Lindsey Tinsley
Marketing Manager
614-864-5180

I grew up in Clintonville, Ohio and started in automotive in 2010 in Dublin, Ohio. I took a part-time job in the business development center to transition out of surety bail bonds and fell in love with the culture and the cars. I started working for Byers in 2012, as a marketing assistant, and have since advanced my education in managing marketing and digital design & graphics. 


My children Cadence, Trenton and Trew like to keep me pretty busy with AAU basketball, golf, Westerville Crew, and football. We also like going to the shooting range, cooking dinner together and going out for ice cream but our favorite place to be on Sunday morning is Grace Fellowship in Arlington, Ohio

I serve on many committees that include: 3rd & Goal, Rally for The Ranch, and Whitehall Chamber of Commerce. I enjoy bettering our community and believe that we exist to help others. I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions that you have.

Lee Maxey
Porsche Brand Specialist

I have been a Porsche Brand Specialist with Porsche Columbus since 2019. Growing up, I always had a strong passion for cars and motorcycles, as most kids do. After graduating High School, I moved out west and attended Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. From there, I went on to work in the motorcycle industry for 9 years before being given the opportunity to sell Porsches, and what a dream come true it has been! I have always loved Porsche for their strong racing heritage and staying committed to being the best of the best when it comes to luxury and performance. What I love most about my job is meeting awesome, new clients and seeing them showcase their passion for the brand. There is no better feeling than handing over the keys of a car to it's new owner and seeing the smile on their face.

I have been with Porsche Columbus since 2012 and am one of our Porsche Certified Brand Ambassadors. What I like most about this job is interacting with people who share the passion for everything that is Porsche; from the racing heritage to the future of the brand. The best thing about this dealership is that deep down we are all kids playing with toy cars. We all love Porsche just as much as our clients and its evident when they come and shop here at Porsche Columbus.

Two of my greatest joys in life, not including family of course, are cars and education. I grew up riding motocross at the tender age of 14 and after college, bought one of the first IROC Camaros in Central Ohio.

My love of education is evidenced by my background as a high school teacher. I taught Physical Science, Biology and Chemistry for 15 years. I approach sales from an educational perspective; people ask me, "So, you sell cars now huh?" and I always say "no, I just let people experience the cars, educate them and they sell themselves!

It's so rewarding working with the high quality clients who come to Porsche Columbus and I look forward to serving you!

Cars have been a passion of mine since I was able to hold a wrench. I grew up in Grove City, Ohio restoring classic cars with my grandfather, learning what made the wheels turn. This upbringing is what engrained honesty, integrity, and credibility into my DNA. I strive to deliver a world class customer experience to everyone I encounter. My family and I are avid outdoor enthusiast from kayaking, fishing, bow hunting, hiking or just about anything else that gets my wife, daughter and I outside. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle through beautiful backcountry of our current city Lancaster, Ohio. I have been in the automotive industry since 2011 starting as a tire technician at Discount Tire and working my way up to management, now representing Porsche and their world class products. It is such a pleasure working with Porsche, their product sells themselves, I am here to educate and assist you while delivering the best purchasing experience you have ever had.
