    I have been in the car business most of my life. Starting when I was 12 years old sweeping the floors, I have worked in every department as I matured to being one of the youngest dealers that GM has ever had, signing the dealer agreement in 1997.

    I became the owner of the Toyota and Volkswagen stores in 2006 after a tragic motorcycle accident took my brother Michael's life. My mother had six children including myself that she raised while working full time to support us. The work ethic that she instilled in all of her children is what has made me successful today.

    I graduated from John Carroll University where I received my BSBA in Marketing and Management. I am blessed to have a business in Rochester Hills that my father started in 1967. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Jennifer and our three children. I also enjoy many outdoor activities including, golf, skiing, hunting and soccer.

  • Dustin Kring
    Digital Marketing & IT Manager
    248-710-1789

    The Digital Marketing & IT Department is responsible for quite a bit on campus. Every day is faced with a wide variety of challenges ranging from Website administration, social media management, product photography, network connectivity issues, phone system issues and much much more.

    My life of education, curiosity and adventure have led me to be the leader of this department. I came from owning and operating my marketing company (still running) and being a working musician to joining the Fox Automotive team to build and develop this hybrid department of madness. It's a pleasure to do what you love everyday of your life.

    Aside from my job(s), I spend my time with my Wife, step son, my family (including my adorable nephew and niece), play Men's Softball, Volleyball, Basketball, Golf and more. My music adventures include being a Solo Acoustic musician at local bars/restaurants, and I also play Piano, Drums and Bass.

    I've been a Rochester Hills resident for 28 years and counting… 13 of which have been with the Fox organization! I started at Fox VW/Toyota in 1999 as a New & Used car detailer. I loved making cars look better, and got to know a lot about the brands!

    I went off to college in Traverse City in 2002 to study Aviation. Recieved my private pilot's license, and moved back to Rochester Hills in 2005 where I started my sales career. I was promoted to finance in 2016, and I'm excited to be able to continue my career with the Fox organization! 

    In my free time I make custom woodworkings.. Furniture, refinishing projects.. and the occasional home renovation. I'm a huge hockey fan, have played soccer my whole life, and golf like Phil Mickelson. ..Meaning most of my golf attire is black.

    Come see me in either the Volkswagen or Toyota showroom, and I look forward to working with you!
