The Key Man was founded by Dylan Turriago in Charleston, SC. The inspiration for the company originated from his father and uncle’s locksmith shop “Spectrum Locks” in New York City, which opened in the mid 1980s. Growing up, Dylan learned extensive locksmith craftsmanship, methods of approach, and strong customer service skills. After attending the College of Charleston and meeting his girlfriend Elizabeth there, he realized the local Charleston community was in need of a trustworthy locksmith. As a kid at his dad’s shop, his favorite thing to do was program and cut car keys. His focus as a Charleston locksmith is automotive. Dylan enjoyed the satisfaction of helping others out of tough situations. Some of his hobbies growing up were riding dirtbikes, building computers, computer programming, and web design. With his tech savvy-skills, Dylan decided to build the website for The Key Man. After seamlessly gaining traction, he immediately sold his motorcycle and invested everything he had into the business. The Key Man has become one of Charleston’s fastest growing car locksmiths servicing thousands of vehicles since opening day.  Dylan’s vision for The Key Man is to create a household brand name.
