Meet The Team

Kyle A. Barger – Owner

My name is Kyle Barger and I was born and raised in Bexley. I graduated from Bexley High School in 1999 and from Ohio University in 2006. I started working in the automotive field in 2001 with the Germain family and was with them until I purchased Bexley Automotive. My last position was Parts and Service Director with Germain Mazda. As a lifelong resident of Bexley, I’m excited to be an owner and operator of a business in the community that has meant so much to me. I have a simple philosophy when it comes to automobiles – they are family! Bexley Automotive has had a long history of taking good care of its customers through honesty and integrity and I want to continue if not exceed the quality of service you are accustomed to. Keith and I have formed an excellent professional and personal relationship and we want to make it clear that he is 100% behind me through not only this transition but beyond! While I may be a new owner, I have no intention of rocking the boat. Your automobiles are family to you and you are family to me which means your automobile is like my family. I am excited and motivated to serve you and the community for many years to come! Please stop by, any time and let me introduce myself!

Justin Messenger - Parts and Service Director

My name is Justin Messenger. I am a resident of Gahanna and have been in central Ohio for more than 20 years now. I graduated from Wyoming Technical Institute in 2003 with a degree in Automotive Technology and Management. Working as a technician for several years I was ASE Master Certified, GM certified, and Nissan certified. I spent the last 5 years working along side of Kyle at the Germain Mazda store as the Parts Manager and Assistant Service Manager. Using my technical experience in the automotive repair industry I strive to provide an accurate and honest repair and maintenance experience. Bexley Automotive has been serving its customers with honesty and respect for several years earning the trust of its customers. This is the environment we want to maintain and build upon. We want our customers to feel comfortable and confident when you bring us your vehicle for servicing. I found at a young age that cars and trucks are my passion and have been working on them since I was very young. This has made my time in the
industry very rewarding to do what I enjoy everyday. If you have any questions about your vehicle please don't hesitate to come by and ask.
