  • Ron Kano
    Lifestyle Specialist

    Ron Kano was born and raised here in Honolulu, and is a 1996 graduate of Punahou School. He went on to Seattle University where he earned a B.S. in General Science along with a Minor in Japanese. Prior to the JN Group Inc, he was a Manager and Server at Le Bistro, a popular restaurant he helped open in 2001. After 11 years in the restaurant business, Ron decided it was time to switch careers. Being a self-proclaimed "car enthusiast", and the proud owner of an Audi S4, the move to Audi Hawaii seemed to be a logical one. He aims to service the clientele at Audi Hawaii, as well or better than he was able to for his guests, during his tenure at Le Bistro.

     

    Beginning his automotive career in 2013 at Audi Hawaii, Ron is very excited to be in the new Audi Honolulu showroom at Velocity Honolulu..  This "Audi Enthusiast" enjoys driving his Audi A6 TDI, riding in his wife Mia's Audi A5, and playing with their Maltipoo puppy...who is named Audi!"

  • Robert Townsend
    Audi Brand Specialist

    Robert Townsend is an Audi Brand Specialist that will help you grasp the true experience and feeling of how nice life is, when being part of the Audi ʻOhana. He became a true Audi fan after owning his first Audi A4 2.8L quattro 5 speed manual transmission back in 2005. Once he felt the sporty handling and performance combined with great attention to detail and luxury, his passion grew for the brand and decided to join the team as a lot attendant/detailer at Audi Honolulu in 2008. Growing up an island boy living here a majority of his life and passing on aloha spirit wherever he goes, "Life is all but a dream".  After two years of becoming familiar with all of the Audi features and functions, management gave him a shot in sales.  He also hosts and runs special events with the Audi Enthusiast Club. During his first year of sales he earned the privilege to attend a new car training launch in Germany which to this day he says, "was the best learning experience of my life".


    He now enjoys two Audi vehicles. One is a 2001 Audi A4 project car that he loves and drives on the weekend, and the other is also a fun, sporty, yet great on gas vehicle which is a 2013 Audi A3 TDI. With his free time he likes to attend car meets, DJ, skateboard, free dive, dance, and also attend concerts of all genres. "If you're ready to be part of the Audi ʻOhana and share aloha spirit on the road, come take a test drive and allow me the opportunity to share the knowledge of what it takes to become an Audi".

  • Ryan Arcia
    Audi Brand Specialist

    A native of California but raised in North Carolina, Ryan made it to Hawaii in early 2010 and have been in love with it ever since. His professional background is in the Biotech industry. It is his intention to use that technical knowledge to create an informative and smooth experience for our guests. He's lived in Kailua, Manoa, Tantalus, and now the Gold Coast.
     
    At 16 he saw an episode of Top Gear that featured the Audi RS4 and was immediately enamored by it. Shortly after that he was fortunate enough to drive an Audi S8 full out on an airstrip and, needless to say, he will never forget that experience. All of this has brought him here to Audi Honolulu where he could not be happier to join the team.
