  • Ron Stepp
    Certified Premium Specialist

    Ron Stepp

    I was born in Chicago Illinois. I moved to Florida with my parents while I was high school. I graduated from Mainland Senior High in Daytona Beach. Then I returned to Illinois to attend the University of Illinois studying Entomology (the study of insects). I enjoy playing hockey and mountain biking and my hobbies are photography, music, and anything techy. I am also a musician currently playing with a jazz and a rock band. My wife says I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none (jokingly). I have 5 wonderful children so between family, work, and hobbies I don't sleep much. I spent nearly 20 years in the field of Entomology before coming to Bill Bryan Kia. I was never in sales and frankly never wanted to be. My oldest son got accepted to Stetson University and his scholarships fell a little short so I decided to try sales so he wouldn't have to take out student loans. In the short time I have been in sales I have been "Salesman of the month" 4 times and I reached Elite status with Kia for selling 137 new Kias in 2012.
