My name is Lina Policaro, General Manager at Northwest Lexus. I started my career in the fashion & entertainment industry working in both Toronto and New York City. After a decade-long stint, I decided to follow my innate passion for my family’s automotive business. Working within the sales & finance departments, I eventually worked my way up to managerial positions and eventually to the General Manger role. While managing a dealership, I was also able to attend and graduate from the prestigious NADA Academy, Dealership Management program in November 2014. My favourite thing about Northwest Lexus are the people & the culture. From our guests to our employees, I am proud to work at such a dynamic dealership. In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my large, but very close-knit family and volunteering at various Toronto charitable and arts initiatives.

My name is Chris Valdez, Service Manager at Northwest Lexus. I went to Centennial College to pursue my passion for modifying cars and helping my family’s automotive business. After school I decided to take a different path that led me to working for my first dealership in 2001 as a Greeter/Receptionist. After a period of time, I worked my way up the ladder and found myself working at a Lexus dealer in 2003 as a Service Advisor. This started my long affection for the Lexus brand, and it was also where I met my wife. Years later I am happily married with two kids and overjoyed to still be with Lexus. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies and spending time with my family.

One of the great parts of my job is seeing how guests trust us with their vehicles year after year… and sometimes even decade after decade. I think Lexus builds the best-engineered vehicles on the road, especially my personal favourites the LS 400, the LFA and the 2011 IS 350 AWD. When I’m not working on something automotive, you’ll find me on one of my N+1 bicycles, on a plane going somewhere I’ve never been before, or trying out a new restaurant. Stop by Northwest Lexus and say hello!
