  • Aaron Zielinski
    General Manager

    New to the Monterey Peninsula but native to Chicago, my career with Porsche started very early on. My first encounter with Porsche sales started out in 1996 with the 911 993's. From there it was a match made and I had found my calling. 20 years later I find myself in the most beautiful part of the country, the Monterey Peninsula with the same, most aspirational brand in the world, Porsche. For those that know me best would agree, I could see myself doing nothing else but being part of Porsche. I truly enjoy being around the cars and the people that share the same kind of passion, it really is a unique brand and culture. When I am not living Porsche, I enjoy spending all of my free time with my beautiful wife and 3 kids, exploring all the area has to offer.
