Ilya Pinassi earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honours from the University of Guelph and completed a one year program on dealership management through the National Automobile Dealers Association in Virginia. In 2004 he joined his father to assist with the operations of Upper James Toyota and Red Hill Toyota. Since that time, Parkway Nissan of Stoney Creek was established and Ilya is responsible for the daily operations of all three locations. Prior to joining his family’s business, Ilya has had many different jobs and has been fortunate to travel a variety of countries. These experiences inform how he works with his clients and team members. However, it was his experience working with the Lexus Division of Toyota Motors Sales USA that ingrained his appreciation for a client first approach to business.
