Keith Nelson, Owner

Keith is originally from southern Minnesota where he was born and raised.  He practiced law in his home town of Faribault for 28 years.  He also farmed in Morristown, MN for 25 years raising purebred Normande cattle.  Keith was active in the North American Normande Association being on the Board of Directors for 20 years, Vice President of the Association for 16 years and President for 1 year before moving to Kingman, Az. in November, 2008.  Keith’s involvement with the cattle association provided many opportunities for travel and making contacts around the world.  As an officer of NANA, he traveled to Belgium, France, Czech Republic, Columbia and Costa Rica, as well as extensively in the United States.  Keith served his local Lutheran Church as the church treasurer for 4 years and the Morristown American Legion as the SAL Squadron Commander for 9 years.  Starting with 3 members in 1999, his Squadron grew to over 120 members at the time that he left his position as Commander in 2008.  Keith enjoyed hunting, fishing and golfing while living in Minnesota.

When it became harder and harder to return to Minnesota after visiting his wife, who moved to Kingman in 2006 to be near her daughter, Keith decided to make Kingman his new home.  Deciding to embark on a new career, he purchased the assets and name of Kingman Cab in July of 2009.  His wife, Susan, passed away at about the same time.  Organizing a new Limited Liability Company under the name of Kingman Transportation Service, LLC, he began the transformation of Kingman Cab which continues and is ongoing. Keith has expanded the taxi cab fleet, launched the VIP service for non-ambulatory medical runs and airport transports.  His plans are to continue to expand the company into new areas of the transportation industry.  He believes that Kingman’s proximity to many area attractions provide for many opportunities in the travel industry. Complimenting his transportation business is a full service auto repair shop. Keith is active in his local church, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, where he serves as an elder and the church treasurer.  He also loves exploring the outdoors, being an avid Jeep 4-wheeler.  He also enjoys boating on Lake Mead and the Colorado River and learning to fish Arizona style.


Keith now spends a considerable amount of time in Costa Rica, his new home away from home.
