  • Justin Paskey, Finance Sales Manager
    (888) 713-8423

    I have been with Byers Porsche since 2012. I am one of Byers Porsche certified Brand Ambassadors. 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.

  • Lindsey Tinsley, Marketing Manager
    614-864-5180

    I grew up in Clintonville, Ohio and started in automotive in 2010 in Dublin, Ohio. I took a part-time job in the business development center to transition out of surety bail bonds and fell in love with the culture and the cars. I started working for Byers in 2012, as a marketing assistant, and have since advanced my education in managing marketing and digital design & graphics. 


    My children Cadence, Trenton and Trew like to keep me pretty busy with AAU basketball, golf, Westerville Crew, and football. We also like going to the shooting range, cooking dinner together and going out for ice cream but our favorite place to be on Sunday morning is Grace Fellowship in Arlington, Ohio

    I serve on many committees that include: 3rd & Goal, Rally for The Ranch, and Whitehall Chamber of Commerce. I enjoy bettering our community and believe that we exist to help others. I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions that you have.

  • Dave Dematteis, Service Advisor
    614-552-5415

    I have always loved cars, all makes and models. 


    My love for automotive began at an early age, I started learning how to work on cars from my father and grandfather with a 1954 Plymouth here in Columbus, Ohio.  I began working in the auto service industry in 1985 in the parts department and transitioned into service not long after. 

    I enjoy working for the Porsche brand, who doesn't love a good underdog story. From humble and small beginnings in motorsports to becoming the world's largest race car manufacturer is only amazing. 

    I also enjoy meeting and building relationships with our clients, so many of them are like family now.

  • Scott Cramblett, Porsche Brand Ambassador
    (888) 713-8423

    Two of my greatest joys in life, not including family of course, are cars and education. I grew up riding motorcross at the tender age of 14 and after college, 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, 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, Porsche Brand Ambassador
    (888) 713-8423

    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 race car 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;s 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.

  • Tim Isaac, Porsche Sales Team Member
    (888) 713-8423

    Cars have been passion of mine since I was able to hold a wrench. I grew up in Grove City, Ohio restoring classic cars with my grandfather, learning what made the wheels turn. This upbringing is what engrained honesty, integrity and credibility into my DNA. I strive to deliver a world class customer experience to everyone I encounter. My family and I are avid outdoor enthusiast from kayaking, fishing, bow hunting, hiking or just about anything else that gets my wife, daughter and I outside. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle through beautiful backcountry of our current city Lancaster, Ohio. I have been in the automotive industry since 2011 starting as a tire technician at Discount Tire and working my way up to management, now representing Porsche and their world class products. It is such a pleasure working with Porsche, their product sells themselves, I am here to educate and assist you while delivering the best purchasing experience you have ever had.

  • Trenton Estep, Porsche Sales Team Member
    (888) 713-8423

    I was born in San Antonio Texas on November 24, 1999. I started to show an interest in all things mechanical since an early age. My interest in driving started when I was around 2 years old. My sister Samantha had a pink Power Wheels Barbie Jeep. I loved to drive it on our concrete pebbled driveway and sidewalks. The jeep had these very hard plastic wheels with no traction. When you lifted off the gas pedal the brake engaged and the rear axle would lock up and you could slide it. I soon learned to drive it off our very wide driveway onto the narrow sidewalk by going as fast as I could down the slope of the driveway lifting locking up the axle and then sliding the Jeep sideways turning onto the sidewalk.


    I have competitively raced all over the world in different go-kart series and have raced open wheel series in Canada and the U.S. Mostly recently I participated and won the 2018 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge. My car was sponsored by the Byers Porsche team. I got to know the team while traveling during the season and really like the culture and have recently moved to Columbus, Ohio to join them. 

    I am very passionate about the brand, racing, pretty much anything with wheels and feel very fortunate to race what I sell. If you have any questions or just want to chat about racing, stop by the dealership 401 N Hamitlon Rd or call me.
