Just take a look at Aaron’s Insta profile – @gtsdaddy – and you’ll find him at 4-years old in superman underwear, cape-and-all, in front of his uncle’s “Light Bronze Metallic” 964. Clearly, the Porsche passion started early, maybe even before he was born.
Aaron grew up in a small town in the southeast called North Miami Beach. Car culture runs deep in Miami, where Aaron drove and modified everything from Nissan’s turbocharged 300zx to supercharged Mercedes amg’s and plenty more.
Aaron spent a few years on the California coastline before planting his roots here in Colorado. For nearly ten years, he founded and was the CEO of two packaged food companies before joining the family-owned team here at Prestige Imports Porsche.
Rest assured, working with Aaron will result in transparency, honesty, and talks of beach-life in some shape or form.
I was born and raised in Colorado and have two beautiful, talented, and extremely smart daughters, ages 23 and 18. Both are CU Buffs attending school in Boulder. The eldest is class of 2019 and the younger class of 2023. I am incredibly blessed to have such extremely bright and very beautiful daughters.
I’m an avid golfer and skier, so the Colorado lifestyle has been an absolutely perfect fit for my entire life.
I have worked in the auto industry since 1989. I spent some time on the sales side of the business and have managed stores in a variety of roles; but I’ve found my passion in the finance office. I appreciate the opportunity to assist and guide our guests in the direction that best aligns with their financial priorities and to be able to satisfy their automotive needs.

A Colorado native, Allen Martinez was born and raised in the Mile High City. He brings, literally, a lifetime of repair and restoration experience in the Denver-area to Prestige Imports.
His love of restoring, repairing, and driving cars started at an early age, as did his career in the automotive industry. When he was a kid, Martinez “pestered and bugged” a neighbor who owned a body shop for a job; eventually, “he gave me the opportunity to work for him during the summertime. I started by sweeping floors, changing light bulbs, cleaning bathrooms, as well as scraping and removing undercoating.” Those humble beginnings would transform into more prestigious positions as his career progressed.
With many years of experience spent in a number of different contexts and companies, Martinez has learned quite a bit about what it means to work in the automotive industry, as well as what makes a good manager. As far as working within the Collision and Repair niche of the car business, he says: “Well, for me, it’s about restoring something back to the way it was beforehand. Being able to see a vehicle in pieces on a truck, and then it leaves [the body shop] like it hasn’t been in an accident: there’s something gratifying in that transformation.”
Prestige Imports’ Porsche Brand Ambassador Warren Kaye has worked in the automotive industry for close to sixteen years. Recently, he completed the sale of his two thousandth vehicle. While he readily admits that some “people have sold more” cars and have done so “faster,” Kaye’s career sales volume is a lofty number that merits celebration.
Even though he’s a sixteen year veteran of the industry, the business of selling cars still poses challenges for Kaye. “I would love to say that the job gets easier. I mean, the processes involved with a sale become easier. But the longer you’re in the business, the more you expect from yourself. So, in that respect, it’s never easy.” Of course, Kaye is quick to mention that, “after sixteen years, it’s hard to imagine doing anything else.”
As relatively new Coloradoan, Kaye carves out time to explore the natural wonders, scenic views, and open roads that make this state so special. “I love driving,” he says, “I’ve owned an Audi A6 for 5 or 6 years now… and just bought a Porsche Boxster.” When his work schedule and the weather permits, he enjoys heading up to the Conifer area for a drive, as well as “going for a hike.” Occasionally, he also “brings [his] pole and do some fly fishing.”
I have been with Prestige since 2012, but have been a part of the dealership since I was a kid because my father worked here throughout my childhood. I enjoy working with Porsche vehicles and the people that drive them. I believe there is not a better brand to be a part of. In my off time, I enjoy hanging out with my three kids and wife. I also enjoy playing music, especially drums and guitar. I can’t wait to see what Porsche has in store for us in the future.
