Christi Nethaway worked in customer service for JMCAA from 2010 until 2012 when she then answered the call to serve and added title clerk to her duties. She also specializes in registering new dealers, updating customer files, and serves as a diligent liaison between the Auction and the customer, informing them of upcoming weekly events.

Christi resides in McKenzie, TN with her husband, Clayton, and their two children, Joshua and Mary, a student at the University of Tennessee. She enjoys gardening and cooking (and according to Thoroughbred Capital Partners co-owner, Tim Perkins, she makes the best homemade salsa he has ever eaten).

Claytie NethawayClaytie Nethaway 
Claytie Nethaway has been an intergral member of the JMCAA Team even prior to the opening in 2000, in which he oversaw the contruction of the facility and then served on the staff until 2009. In 2012 he returned to the Auction as the lot manager/repo manager.

Claytie, orginally from Michigan, seldom misses a telecast of his beloved Woverines, following them on the hardwood and the gridiron. (I know that must hurt the feelings of most Tennesseans)
He also enjoys "tinkering" on golf carts,

Claytie is married to JMCAA title clerk, Christi Nethaway, and is the father of two children, Joshua and Mary.

Jullie is married to JMCAA general manager Micky Stafford. When she is not at son Hunter's baseball, basketball, or football games, she enjoys fishing, golfing, and singing along with the radio to her favorite Christian Artist groups, Casting Crowns and Big Daddy Weave. She also has two daughters, Heather Smith and Tish Jones, and two grandchildren, Raelyn and Layne.

Jullie calls McKenzie, TN home, and attends Tennessee Valley Community Church.

Micky StaffordMicky Stafford 
Jackson-Madison County Auto Auction general manager Micky Stafford has been involved in the automobile auction industry for over twenty years. He has served as an auctioneer at JMCAA since Opening Day in 2000, and was elevated to general manger in January of 2010 when Thoroughbred Capital Partners purchased the company.

In fact, he has been around an auction of some sort for his entire life. Even as a small child, he worked for his father's auction company, Nicky Joe Stafford Real Estate & Auction, "holding up" various items for sale every Saturday at estate sales.

When not at the Auction, Micky enjoys coaching his son Hunter's sports teams, playing golf, and raising his nearly twenty Beagle dogs which he carries swamp rabbit hunting. Micky is married to Jullie Stafford, and they reside in McKenzie, TN.
