  • Ryan Flores
    Brand Ambassador
    (562) 239-2307

     
    I started off my career in the automotive industry working in BMW service while completing my bachelors degree in Computer Science. During that time my passion for cars and "all things fast" grew and shortly following graduation I decided to pursue a career with Porsche. Since then my love for the brand has grew tremendously, my favorite car being the 911 Turbo S. When I am not at work I enjoy app development, going to the gym, and spending time with my family. I am probably one of the easiest people to get along with, so please feel free to reach out and I would be more than happy to help!
