Our BA History


Russ Kulle (Founder)

After two decades of running new car dealerships in Dallas, Russ Kulle was at a crossroads. His five kids were growing up, and he did not want to miss any more of their youth. Russ was very thankful for the experiences and customers from those years as general manager, but he was ready to make a change that would afford him the one thing he could not get while running new car dealerships: time.

In 1996, Russ opened Bankers Liquidation Outlet in Lewisville and his independent car business was born. The banks that he worked with while managing new car dealerships asked if he would be interested in liquidating their foreclosures. Thus, Bankers Liquidation Outlet was on its way and never looked back. In 2003, Russ purchased the perfect location on I35E in Denton and relocated Bankers Liquidation Outlet.

In the summer of 2011, Russ' oldest son Dan Kulle jumped on board, proud to be part of the family business. Dan took over the family business in 2016, rebranding it with the name Bankers Autos. Although the name slightly changed, the mission for our dealership remains the same: Offer GOOD CARS to GOOD PEOPLE. Russ Kulle's legacy lives strong within our staff and our family of customers here at Bankers Autos!
