After being honorably discharged from the Army in March 1994, I decided to follow in my father's footsteps and get into the career of automotive sales. Since 1994, I have held numerous positions from sales associate, business manager, used car manager, sales manager, and general sales manager. I am proud to be part of the sales staff here at Park Place and I enjoy using my experience and positive attitude in helping people purchase their dream car.

Senior Marketing Specialist
E-mail Jason Rinne

With years of varied marketing experience, Jason is finally able to merge his career talents with his enthusiasm for exotic and specialty cars. Born in Bellevue and having lived all over the Pacific Northwest, joining the team at Park Place has been a bit of a homecoming and a perfectly natural transition to the greater Seattle area. When not in the garage handling light service and repair on his families' BMWs, you can find him turning laps at the local kart track in one of his 4-stroke ItalKarts with his son.

Michael typically drives at least 3,000 miles each month and put 50,000 miles on his car last year, even with it being out of commission for three months. Michael loves the tranquility to be found on an open road where he can focus on 'finding the line'. He swapped an engine into the Audi and immediately took the car on a 1,000 mile road trip.
