Ken Price / Westbay Auto Parts

Westbay Auto Parts was started in 1961 by Robert Price with the first location being in Port Orchard.  Between 1980 and 1996, seven more locations were added bringing the total to eight locations in the Kitsap, Pierce, Jefferson, and Mason counties. Bob passed away in January 2000 and the business evolved with Jim Civilla and Ken Price taking the leadership roles at Westbay. In 2007, Westbay changed to the NAPA Auto Parts buying group and added four more locations. In November 2018, Shelton became the newest Westbay location bringing the total to thirteen locations. They are continuously looking for opportunities to grow Westbay.

Ken was born and raised in Port Orchard and graduated from South Kitsap High School in 1989. He attended the University of Puget Sound and graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business and Accounting. Ken started working at Westbay Auto Parts during the summers as a kid and began full time work in December 1993 as the Operations Manager. Ken became President of the company in January 2000.  Since that time, Westbay has grown.  Ken enjoys golfing, yardwork, and being outside.
