Service & Parts

Dan Pokarney
Service and Parts Director

Dan started his illustrious career in the luxury automotive business as soon as he finished high-school, working in the parts department for his local Jaguar dealership in Southern California. It was immediately apparent that his people skills and exemplary customer service far surpassed that of a typical 18 year old, and he was quickly elevated to management. A short time later he moved with his father to Honolulu and took over as the parts manager of the Jaguar, Land Rover, Rolls Royce, and Ferrari dealership, priding himself on outstanding customer service. After 21 years there and having become a part owner, he decided to move back to the Bay Area to build a family and became parts and service director for Los Gatos, then servicing Bentley, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Saleen, and Lotus.

There are few people with as much experience in the luxury car segment as Dan, and he is in unparalleled in the immense task of managing both clients and employees alike. Each day he imbues all facets of our dealership with his upbeat, hard working attitude, incredibly trustworthy service, and true love for exotic cars. In his free time you can find Dan kite surfing, water skiing, or snowboarding.

Mike Risser
Shop Foreman

In the automobile business for over 15 years, Mike shares that he gained a new appreciation of performance cars after getting behind the wheel of the McLaren MP4-12C. The raw power and ability to hit a corner on the track at well over 100 mph makes him feel like the McLaren is "glued" to the track. Mike believes that you cannot ask for a better made high-performance vehicle, or one that boasts a sleeker design. 


Outside of work, family, and friends, working out is one of Mike's main passions (he does enjoy spending quality time with a Yamaha R6 and Ducati 1098s, however). Mike enjoys the freedom he feels on a motorcycle and the adrenaline rush of racing on the track.

Tom Price
Dealership Principal and CEO

Our CEO, Tom Price, has a long history of success in the Northern California Automotive market. He always loved cars and started in the business working for Ford Motor Company for eight years. He then spent two years working for San Francisco Lincoln-Mercury, before buying an Oldsmobile dealership in 1976. From that dealership, Tom grew First America Automotive into a 30-dealership enterprise with revenue of $1.6 billion. Plans for an IPO changed when the public market cooled in mid 1999 and the company merged with Sonic Automotive, America's 3rd largest automotive retailer.

After 3 years as Vice Chairman, Tom reestablished his entrepreneurial independence and formed the Price Family Dealership Group, a collection of dealerships operated with equity partners. In 2003 he partnered with Adam to buy Toyota Sunnyvale and form PriceSimms. Ten stores later, they haven't looked back.

Tom is well-known as a classic and exotic car collector. "I began racing vintage cars 25 years ago," Tom says, "and since then I've competed in over 600 races and rallies and won 4 Ferrari-Maserati Historic Championships. The fact is, I just love driving special cars in the way they were designed."

Tom is also very dedicated to the Community and is one of the Largest Supporters in Marin County of Special Olympics and Breast Cancer.
