Ty Martin has been in the auto industry since 14, pumping gas and changing tires at a gas station in Abilene, Kansas. He was inspired by, Bill, the owner of that station, and when questioning his own father as to why such a smart guy and businessman would “only” run a gas station his father said, “The world needs smart, honest people to do all kinds of jobs; it seems like Bill loves what he does so we should feel lucky to have him.” With this imparted wisdom, Ty went on to work at rebuilding engines, restoring his own cars and honing his mechanic and customer service skills, eventually landing at a BMW dealership in Kansas City and then an independent BMW/Volvo service shop. After a year teaching English in Japan, he returned to a position at the very top of the automotive world— a technician at Ferrari of San Francisco. For the last four years, he has lived here in Colorado, working as Technician Team Leader for Gebhardt BMW in Boulder. Ty brings all of these experiences including attending college, living in Japan and traveling the world by motorcycle to this venture, but most importantly, his understanding of the value of a good automotive shop and importance of being a trusted business person in the community. He hopes customers will feel lucky to have Dynamic Import Service in their corner.
