Dustin (Founder & President/CEO):
Dustin Taylor has worked in the auction and online classified business since he was 16, starting his own small business to earn extra cash by buying and selling things on eBay, local classifieds listings and by word of mouth with friends. He has a knack for finding the best items at the cheapest prices and the hard to find ability to anticipate what the market will do. After being in this saturated industry for several years, he wanted to provide a way to avoid the headaches of interacting online with others to buy items. MerchMatch is his answer to the markets problems. Blessed to have met several long-life friends and acquaintances in his life journey, he is motivated by helping and seeing those people succeed in life in whatever way they define. Dustin is a self-proclaimed internet entrepreneur and when around him, you may notice yourself changing the way you think about what’s possible and having a clearer vision of how life can be better for yourself, even when times are tough.
