Growing up in Lima, Peru, Luis didn't envision himself living in Northern Virginia and working in the automotive industry. But, in what was supposed to be a Graduation present to visit his sister in the United States turned out to be the beginning of his career.
About 23 years ago, while traveling to the Washington Metro area to visit his sister, a family friend showed Luis around his small used car dealership. The friend offered Luis a part-time job. He liked sales so much, that part-time job turned into a full-time job and a career at a larger dealership.
Luis has been a part of the sales team at Brown's Alexandria Mazda since 1995. He lives over one hour away and passes four other Mazda Dealerships every day to get to Alexandria. He knows the drive is worth it because, as he says, "when I get to work, it feels like I'm home."
