Dana Furthmiller - Owner

260-357-4300 - dana@furthmiller.com

Dana Furthmiller has been around cars all of his life. His father, Dave Furthmiller, owned and operated Dave Furthmiller Speed Shop in Fort Wayne, Indiana, during the 60's and 70's, specializing in high performance racing engines, and was known for delivering "Power not Promises" to many racers and car enthusiasts. Dana's automotive career also started in his hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 1982, where he worked in the service department for a local Harley-Davidson dealership during high school. In the Spring of 1986, Dana moved from motorcycles to cars and accepted a service manager position for a Toyota store in Fort Wayne. Over the next 7 years, Dana advanced through the service department ranks where he eventually became the Parts and Service Director in charge of several franchises for an Indiana-based mega-dealer. During this time, Dana served 4 years in the Indiana Air National Guard. Then in 1993, a promotion into Sales Management for this same mega-dealer led Dana to a 14 year career climb to running multiple new car stores with positions as a Sales Manager, General Sales Manager, Director of Operations, and General Manager. Finally, the timing was right for Dana to step out and fulfill his dream of opening his own business. Furthmiller Motors was opened in February of 2007 in Auburn, Indiana. With over 34 years of service and sales experience, Dana is knowledgeable and understanding as to what it takes to deliver on promises and exceed the expectations of customers. Dana strives to run his own dealership with a relaxed, laid-back approach, answering all questions and concerns with the utmost professionalism and honesty. Dana plays bass guitar on weekends, and enjoys listening to and performing live music. He has been married for over 29 years to Katie, and has three daughters, Erica, Alexis, and Natalie.

Jay Fitzgerald - Store Manager

260-357-4300 - jay@furthmiller.com

Jay Fitzgerald joined Furthmiller Motors as the Store Manager in August of 2016, after spending a few years at another local independent auto dealer as a sales associate. Jay is not new to the car business though, because in 2001 he opened and operated his own business for 10 years called ProMotion, which serviced several local car dealers with promotional products, including signage, banners, streamers, flag poles, you name it! Around this time in 2002, Dana Furthmiller and Jay met. In fact, Jay designed and produced the first signage for Furthmiller Motors back in 2007, which we still proudly display today inside our sales office. Jay has been with his wife Karyn for over 20 years, and they have 2 beautiful children, Jack and Rissa. Jay is a proud graduate of Northside High School in Fort Wayne, and has been a lifelong, local guy. When Jay is not working, he likes to root for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and hit every Jimmy Buffet concert that he can.

When not at Furthmiller Motors, Colissa is usually spending quality time with her family: her husband, Christian; their cat, Maggie; & their pups, Murphy & Kota!

Carson Ohning - Office Manager

260-357-4300 - carson@furthmiller.com

Carson Ohning joined Furthmiller Motors in May of 2017 in our detailing department! After pursuing a degree in business marketing at Purdue Fort Wayne, Carson expressed interest in moving into more of an office position - so when the need arose, we were more than happy to move him up & into the office!! He is always happy to walk our customers through the paperwork portion of purchasing a vehicle, answering any questions they may have, & is in charge of all things titlework. His favorite part of the job, though, is managing our social media accounts, where he really gets to express his creativity, come up with fresh ideas for advertising & shoot really fun videos with the gang! (Check those out here!)  He is a proud graduate of Dekalb High School and has lived in Auburn his whole life. When he's not working or at school, you can find him hanging out with friends either listening to music or going on road trips. He is super social & likes meeting new people, so never hesitate to say hi!

The head of our exterior detailing department, Kaylee Conn, may look a little familiar... that's because her brother, Andy Conn, was the head of our detailing department for over 2 years. We are happy to have her on board, running the show in the exterior detailing process. She helps us get our vehicles cleaned up & looking their best quickly, as well as shoots many pictures & videos for our online consumers. When not at Furthmiller; Kaylee might be looking after her 50 chickens or collecting freshly laid eggs, hanging out with her boyfriend at a mud bog, hitting grand slams on the softball field, or doing some landscaping in the surrounding area. She is friendly & funny, so don't be afraid to say hello next time you see her out on the lot!
