    General Manager

    Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, FL, I graduated from Cardinal Gibbons High School and attended the University of Findlay (OH) on an athletic scholarship. I was a four year letter winner for the University of Findlay Oilers and a member of two National Championship teams (95, 97). As a leader and  team captain in 1997 the Oilers went undefeated (14-0) and won the National Championship title for the second time in three years. I graduated the University of Findlay in 3.5 years with a degree in Business and Marketing and went to work for Marathon Oil Company. I decided to move back to South Florida in 1998 and went to work in the car business.  Working for Audi has truly been a rewarding experience.  Our core values of providing stellar customer service and exceeding our sales targets on a continuous basis has resulted in a high honor from the Audi brand.  Recently, we were inducted into the Audi Elite Magna Society, a position reserved for only ten of the best performing Audi dealerships in the country; Audi Coral Springs being one of them.  As of mid-2012, Audi has reported monthly record Sales for 19 Consecutive Months! Due to the expertise of our Audi Brand Specialists, our service staff, and our entire team, we've truly become am Audi Family.

    I'm an actual "Florida Native" growing up in South Florida. I graduated from Cardinal Gibbons High School and went on to become an Ohio University Graduate. As a student, I was a four year starter and letter winner for the Ohio University Football team. I moved back down after school and have been helping people with their transportation needs ever since.

    Having over a decade of experience in Automotive Retail, as well as IHG sales, including over 4 years currently with Audi Coral Springs, I'm your "Car" Guy; new or pre-owned.

    My favorite thing to do is make the impossible deal a reality. I'm a Certified Sales Manager and have completed a 6 day "Audi Brand Event" where I became an "Audi Super Fan".

    Audi is by far the most impressive brand I have ever worked with and they continuously strive to add more content and finer materials every year. The hardest part of my job is figuring out which Audi I like best.

    Contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached via email ewalsh@audicoralsprings.com or at 954.509.8960 ext 439.

    Mark London



    I was born and raised in Western Michigan, working for Wolverine World Wide for 13 years. I moved to Florence Kentucky where I embraced the automotive retail business. Automotive retail has taken me from Northern Kentucky, to Columbus, Ohio, all the way to Cleveland, Ohio, and South Florida. It is an exciting profession and there's never a dull moment. It's also a profession with no excuses, and that's what attracted me to the Audi Brand.

    Mike Rakowski


    My name is Mike Rakowski.  I am the Corporate Fleet Specialist at Audi Coral Springs.  I am originally from Toronto, Canada.  I went to Northwood University in West Palm Beach, FL to pursue a degree in the Automotive Business.  My time in Florida was supposed to be for nine months (one semester) as the Canadian Automotive School I attended had an articulation agreement with Northwood.  Essentially I jumped right to my senior year.  I have now been living here in Florida for almost nine years, I never left!
     
    After graduating in 2004 with my Bachelors of Business Administration majoring in Automotive Marketing/Management I started with Audi.  I have been at this dealership ever since, I am approaching my eighth year here with every year being better than the last.
     
    A few years after graduating with my B.B.A. I needed another excuse to tell my parents why I am still in Florida.  In 2006 I started my Masters Degree (MBA) at Palm Beach Atlantic University.  I graduated in 2008, and now my family knows that I am here to stay.  Pursuing my Masters Degree was a great life experience.  It was certainly very difficult working the long hours in the car business and attending night school, I even did a semester abroad in China.
     
    My experience with Audi and this dealership has been incredible.  I have wonderful clients that keep coming back.  I am known for a strong work ethic and will work very hard to provide the best experience imaginable.  I am always available to help.  You can reach me on my cell phone 561-629-3377 or by email mrakowski@audicoralsprings.com

    Richardson Baptiste



    Hometown : Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
    Bachelors Degree in Music Composition from UCF. Go! Knights!

    I was born and raised in Port-Au-prince, Haiti. From an early age, my parents taught me to be passionate about what I do and I'll succeed. If you love what you do, it doesn't feel like work. I've been in the automotive business for about seven years. I like it very much, especially working for Audi Coral Springs, where a friendly atmosphere makes what would normally be tedious tasks, a pleasure.

    I work a lot of hours in this business. To keep my life balanced and reduce stress I enjoy a lot of activities that help me stay active both physically and mentally. I love playing tennis and have been doing so for the past 14 years. I jog a few times a week to keep my sanity. What I love doing the most is composing music, whether I'm on the piano improvising, or on the guitar playing scales/chords.

    It continues to amaze me that after being in this business for 7 years, no two transactions are ever the same. Every client has different wants and needs, yet a good sales associate will go above and beyond to cater for his clients desire. If you are in the market for a vehicle and want to have the best car buying experience, then come to Audi Coral Springs and see me .

    I grew up in Ft Lee, New Jersey, went to High School there, then worked my way through college. First, attending Bergen Community College and earning an AA degree in Business Management, and then onto Ramapo College, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Economics and Political Science. At both colleges I played Varsity Basketball and learned the importance of dedication and teamwork. While in school I worked part time, and then full time after graduating, with Alusuisse Metals. I worked for this Swiss Company in NYC for 12 years and learned everything and anything about the import/export metals business. The company merged with another giant and offered me a position in St Louis, Mo, which I declined. I decided to move to South Florida and got started 32 years ago at VW/Subaru, then on to Pontiac, Cadillac for 12 years and then Lincoln Mercury for 11 years. Finally, I moved up to the big time with Audi in 2009. I switched Audi dealers in April, 2013 and joined Audi Coral Springs as CPO Manager. I'm very excited to be part of the Magna Elite Dealer team and look forward to maintaining the dealership's prestigious rankings. I truly enjoy the business and the people I meet because of it. My goal is to keep it simple, make you happy and help you understand why Audi is such a great automobile.

An avid Spurs supporter, Tottenham not San Antonio, and a Sports Car disciple who has been to most major tracks in Europe and the USA.


    My career in auto sales has been entirely with the Audi brand for which I have a passion as bright as the Florida sun.
