    General Manager

    I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for considering doing business at Lexus of Manhattan and tell you a little bit more about myself and our amazing dealership. I came to Lexus of Manhattan as a Finance Manager 15 years ago and currently have over 21 years of successful sales and management experience. I currently reside in Oldbridge, New Jersey and when I am not at the dealership, I enjoy the company of my wife and best friend Suzana, and our 2 wonderful children: Jacob and Fatima. Some of my hobbies include golf and fishing. If at any time I can personally assist you, please never hesitate to stop by or call me.

    (866) 514-3250

    I am a native of Long Island where after serving my country in the Marine Corp I decided to join the automotive industry. I pride myself on the amazing relationships I have built over the last 30 years. For the last 12 years I have been a manager with the Bram Organization. I am an avid golfer, carpenter, and enjoy American Jiu-Jitsu. Lastly, besides my wife and family my second love is my 2008 Lexus SC430
