    About

    As owner of Rusty Eck Ford and several other Missouri and Kansas auto dealerships, Les Eck applies an in-depth knowledge of car sales and service. Rusty Eck Ford offers high-quality new and used cars, each displayed and viewed in a service-focused atmosphere that prioritizes customer satisfaction. Les Eck has built the dealership into the fifth-leading Ford dealership globally and the top dealership of any kind statewide. Also a dealer of Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and Kia automobiles, he cultivates expert awareness of all available models. Les Eck stands out as a second-generation dealership owner. His father opened Rusty Eck Ford in 1953 in Haven, Kansas. Les Eck graduated from Haven High School and attended Wichita State University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in business administration. He followed in his father's footsteps beginning only a year after his college graduation, when he purchased a Ford Lincoln Mercury dealership in Leavenworth, Kansas. He has since returned to the Wichita area, where he has become an award-winning business leader and contributor to numerous community outreach organizations. Mr. Eck also stands out as the founder of the Adopt-a-School organization. Adopt-a-School began as a fundraising channel to help teachers and students acquire classroom supplies and has since grown to support a variety of nonprofit and outreach organizations. Meanwhile, Adopt-a-school continues to sponsor an annual golf tournament to benefit classroom teachers.
