Tausif Raza, Sales Manager (Urdu-Pashto-Punjabi*)

The early stages of my career have been met with obstacles, which with perseverance and determination, I was able to overcome. I have been standing for 10 years in the automotive industry. It does not occur to one that being a non-English speaker, at first, and buying a fresh suit along with determination, for an interview, can put me in the position I currently hold. In the first two months of my 10 year career, I already achieved being the top sales consultant; from there, I have only been moving upwards towards greater things. As an individual, I am self-driven and motivated by a code of ethics that I was raised by; so long I sustain these two elements, everything else comes after.


Finance Department

Josh Cruz, Finance Manager (Spanish*)

Hi, my name is Josh Cruz, and I'm lucky enough to be one of the business managers here at VW of Nanuet. I've been in the car business for eight years. I started my career at DCH Honda of Nanuet as a sales consultant, moving my way up to finance at the same dealership. I then took my talents to Wide World BMW, gaining additional experience. 

Now, I'm here at VW of Nanuet with the best sales team and dealership staff of them all. We are dedicated to ensuring our customers have the best overall experience with their new vehicle purchase. 

When I'm not working, I enjoy watching and playing sports, particularly basketball and football. Go Bills! I also have a beautiful fiancé and a 6-year-old baby boy by the name of Jaden Joshua Cruz. 

I look forward to assisting you with your vehicle purchase and delivering a painless, exceptional experience.

Leslie Rodriguez, Finance Manager (*Spanish)

I have recently been introduced to the automotive industry. However, I have recently finished my undergraduate degree in psychology. As a sales consultant, I aim to provide my customers with exceptional service. I look forward to progressing in this field alongside expanding my skill set that will help advance my overall career.


Sales Department

Moniceea Boyde, Certified Product Specialist

I was introduced to the automotive industry about three years ago as an internet sales representative for Honda. Also, I recently received an undergraduate degree in psychology and I am currently receiving an MBA in finance which will allow me to grow and develop my career within the industry. I strive to deliver the best experience for our customers and guarantee their satisfaction through understanding and fulfilling their automotive and financial needs.

Aaron Albert, Certified Product Specialist

Oday Radi, Certified Product Specialist (Arabic-Hebrew*)

As a young adult seeking to find a balance between my academic and professional careers, my past year's experience in the automotive industry has been enriching and a catalyst for my self-growth, knowledge, and interpersonal skills. Although I started in internet sales, I see myself rapidly growing on the sales floor and providing the customers with the utmost service that best suits their needs.

Service Department

Sterling McKenzie, Service Manager

Tarazia Trice, Service Advisor

The past two years have been a fruitful experience within the automotive industry. As I began to grasp and invest my time in excelling in the field of service, I began to see growth, not only in the profession itself, but with the transparency and service I provide our clients with. With my new title as an Express Service Advisor, I aspire to further my knowledge, experience, and position within this field and continuously improve the version of myself that I seek to become.

Amanda Ciborski, Service Advisor

Leaving a print on the client is the reason I wake up every day to provide the best service in my field. Throughout my 16 year run in the industry, especially in VW, I find leisure in detailing clients about everything their vehicles might need to assure full functionality and safety on the road. I am currently a Master Certified VW Service Consultant and aim to deliver services that come with holding such a title.

Chrys Kenny, Service Advisor


Parts Department

Axel Alvarez, Parts Manager

The 25 years involvement in the automotive industry encapsulates different opportunities and experiences that led to the current position I hold today as the Parts Manager. My journey has been influenced by both my academic and circumstantial paths. While I started out as a driver and worked the counter at a former dealership during the day, I was also pursuing my BA in Social Sciences and MBA in Business Administration throughout the evening. That, mixed with the family-driven passion towards the automotive industry, fuels the drive I have today to still be standing in this industry holding the current position. Outside of work, I am a proud father of two boys and two girls and a recent grandfather of one grandson.
