Congrats Arnie!

I've always heard and read nothing but good about A.J.

But I can also say that I've talked to him several times in person and he is a super cool and down to earth guy. He's like just another one of the car guys and is as open and easy to talk to as any other guy in the group. (matter of fact the first time I talked to him I didn't even know who he was until someone told me later lol) He has opened up LCU to us several times for tours and open houses and comes out to several of our local car events, LOG, etc. He is very accessible and does listen to the customers.

He really is hands on, an enthusiast as much as anyone else you've ever met, and knows the company from top to bottom. I don't think there could be a better guy for the position. This is very good news for US Lotus customers.
