    General Manager

    I began my career in automotive retail at an early age, knowing that my goal was to eventually become a successful dealer.  I was fortunate to grow up in the industry, where I worked summers at my family’s stores and learned how to treat guests “the right way.”  After receiving my college degree, I held management positions at three top-performing Toyota dealerships before making my way to serving as the General Manager of John Elway Cadillac. I am proud of my experience at John Elway Cadillac, where I led a team that routinely exceeded customer expectations and achieved the #1 sales status in the state of Colorado for each of the 5 years I was there.  Under my leadership, John Elway Cadillac received some of Cadillac’s most prestigious accolades, including:  Dealer of the Year, Mark of Excellence, Denver Area Sales Champion, and Top Cadillac Moments Western Region Acceleration award to name a few.  I have also played an active role in with Cadillac by serving on their Western Region Strategy Board and National Dealer Council.
     
    I am ready to take what I have learned and apply it to Porsche, the pinnacle of luxury.  I have learned how to build an incredible team with a culture that places a premium on providing the highest customer service.  I am supremely confident in my knowledge and fresh outlook of the car business. I have no doubt that we will exceed your expectations.

    Hello, my name is Matthew, but most call me Matt. I am a native to Salt Lake City, Utah.

    My first automotive related job was here at Strong Porsche/Audi as a tire technician busting tires for the high-end vehicles. My first introduction into sales was at Manassas Dodge and Subaru in 2008. After living in Virginia for a couple years I came back to Salt Lake City where I worked at Mark Miller Subaru for the previous 15 years and I am nothing but thrilled to be involved with the Porsche name plate and a great company Porsche Salt Lake City

    Cars have always been a passion but my love of people in customer service is something I’m even more passionate about.

    The model of Porsche that I would like to own is the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. I’ve always been a fan of that wagon shape and having it be an all electric Porsche would be the crown jewel of electric cars.

    My passions are my two daughters Clare and Isla. I love traveling to the Asian Countries.  My wife is from Taiwan and we frequently go back every other year to visit her side of the family.  I’m not fluent in Mandarin but I know just enough to get into trouble.

    Hi, I am Ryan. I am from Kaysville, UT. I started in the auto industry in June of 2020 with a Hyundai dealership and then became a Finance Manager with the Genesis sister brand shortly after. Before that, I began working at the age of 14 at bike shops and raced competitively in time trials and criteriums. I am currently also studying marketing at Utah Valley University.
    I’ve been into cars for as long as I can remember; my dad took me to the Utah Auto Show when I was 2 years old and sat in every car there. Besides the two years I was gone serving an LDS mission, we haven’t missed an Autoshow since. The 1996 911 Turbo in Fly Yellow has been my favorite model since I was 9 years old. I had a family friend take me for a ride in his near Cannon Beach, Oregon and I still remember feeling like I was in a rocket ship. The speed, sound, and looks converted me to Porsche, and I’ve been a fan ever since. I would love to someday own a modern 911 in an identical spec to that first one I rode in.
    I enjoy working on cars, detailing cars, and long drives through the Utah canyons. Aside from all things automotive, I enjoy spending time at my cabin in Island Park, Idaho. We go up several times a year to spend time hiking, canoeing, or just enjoying the time with family.

    Here at Porsche SLC, virtually every car we sell is a dream car. So I’m likely just as excited about your car as you are.

    Porsche Pro / Social Media Manager

    My name is Eddie Stone. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Coincidently (or not), just a few miles from Porsche’s North American headquarters. My career in the automotive industry officially began in 2020 with Porsche Salt Lake City. However, my passion for cars – specifically Porsche – began much earlier when I was just five years old. I attended a car show with my father, and it was there that I first saw a true work of art: a Porsche 911 Targa G-Body in Tobacco Metallic. I’ve been hooked ever since!
    When I’m not at the dealership or driving my Porsche 997.1 911S (manual, of course) I’m usually snowboarding, shooting film photography, hiking, or building vintage motorcycles. Still, I always look forward to coming in to Porsche Salt Lake City so that I can work with the best automotive brand and the best automotive enthusiasts in the world!

    Hello my name is Mike & I am from Utah. I started in the auto industry in 1984, right out of high school. 

    In March of 2020 (4 days before COVID-19 blew up) I moved to Jacksonville, FL to help open a Bentley / Maserati store. Florida was beautiful but I wanted to be home around friends and family. So I moved back to Utah in March 2021.

    My favorite Porsche is a 911 Targa. It is sleek, clean and classic.

    I love sports and playing golf.

    My name is Douglas and I was born in Cameron, Texas, but my family is from Guatemala. I moved to Utah when I was 4 years old. I’ve been in the automotive industry since 2010 and prior to then, I worked for Sears as a tools representative. I’m a huge fan of Porsche vehicles. My favorite Porsche Model is the Taycan because I like the way they look and the way the technology is evolving. When I’m not at the dealership I’m likely enjoying one of my hobbies: playing billiards or spending time with my family outdoors in the mountains camping, fishing, or hiking. I also enjoy working on cars by taking them apart and making them faster. When it comes to my customers I have an entrepreneurial mindset  – so getting the job done is my top priority. I also speak, read  and write fluently in Spanish so if you prefer to speak en español, come see me.
