Meet Troy Waller


Troy Waller graduated from Fort Dodge Senior High in 1987. He continued his studies at Iowa Central Community College and Iowa State University. At ISU he prepared for a finance career, but an old passion for working on automobiles presented an attractive entrepreneurial opportunity.


“This was something I had a knack for,” he said, explaining how Troy Waller Auto Body came into being.


The small, 1,600-square-foot shop that was the company’s original home quickly became too cramped. The business grew fast. Almost exactly two years after it was launched, Waller moved the company to 508 S. 32nd St. It has continued to grow significantly in the subsequent decades.


After nearly a quarter of a century at the helm of his body shop and other entrepreneurial ventures, he said the aspect of being a business owner that he most enjoys is dealing with customers.


“I’ve always liked meeting new people and being able to help people,” Waller said.
