I moved to Oregon in 1980 and started my career in the automotive business in 1985. I joined the Tonkin Family of Dealerships in 1991 as General Sales Manager at the Dodge store. Shortly after, I was promoted to General Manager in 1994. In 1999, we decided to add the Kia brand to our row of dealerships in Gladstone, Oregon. I ran the two dealerships consecutively until 2010. In March 2009, I was asked to lead the well established team at Ron Tonkin Honda.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Management and Planning. I have been married for 25 happy years and have two boys. In my spare time, I like to get involved in the community. I was a board member of KOMAK, a nonprofit corporation providing financial assistance to cancer patients. I was also a recipient of the Community Partner award from NW Impact. I enjoy playing golf and watching soccer. My favorite teams are FC Barcelona, Chelsea and of course our very own Portland Timbers.
I would like to personally invite you to visit us here at Ron Tonkin Honda to meet our professional and friendly staff and experience our superior customer service.
