Aaron  Zielinski

Aaron Zielinski | General Manager

New to the Monterey Peninsula but native to Chicago, my career with Porsche started very early on.  My first encounter with Porsche sales started out in 1996 with the 911 993’s.  From there it was a match made and I had found my calling.  20 years later I find myself in the most beautiful part of the country, the Monterey Peninsula with the same, most aspirational brand in the world, Porsche.  For those that know me best would agree, I could see myself doing nothing else but being part of Porsche.  I truly enjoy being around the cars and the people that share the same kind of passion, it really is a unique brand and culture.  When I am not living Porsche, I enjoy spending all of my free time with my beautiful wife and 3 kids, exploring all the area has to offer.

John Bassett

John Bassett | Internet Sales Manager/Porsche Brand Ambassador

As the Director of Internet Sales and Certified Porsche Brand Ambassador, my goal is to exceed the expectations of each new and existing client, each and every time. I have been with Porsche of Monterey since August of 2009. I cannot think of a better location for this Porsche Center as Laguna Seca is a short 5 minute drive from us, and we are host the most prestigious week long Automobile event in the world, the Pebble Beach Concours d Elegance. During this time at POM I have developed some very special relationships with fellow auto enthusiasts. I myself have owned, tuned and raced far too many cars to list. I have also been an active SCCA member for 15 plus years now.

Guy Faulknor | Client Advisor

My father was a sports car enthusiast and passed on that passion to me. I bought my first Porsche when I was 21, a 1972 911E and restored it by myself. That one was sold for a 1971 914.6 and I went on to buy a 1983 triple black 911 cabriolet. My last Porsche was a 2001 911 Carrera cabriolet. During my Porsche love affair I have also raced in the SCCA. I can truthfully say that  driving a Porsche on a track is as comfortable and thrilling as it is driving it to the grocery store.

Originally from Southern California, I have lived on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula for over 27 years and feel like a real native. I am fortunate to have worked in many different industries at various capacities.

Porsche has been a passion for me since I was nine years old and saw one of the early 356s' in Candy Apple Red. Porsche of Monterey presents a unique opportunity to combine all my skills as a Web Developer, Marketer and Social Media tech. I live in Carmel with my wonderful husband and two cats.
