  • Jeff Bachalo
    General Manager

    I have worked for Birchwood for close to 29 years, starting in April of 1989 and joined the Lexus family August of 2000.  

    My passion is motorsports.  I enjoy just about anything with wheels and/or engines.  Everything from snowmobiling, kart racing, motorcycling, biking, unicycling, to car racing (AutoX, Ice Racing, open track days,etc).  I  also love to travel and have been to 14 countries!

  • Darryl Tuck
    General Sales Manager

    I have been in the automotive industry for 21 years and with Birchwood for almost 14 years. 4 years ago I joined the Lexus team as GSM. 

    I love everything that has wheels and a motor especially motorcycles.  I currently ride a 2011 Victory Cross Country. My main passions include 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.

    I can't forget to mention that I live in Oak Bluff with my wife Karen and we love spending time with our three cats Zannu, Joey, and Eddie!

  • Aaron Ledohowski
    Sales Manager

    I have worked for Birchwood for 5 years. I joined the Lexus family in 2017 as Sales Manager.

     

    During the warmer months of the year - I try to get in as much golf as I can. I'm still not very good at it though! I'm a bit of a food connoisseur and make an effort to try new places and new foods when I get the opportunity. With family out in BC, I attempt to get out there when I can for visits. I love the scenery along with the activities such as boating, paragliding etc!

     

    Of course, I can't forget to mention a lot of my time is occupied by my dog Theodore - a Bichon Frise/American Eskimo mix (looks like a Golden Doodle).
