Mark Cobb | General Manager

My automotive career began in Tampa, FL in 1986. In over 30 years I have engrossed myself in the automobile business, I have performed nearly every position at a dealership. This includes parts, service, sales and management. In 2015 I was very fortunate to become General Manager. My passion and purpose in this industry is to lead a winning team. I was taught many years ago the importance of exceeding customers’ expectations. In order to achieve success, we must have a winning team that is dedicated to each and every customer. Without a doubt, customer satisfaction is our top priority. At Suncoast Porsche everything is all about you. Come in and experience the difference.
