  • Bill Rowan
    Brand Specialist

    As a lifetime "Gearhead" after retiring from thirty years in the Investment Banking business eight years ago, I had the opportunity to join JN Group at Audi Honolulu in sales and finance. Now working at the new state of the art facility, Velocity, with the most prestigious and exotic cars and motorcycles in the world all under one roof is a fantastic opportunity. Living in Honolulu for thirty two years I enjoy world travel, flying, surfing, diving, driving exotic cars and motorcycles, so working with these brands at Velocity is great.
