Scott Zankl used his passion for finance and teaching people everything there is to know about the process and started an automotive leasing and financing business with his wife in 2000. Excell Auto Leasing and Finance was started out of his desire to give people who had difficulties acquiring auto loans the opportunity to purchase a car they could easily afford, but just had a few minor setbacks to their credit scores. They started by contacting all of the car dealerships in their area asking if they had customers who didn't get approved for loans, and if they would consider using them. After much persistence, they finally gained traction and were able to build a relationship with many dealerships and banks offering loans. A few years later, Scott transitioned his business towards buying and selling cars, and their business became Excell Auto Group offering luxury and exotic cars on top of competitive loan offers.
