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.

Aldo Pinotti
Sales Manager
(866) 514-3250

I am excited to have joined the Lexus of Manhattan team in 2011. My success and foundation starts with my beautiful wife Rachel and my 1 year old Aldo Phillip. As a graduate of NYU in organizational sciences and having a love of working with people I decided to join the automotive industry. I have been very fortunate to learn and prosper in many different positions such as service drive retention associate, sales associate, and most recently sales manager. I truly enjoy being a brand ambassador for Lexus thanks in part to our excellent product quality and amazing customer satisfaction.  I am a motorsports enthusiast but enjoy the peace and quiet of nature every once in a while. Lastly, I am also fluent in Italian, French, Spanish should you want to conduct business.

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

Hi my name is Chris Walker and I am the L/Certified Manager here at Lexus of Manhattan. A little about me; I grew up in Nassau County, went to school at Fordham University and currently reside in Long Island City. I have been with the Bram organization for the last 7 years where I have had the privilege to move up in the company starting on the service side of the business as a Service Writer and then Service Manager where I got to see the quality and craftsmanship of our product and then moving over to the Sales side. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time out on the golf course, watching the Yankees and hanging out with my family.
