Brad Sellars

Brad Sellars | Porsche Certified Sales Manager

Brad has over 23 years in the automotive business and 11 of them are with Porsche. He started as a Technician and then progressed into different Parts and Service roles throughout the years. Now you’ll find him in vehicle sales. Brad is a graduate of the NSCC Automotive program and is currently enrolled in the Automotive Business School of Canada program. He is the third generation in his family that has worked in the Automotive Business and is a licensed technician and has factory training with Porsche as well as other European brands.

Brad grew up racing cars and began restoring them as a teenager. He began Road Racing locally and has raced at tracks in the USA. Brad’s other involvement at the tack is being a Certified Performance Driving Instructor with a number of clubs including the Porsche Club of America. He enjoys track days with his Cayman S and always has a project on the go in the garage or yard.

After Seeing a 2001 911 Turbo on the track at the Atlantic Motorsports Park for the first time, and the day Steele Auto Group announced it was opening a Porsche dealership, Brad knew that was where he wanted to be. He was a member of the team when the store opened in late 2005. Brad’s favorite Porsche is the 2011 911 GT3 RS 4.0 because it feels like the closest form of a 911 to true Porsche Cup racing car, and is an amazing car to get behind the wheel of.

Diana Toulany

Diana Toulany | Financial Services Manager

Diana started in the automotive industry 4 years ago. After a career in the financial sector she moved into the Auto Industry to focus on something that she was more passionate about. After graduating from Saint Mary’s University, she spent some time in Europe and the Middle East traveling and studying abroad. Although she has worked in both the financial and customer service sectors throughout her career it was her time working in her family’s business that taught her the importance of customer service and loyalty.

As a car enthusiast, working for Porsche of Halifax as a Financial Sales Manager Diana has been able to pursue this passion. Diana has won multiple challenges taking her on exciting driving experiences with Porsche Canada. Her passion was never more evident than when she had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 at Barber Motorsports Park and feel the breath taking moment when fear meets adrenaline and finally understanding what the true Porsche passion really is.
