About Us


I started out in Port Lavaca with Port Lavaca Ford in 2002. I just love putting a deal together. I love growing and expanding our success, which has turned into 19 dealerships, selling 12 different brands in 10 different cities across Texas

On top of the 19 dealerships, Keating Auto Group consists of an insurance company, Apex Protection, an advertising agency, Tropacaval Media and Viper Exchange. ViperExchange.com is where we sell all of our Vipers. We’ve been the top volume Viper dealer in the nation for the last several years.

We have proven very successful over the years and I enjoy teaching the business to other people. I enjoy the growth that comes from buying dealerships, hiring from within the company, and teaching those individuals how to have their own business and be successful at it.
