Work Experience

Enzo Performance

Co-Founder, Business Development

Enzo Performance was conceived around a simple but often overlooked need: a speed shop which combines real race expertise, high-end manufacturing and custom tuning under one roof. While there are hundreds of ‘speed shops’ out there —excellent ones in fact— there are only a handful of race-bred outfits with our level of tuning knowledge and manufacturing standards.

We’ve created a high-end ‘automotive boutique’ specializing in designing and fabricating high performance packages for exotic cars. We offer custom ECU tuning through proprietary software and world-class (AWD) dyno testing, as well as preventive maintenance services and performance upgrades for street, exotic and race cars.
