Csaba is from Targu Mures, which is located in the heart of Transilvania, Romania. He has 15 years of sales experience, 10 of which in the pharmaceutical industry.

Csaba loves anything outside: from the mountains to the seas.

Mason Gilchrist
Sales Consultant
949-203-1681

Mason was born and raised in Seattle, and was struck with the Porsche bug at an early age. After his dad purchased a Cayman S, he was hooked, and knew he wanted to be a part of the legendary Porsche brand. Upon graduating from college, he decided against pursuing a career in Physical Therapy, and secured a job as a lot attendant at a Porsche dealer. In just six months, Mason worked his way up to service advisor, where he enjoyed representing the brand and interacting with its clients. But after several years there, sunny Southern California called, and he was able to continue working for the brand he'd grown to love. Throughout his time with Porsche, Mason has become a Porsche Certified Brand Ambassador, as well as a Porsche Classic Service Advisor, and counts the 550 Spyder and 911 R as some of his favorite example of the iconic marque. In his off time, you'll find him playing basketball and filming videos for his YouTube channel.

Mark Sternberg
Sales Consultant
(949) 668-6353

Mark is passionate about helping his customers, but at his core, he's a die-hard car nerd. He has worked in the automotive industry as a journalist, at the manufacturer level and even at one of the world's most prestigious automotive museums.

 

As far as he can tell, his family has been in the car business for as long as there've been cars; so naturally his roots with Porsche go back to before he was born. Here's a fun fact: If you look closely at the Porsche 944 which famously starred in Sixteen Candles, you'll notice a license plate frame which reads 'Norb Kornak Porsche.' Norb was Mark's grandfather who owned a Porsche dealership in Aurora, Ill when John Hughes shot the now-classic film.

Jon Lewis
Service Advisor
949-668-6361

Porsche passion is only accepting the best. . . no compromise.

 

My favorite Porsche is the 959. It was the first road car to have adaptive suspension and tire pressure monitoring - incredible feat in 1986. I also love the fact the Porsche will never adapt to a push button start like the other car makers. Porsche will always have a turn key start an essential element to the driving experience. 

 

I love my job. I get to represent the best brand and interact with passionate Porsche customers. I have spent 23 years in the highline automotive industry. I'm thrilled to be part of the exciting future of Porsche.
