Kevin King

Kevin King | General Manager

I grew up in Newark, Ohio and attended The Ohio State University.  While at The Ohio State University I worked part time in the automotive industry and that is where my passion started.  I have been the General Manager of Byers Imports in Columbus Ohio since February 14th, 1997.  My Part time job in college has lead to a career spanning 4 decades in the automotive and customer satisfaction industry and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

I have been married to a wonderful woman, Becky Adkins King for many years with 3 successful children Shane, Deanna, and Adam. 

We are very blessed that our 7 grandchildren Bryce, Kevin, Cassie, Mishae, Sladen, Avery, Conley all live in the Columbus and Johnstown area. Becky and I stay very active in all of their lives and love to watch them grown up.

Justin Paskey

Justin Paskey | Finance/Assistant Sales Manager

I have been with Byers Porsche since 2012. What I like most about this job is interacting with people who share the passion for everything that is Porsche; from the racing heritage to the future of the brand. The best thing about this dealership is that deep down we are all kids playing with toy cars. We all love Porsche just as much as our clients and its evident when they come and shop here at Byers Porsche.

Scott Cramblett

Scott Cramblett | Certified Sales Professional

Two of my greatest joys in life, not including family of course, are cars and education. I grew up riding motocross at the tender age of 14 and after college I bought one of the first IROC Camaros in Central Ohio.

My love of education is evidenced by my background as a high school teacher. I taught Physical Science, Biology and Chemistry for 15 years. I approach sales from an educational perspective; people ask me, “So you sell cars now huh?” and I always say, no I just let people experience the cars and educate them and they sell themselves!

It’s so rewarding working with the high quality clients who come to Byers Imports and I look forward to serving you!

Corey Fergus

Corey Fergus | Brand Specialist

I am a third generation car guy. My grandfather and great uncle were one of the first 5 Volkswagen dealers and distributors in the US. They began racing cars in the 1950's. My father followed in their footsteps and was a professional racecar driver in the 80's and 90's.

Since racing is in my blood, I also became a professional driver. I currently race in the IMSA Sports Car Challenge. When I am not on the track, I spend my time as a brand specialist for Byers Porsche. I grew up around amazing cars and have always loved driving Porsche cars. They are some of the finest vehicles on the road.

Since joining Byers I have also developed an appreciation for Audi and Jaguar as well. Being a brand specialist is great because I get to help find vehicles that my customers truly love.
