Casey Parkin | Porsche Certified Brand Ambassador-Sales

Casey’s interest in and commitment to Porsche began back in the 1990s when he worked his way through college washing Porsches in Northeastern Ohio.   Like many lifelong Porsche enthusiasts he deeply appreciates the company’s unrivaled heritage of technological innovation and artistry—whether in his favorite Porsche of all time, the 906 (insert link:, or in today’s cutting edge hybrid supercar, the 918 (insert link:  In fact, of the two Porsches he has owned, the one on which he is currently working is a restoration of a 1972 914.  Drawing on his background in audio engineering, he has immersed himself in becoming expert in every aspect of the cars since he began selling them almost a decade ago.  He has been Porsche certified since 2007, a Porsche Club of America member since 2008, and a Porsche Brand Ambassador since the Fall of 2011.  In that time, he has also attended the Porsche Sport Driving School and has participated in multiple Porsche World Model launches.  And underscoring that his passion is not just part of his day job, in his free time, Casey is a sports car racing and Formula 1 fan and also, a sometime writer on Porsche topics (see his article on the 918 here:

Chas H Conklin

Chas H Conklin | Porsche Certified Brand Ambassador-Sales

Entering his 11th year with MileOne – and his 8th as a Porsche Certified Brand Ambassador, Chas brings a life-long involvement with the brand to our Porsche Center. He grew up in a Porsche-owning family and traveled around Germany in the back seat of his father’s 356A Coupe in the 1950’s. Chas purchased his first Porsche in 1974 (a 1968 Type 912), followed by a ’67 911S in 1979, and more-recently – a 1974 2.7 liter S Coupe (which he sold in a rare moment of weakness in 2004).This sincere (and almost genetic) passion for the brand is visible to everyone who buys their Porsche from Chas. Just ask his customers.
