David Johnson, General Manager

"Good people serving good people since 1897. That was the first thing I saw when I went into Mr. Byers office to interview many years ago. The Byers family lives up to this motto everyday. We hire the best people to make sure our customers are treated better than any other car dealer around. Consumers can service their cars anywhere, buy a car from anyone, and purchase their parts from many places. We try everyday to make sure we do each of these things better and that you have a great experience doing business with Geo Byers Sons."

Jeff Parker, General Sales Manager

I am originally from North Carolina. I moved to Ohio in 1989, so long enough to call it home. I still return to North Carolina 5 to 6 times a year, so I remember how to speak with an accent properly. I am a father to four children. My oldest Alexan is in the Navy Reserves and attends school. Kendal, is waiting on a Navy Seal Contract. Trevor, is a senior in high school and will be attending Capital Law school on an academic and football schlorship.. My youngest Logann is an incoming Sophomore, playing softball and running cross country. The thing I like best about Byers, is working for a family based business which values family time and encourages you to take time to witness your children's activities. I also love working in a positive environment, where life long relationships are built and fostered. My hobbies are anything outdoors. I spend most of my free time with my chocolate lab, Rylee. She loves to retrieve anything you can throw, hunt pheasants or spend time fishing with me on my small boat. Ok, I fish and she swims. The older I get, the more I appreciate grilling, and the little things in life; quality conversations with my girlfriend Edie, a good book, close friendships, glass of wine, listing instead of talking, and encouraging others to be the best they can be. My favorite restaurant is Parker's Patio and Grill. I love to cook.  I would rather stay home and prepare a nice meal, and relax on my patio. No waiting in line for the bathrooms and I know they are clean. The best advice I ever received was from my Grandfather, who is 96 years old, a World War II veteran, and one of my personal hero's. He isn't a man of many words and when he speaks it is usually of significance. My girlfriend Edie had gotten into some poison ivy and was in bad shape. I called my granddad to see what he might suggest, perhaps an old school remedy.  "Learn to identify it and stay away from it" that is wisdom.

Steve Carlson, New Car Sales Manager

I was born in Chicago, but resided in Detroit most of my childhood. I came to Columbus in the early 70's, and graduated from Thomas Worthington High School. I continued my education at The Ohio State University and obtained a degree in Finance and Accounting. I got into the car business in the early 80's. The best thing I like about working for Byers is that they are a community minded family run organization which cares about their employees and families. When I am not selling cars, I like to go on vacation where its warm and sunny. My favorite night out in Columbus would be a great dinner at Eddie Merlot. The best advice I have received is "Treat others as you would want to be treated yourself". 

Corey London, Sales Manager

"I originate from New Orleans, LA.  I currently reside in Canal Winchester, Ohio after relocating to the area due to Hurricane Katrina. I am a US Navy Veteran. The best thing I like about working for Byers is; their reputation for complete customer satisfaction. I love spending time with my wife Leslie and daughter Tayla, because they bring me lots of joy. My favorite restaurant is Smith and Wollensky at Easton. The best advice I have received was "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe the mind of man can achieve!" by Napoleon Hill.  My goal is to succeed by sustaining an unblemished reputation for sincerity, integrity and reliability.  I always identify with the fairest treatment of my customers and when my customers give me their business I give them back ongoing satisfaction!" 

Tyler Brown, Fixed Operations Director

I am from, and currently live in, Frazeysburg Ohio. I own a small farm where we raise beef cattle and enjoy country living. I have 3 children; 13 year old daughter, Addi, 10 year old son, Shane and 2 week old son, Weston. I grew up in Pataskala, Ohio and graduated from Watkins Memorial High School. After High School, I attended The Ohio State University Newark Campus where I earned a degree in Business Management. I started in the car business in 2006, washing cars at a local Dodge dealership, and worked my way up through the ranks over the years. I have been with Byers since 2010 and enjoy working for the Byers family because of their family values and dedication they show to their employees. When I am not at the dealership, I enjoy camping, spending time with my family and working on our family farm. The best advice I received in the car business was from a co-worker who had 40+ years of experience (all with Byers); "treat people the way you want to be treated and success will come easy". I try to follow his advice everyday and treat every customer or employee like family.

Andy Peabody, Sales Specialist

I was born in Virginia Beach, VA and moved to Columbus, OH when I was 11 years old. Graduated from Upper Arlington High School, and then attended Marietta College. I have been in the automotive sales career since 1983, started selling cars in Houston, Texas. It is a pleasure working for a strong family business, who have been in the automotive industry for over 116 years. The group of guys I work with in the pre-owned department are great guys, with good experience and care about the customer. I used to play a lot of golf, tennis, and basketball... but have slowed down a little in my fifties. I enjoy reading, hiking, and love watching college football. My favorite evening is having dinner at PF Changs and taking in a good movie afterwards. The best advice I have received was "Treat people with respect and remember to always do unto others as you would want done unto you".
