Damon Shorterage, Finance Manager
614-383-4346

I am a Cleveland native, but have lived in Columbus for 11 years. I received a degree in Sports Management and was a personal trainer for eight years. For the past seven months I have worked for the Germain organization. Originally as a sales consultant at Germain Nissan and most recently joining the Mazda team. I have been passionate about cars since I was a kid and spent time rebuilding my 1978 Vega.


In addition to cars, I'm an avid fan of the Buckeyes and Browns. When I'm not at the dealership, I enjoy working out and spending time with family and friends.

Rusty Wilson, Sales Consultant
614-383-4345

I am originally from Cleveland and moved to Columbus in 1974, although I am still a Cleveland sports supporter! I started in the car business repairing cars professionally back in 1975, and spent the next 30 years as a technician with time spent as a master tech for a local Mazda store. I then transitioned to sales and have over 13 years experience in the car business selling and leasing cars with 5 years of that with the Germain Auto Group. Since June 2012 I've been with our new Mazda store.  A while back after working on a client's vehicle they said that my diagnosis of their car was like that of a doctor so in that moment I became The Car Doctor!  In my free time I am either hanging with my family or still repairing their cars!

Jason has been working on cars his whole life but started his career with them in 2012. He started off in construction but soon transitioned into automotive. An interesting fact about Jason is that he may have Mad Cow disease lying dormant in his system and therefore, it is illegal for him to donate blood!
