Alex is an auto parts expert who was born and raised in Fresno. He went to Sunnyside High School and helped his dad on the farm after graduation. Specializing in Thompson and Muscat grapes, Alex spent six years on the tractor growing and harvesting crops that would be made into raisins and wine. Did you know that there’s a Sun-Maid headquarters in Fresno? Alex’s family has connections with the well-known company!
After spending some time on the family farm, Alex began his automotive career at Auto Zone. He was the Assistant Commercial Manager, meaning he ordered parts for wholesale. He worked at Auto Zone for about five years before continuing his expertise at O-Reilly Auto Parts. Soon, he would find himself expanding his career at a car dealership.
Lithia Ford of Fresno was Alex’s first step into the world of car dealerships where Dave Aguirre introduced him to Charles Bailey, Parts Manager of Lithia Mazda of Fresno. Alex worked as a Parts Advisor for Lithia Mazda of Fresno until John Harris bought the company and renamed it Harris Mazda of Fresno. Along with the company changing its name, Alex’s title was transformed to Parts Manager. Now that the company is under the ownership of Prieto Automotive as Fresno Mazda, Alex stayed with the company where he continues to assist customers as a Parts Manager.
When you come to the Fresno Mazda service center, you’ll find Alex hard at work making sure we stay stocked with quality parts. But during his free time, Alex loves to go off-roading in his 2016 GMC Canyon and he’s able to identify delicious barbecue. A man of many hobbies, you can also find Alex at the gun range. He loves talking about auto parts and his hobbies, so feel free to chat it up the next time you see him!
