Cynthia Brink, Marketing

Cynthia has been asked to assist with Texas Motor Works' marketing efforts.  Her automotive knowlege was gained through osmosis from growing up with a father who was always, shall we say, "passionate" about cars.  ("Girls, don't scratch the paint!")  She doesn't claim to be a Porsche expert, but she likes G-forces. She is internationally-minded and enjoys helping put TMW's best face forward. Please contact her with suggestions for improving this site!  cbrink@dcccd.edu.
