    Hello, my name is Chris Hunter.  I attended Azusa Pacific University where I majored in Marketing and Computer information systems.  My father ran in the Olympics for British Guyana. Thanks to my father's speed and agility that I inherited I was a sprinter in track at my University.  I Love Exotic cars and in my free time I enjoy restoring classic cars.


    Since the age of 16 I have worked in the automobile industry. I was able to work my way up starting at a parts store to now having the privilege of being the General Manager of DCH Toyota & Scion of Torrance.  Throughout my many years in this business I have worked for several major manufactures such as; Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Mazda, Mitsubishi.  However, I have worked for Toyota for over 15 years and I believe I have found my home with Toyota. Toyota has been by far the best Manufacture I have come across and it starts from the top level management teams. 


    As the General Manager, my team and I strive to provide our customers with an exceptional dealership-wide experience. It is our goal to maintain an accommodating and transparent environment in today's modernized automotive industry.
