Upon meeting Dustin Keller, president of Keller Automotive, you will immediately sense his honest, compassionate and caring demeanor. He possesses a genuine knack for building long-term relationships with customers, clients and employees within all four divisions of Keller Automotive. As a life-long Columbus resident, Dustin graduated from Reynoldsburg High School, attended Columbus State and upon his return from the Army National Guard, where he served as a Combat Engineer and completed the SMP Leadership Program, he attended Franklin University where he earned his BSBA and Masters of Financial Leadership.
Surrounded by true entrepreneurial parents, Keller Automotive was launched on January 30th, 2005, by Dustin and co-founders Brad and Mary Keller. Keller Automotive operates as Excite Auto Repair & Towing, Excite Auto & Cycle Sales, Stealth Auto Recovery and Excite Ventures. Dustin feels fortunate to have created a business which combines his life-long passion for cars and motorcycles along with his honest and ethical approach to Auto Repair and Auto Services. Regardless if you are interacting with Dustin or his co-workers throughout any of the operations in Columbus, Dayton or Zanesville, your initial experience with Excite will include a conversation about you, your car, how long you plan to keep your car and what are the immediate issues you need to solve. “At times, we really are guilty of giving out too much information and free advice, but that is okay, because we understand the customer’s point of view. We know we are providing the best information possible and last, but not least, we love to talk about cars!”
Community involvement is second nature to Dustin and his heart extends beyond the work environment. He is Member/Treasurer of the New Albany Rotary, supports Joseph’s Coat, Heart Food Pantry, Byron Saunders Foundation and the Gahanna Residents in Need (GRN) Program. As an avid networker, Dustin has built his business on meeting people, putting their needs before his, working hard and dreaming big. Eleven years of growth and success have contributed to Dustin Keller’s leadership skills and business savvy and of course, his unique ability to transform customers into friends. It is not uncommon for customers to refer their parents or even grandparents to Dustin. “Helping people and rendering honest and reasonable solutions are what we proudly offer.” As Dustin is known to say…… ”I would love to be introduced to anyone who has a car and a question!”
