Joel W. Hemphill Jr. (Joey)
Chairman & Treasurer
Joey Hemphill has been around buses all of his life. When Joey and Trent started the company in 1980 with two old 1965 Eagles, Joey spent much of his time repairing the buses. This experience helped him acquire a talent for building and maintaining the quality buses that travel this country’s highways today.
By working with many of the country’s top entertainers, Joey has developed a reputation for building quality custom interiors that is synonymous with Hemphill Brothers Coach Company. Joey pays attention to the needs and desires of Hemphill clients, a key factor in the company’s success.
Many of the artists who lease a new Prevost long term contribute to the design and layout of the coach, which is a key element in making Hemphill Brothers stand out from all other coach companies.
Under Joey’s supervision and with the expertise of his qualified mechanics and interior conversion crew, the fleet continues to grow by leaps and bounds.
Although anyone who sees the interior of a new bus leaving the Nashville-based facility thinks it to be the most beautiful one ever made–one that could never be topped–Joey already has new plans for the next “best interior ever to be built”.
