership is getting to be more involved with the community, as well as getting back to my career passion in marketing and advertising. I also really enjoy getting to work with my family, and with such a great group of people!

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, exercising, and spending time with my husband, our 2.5 year old daughter, and the rest of our family and friends.

Susan Sterling
Accounting
(402) 463-3116

Scott and I moved to Hastings from Sioux City, Iowa to purchase Hastings Ford Lincoln in 2012.  I joined the dealership at that time, leaving behind a long career in the banking industry. That skill set transferred well into dealership accounting, and I couldn't be happier working for the family business! Our team is exceptional, and it is such a privilege working alongside such a gifted group and getting to know their families.

During my spare time, I teach Jazzercise classes in Grand Island and enjoy time with our son and daughter-in-law and theirkiddos.  Hastings is a great place to live and have a business, we love it here!

Sales

Adam Primm
General Sales Manager
(402) 303-1072

I have been with Hastings Ford Lincoln since July of 2012, and at this dealer location for the past 9 years. I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and worked as the Manager of a company that sold home, business, and industrial flooring before I started at the dealership.


My favorite part of my job is being surrounded by like-minded people. No one here settles for "good enough" when it comes to customer service, individual and departmental goals, or anything else. We've been fortunate to win the President's Award and One Ford Elite multiple consecutive times, but still continue to chase perfection. 

Outside of work, my family takes up the largest portion of my free time, but I also love serving on my non-profit boards. I'm fortunate to be from the area, so I've also got a great group of friends here and we spend a lot of time golfing, watching games, lounging around my pool, and just generally finding fun ways to waste time together.

Wade Maudlin
Sales Consultant
(402) 519-3268

Hi, I'm Wade.  I've been in sales all my life. It started with cars in high school as a project with friends. Since then I've sold furniture, appliances, parts and finally landed right back where I belong in the best business, the car business! It is a great feeling getting to help people find just the right vehicle, and I'm so happy to be the one to help! Please follow my page to get to know me a little better and maybe even win a giveaway now and then!

I grew up in Inavale, Nebraska, a town of about 100 people. Rode the bus to school in Red Cloud until I was old enough to start driving. Once I got my first set of wheels it was off to the races! By the time I graduated from Hastings High School in 2004, I had bought and sold over 30 cars, trucks, and SUV's! Some highlights would be a 1974 Plymouth Satellite, several mid 70's Trans Am's, a 1969 Mustang Grande and a 1965 Chevelle!

After earning my Bachelor's Degree from Hastings College in 2008, I went on to selling appliances for quite a few years. I earned a cherished list of repeat customers in the appliance business, some of which have come back and bought cars from me! For about a year, I lived in Abilene, Kansas and sold Cars in Salina with a great group of people where I learned a whole lot about the car business.

In late 2017, I moved with my wife, daughter and two dogs back to the Hastings area and found my new work home at Hastings Ford Lincoln! We have such a great team here at Hastings Ford Lincoln, and I can't wait for you to meet them! It is a great place to work and I'm sure you will agree it is a great place to buy your next vehicle!

Personally, you might find me walking my two Australian Shepherds, which I adopted from Start Over Rover. When the weather is nice, you might find me playing guitar with my friends downtown in the evenings. My very favorite thing to do is spend quality time with my wife and daughter! Some of our favorite activities are taking the hounds to the park to play when it is nice out and going to the YMCA to play when it's not so nice. We love to watch live music together and feel so grateful to be in this wonderful community where we can do so much of what we love.

Sherri Paul
Sales Consultant
(913) 522-8873

Hi, I'm Sherri. I have been employed at Hastings Ford Lincoln since 2013. I moved to Hastings from the Kansas City area to care for my mother, who was ill. I was working two part-time jobs in town, and came by the dealership to purchase a vehicle. I spoke with the manager and sales consultant, and it turned out not only did they have a vehicle I wanted, but they were also looking to hire a full-time sales consultant. I left with a nice used car and a new job a few weeks later! I will always be grateful. They gave me a chance, and I love it here. I work with a great group of people. 

My favorite part of my job is helping my guests find the vehicle that matches their wants and needs. I love seeing that smile on their face and the excitement they show when we find the right vehicle! I have made a few friends along the way as well.

When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family that lives close by. I'm a big fan of horseback riding as well.

Hi, my name is Liz. I have been with Hastings Ford Lincoln since 2019. It has been quite the year. I didn't know what to expect coming in as I come from a mostly retail background and most recently was an assistant manager in my local town until the store closed. I felt fortunate that I was given the opportunity to come in and to learn something so different. I have enjoyed every aspect of my job from the people I work with to helping provide the best assistance to our customers. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time outdoors with family and friends. Usually during the summer I spend time camping and traveling. I often take time to travel back to Oregon to visit family. If I am not camping or visiting family I am usually at home with my husband and our dogs working on house projects or getting crafty. I enjoy drawing, painting, and writing. I also enjoy trying new recipes I find or getting creative and coming up with something new.
