  • Kristen Townsend
    Brand Ambassador
    (434) 296-4147

    I've always had a passion for Porsche. My first venture selling Porsche cars was in 1995 in Northern California. In 2018, I was fortunate to travel to Zuffenhausen to tour the Porsche factory and take European delivery of my father's 2018 Porsche 911 Convertible - it was truly a once in a lifetime experience! I moved to Virginia in 2020 to spend time with my family on the East Coast and I'm thrilled to be back working with the Porsche brand!
