Lawrence Christian - Bio
I’m originally from Queens, NY and relocated to Tampa in 1983. I fulfilled my childhood dream of community service from 1988 until 2002 . I briefly left my career to take care of my parents and in 2005 I got into the car business with Lakeland Ford and have been here ever since. I’m known in the community and I love the car business and have repeat customers that keep coming back.
Matthew Robinson - Bio
A local, I was born and raised in Valrico, FL just down the road from my new home in Lakeland. I have always enjoyed sales because to me it is about connecting a client with something that fulfills a need. Cars are a huge need and I feel that Lakeland Ford has the best solution with our Exclusive Nationwide Lifetime Warranty. When I’m not at work I can often be found reading a good book or playing the latest video games. I’m passionate about helping people not just once but for the lifetime of their car needs.
