  • CJ Wilson
    Dealer Principal

    Two-time Major League All-Star southpaw CJ Wilson is a family man with a lifelong love of high-quality automobiles. "I'm a car guy," CJ likes to say. "I grew up at the dirt track, my dad was on the pit crew, I've always wanted to be a race car driver. I've always just been a car guy." CJ launched his race team in 2010, followed by his first dealerships in Chicago. "Unlike the big mega dealers, we actually care about your business," CJ says. "We're going to treat you like a neighbor because that's how we think of ourselves." A father of two, CJ lives in Fresno with his wife, Lisalla, working toward his dream of driving in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

  • Mazy Hassanpour
    General Manager

    Mazy brings over 22 years of automotive experience to Porsche Fresno. Mazy's passion for Porsche ignited when he first watched Steve McQueen and his 1970 911 S, in slate gray, in the movie Le Mans. The passion has only grown during Mazy's 14 years with Porsche -- a perfect alignment of passion and career. Just one of Mazy's many accomplishments with Porsche was serving on its eight dealer member Sales and Marketing roundtable with Porsche Cars North America executives for three consecutive years.

  • Aaron Miller
    General Sales Manager

    I have been in the luxury automobile industry for eight years, and with Porsche for the last three. A lifetime car enthusiast, my love for cars came from my father who introduced me to amazing automobiles at a very early age. I was officially hooked on the Porsche brand through my 2013 Guards Red Boxster and continue that enjoyment with my 2017 Guards Red 911 coupe. "If you want to spec out a truly custom, unique Porsche, I am always thrilled to help out!" Aaron says. I also love music, play and teach several instruments, and once played oboe with the Bakersfield Symphony.

  • Shane Atkins
    Service Manager

    Love the experience of being surrounded by Porsche's each and every day. In 2015 I became a global certified brand ambassador and I have always been a huge Porsche enthusiast. Since the year 2000 I have been working with and around automobiles and have been here at Porsche Fresno since April 2014. Recently I was promoted to service manager and I very much am enjoying my new position here. In my free time I enjoy hiking/exploring the Sierras and seeking out new adventures!

  • Ted Kurtz
    Finance Manager

    I am a recent transplant from Los Angeles and a 23-year veteran of the luxury auto industry having spent the majority of that time in Beverly Hills. I started my career as a sales representative and have filled almost every position of sales management but discovered my favorite position was Finance Manager. It was my wife who introduced me to Fresno. Born and raised three miles from here, she graduated from Bullard High School and attended Fresno State. I quickly fell in love with the area and the people and was thrilled at the opportunity to join this team.

  • Mariah Juarez
    Finance Manager

    I started with Porsche in 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA as a receptionist and worked my way up to Finance manager. I decided to move back home to the central valley and wanted to continue with the brand, so I came here. I love working for Porsche - it's like no other brand in the world. It's true when they say Porsche...there is no substitute. My dream car is a Targa 4S in Agate Gray.

  • Bob Van Vliet
    Certified Porsche Brand Ambassador

    I have been involved in the automotive aftermarket for more than 10 years, including time in Germany developing suspension products for the U.S. market. Motorsport is part of my heritage: I was raised around circle track racing in the Midwest, where my grandfather was the crew chief and his father was the driver. I have competed in all types of racing, including off-road, drag and autocross. "My first drive in a Riviera Blue 911 at 16 changed my life and I have been a fan ever since," Bob says. When not involved with the car world, I enjoy time with friends, great food, hanging by the pool and trips to the coast, with a little golf thrown in for good measure.
