Darryl Tuck
General Sales Manager

I have been in the automotive industry since 1998 and with Birchwood since 2004. When I first started with Birchwood, I was as a Product Advisor for Birchwood Toyota/Lexus. During my time with Birchwood, I have held Financial Services Manager and Sales Manager positions with Birchwood Chevrolet, Birchwood Nissan/Infiniti and Birchwood BMW/Mini. In 2015, I was lucky enough to return home to the brand I love and join the Lexus team as General Sales Manager. We have an absolutely incredible team here at Lexus and am really looking forward to what the future holds.

My passions include anything to do with cars and motorcycles. I currently ride a 2011 Victory Cross Country motorcycle. I also love camping and all forms of music, mainly focusing on guitar and bass. Summer is my favourite time of year but I am happy that our winters are filled with sunshine rather than rain and cloud.

Most importantly, I love spending time with my wife Karen and our two cats Joey, and Eddie.

Aaron has worked for Birchwood for several years. He joined the Lexus family in 2017 as Sales Manager.

 

During the warmer months of the year - he tries to get in as much golf as he can. He's still not very good at it though! He claims he is a foodie at heart and makes every effort to try new places and new foods when he get the opportunity. With family out in BC, he tries to get out there when he can for visits. He says he loves the scenery along with the activities such as boating, paragliding etc!
