Spotlight On Success

Ketchum Automotive

Ryan Dean grew up in Ketchum. He went to Hemmingway Elementary, Community School and Wood River High. Ryan skied on the SVSEF team all through high school. He then went to the University of Utah and ran a Paralegal business in California for a number of years.

Ryan returned to the valley to be close to his father, who owned Dean Tire. As life had changed, Ryan went back to his roots and began coaching for the SVSEF. Twenty years later and he is still on the program!

Ryan met his wife Tina, and was soon joined by a son and daughter; which in turn lead to the decision to take on Ketchum Automotive in 2004.  

Pete Cantor started the business around 1978 and had been successful for years.  With his father’s success at Dean Tire and having re-established himself in the community, Ryan’s business took off.  The rest is history.  Stop by and see for yourself at Ketchum Automotive, voted the Valley's Best Car Repair Shop for the last four years!
