I am a student in the automotive industry, every day I get the opportunity to discover, study and experience how our Porsche vehicles are assembled. The importance of genuine Porsche parts matters to our loyal customers which is important to me.
I have been in customer service for the past 15 years. My ongoing commitment to my customer service has developed a confidence in my ability to give excellent service.
I am surrounded by some of the greatest minds in the industry, which helps with my growth and development at Porsche.
Here is a quote I received my first day here at Porsche. “ YOU'RE STARTING AT THE TOP IN THIS INDUSTRY, LUXURY AND PERFORMANCE IS WHO WE ARE ” W.H.
Originally from Dublin, Ireland we emigrated to Calgary in 1992. Once I finished school I immediately hit the work force and began my career in the Construction Industry through a few different fields working my way up to Management. With 15 years of experience behind me I finally decided to pursue my passion. Being a lifelong automotive enthusiast has led me to become a part of the best automotive manufacturer in the world. It’s a privilege to work with the Porsche brand. I have participated in numerous driving/racing events. Race school, winter driving school, autocross, road course at Castrol and to top it off I was a member of a “chase car” at a Rally event in Ireland.
I am a father and a husband and look forward to the future with Porsche!
Originally from Ontario, I moved out to Calgary to start my secondary education after graduating high school. During my first few week in this city, I was lucky enough to meet a few key people who have allowed me to make the automotive industry an integral part of my life. Starting in customer service and reception to events and marketing, I have found my home with Porsche. I have been lucky to be with Shostak family of stores for over 7 years.
My love of learning continues to this day as you very likely will find me in classes the Calgary colleges and university upgraded and learning new skills to bring into Porsche Centre Calgary.

Greg studied aviation before shifting his focus on more grounded pursuits. He has over 12 years of experience in the automotive industry and has been a life-long fan of the Porsche brand.
A fascination with the technical world of automotive detailing coupled with his organisational and leadership skills paved the way to his current role on the Porsche team.
I was born and raised here in Calgary, AB, but I love to travel and get to the farthest destination possible. I started out in retail and was there for years when I finally got the opportunity to work as a receptionist here at Porsche and I was not about to pass up the offer. After not even a year of working as the receptionist my boss noticed my work ethic and decided to promote me to administrative assistant and I couldn’t say no! Now I have one of the best jobs and I’m glad to say that I feel happy to come to work every day. I love the atmosphere of Porsche, everything about the building just makes me feel at home. Let’s just say there’s a lot of personality within these four walls.
