JLRAH Grand O ribbonm cutAFTER WELCOMING ATTENDEES, THANKING SEVERAL PEOPLE AND CUTTING A SYMBOLIC RIBBON WITH HER FAMILY, Liz Rusnak Arizmendi was visibly excited to utter four words to christen the grand opening of Jaguar Land Rover Anaheim Hills on May 7.

“Welcome to the jungle,” she said.

No, she wasn’t about to sing the popular rock anthem. However, her maiden name, as in the renowned Rusnak Auto Group, is just as iconic when it comes to the automobile industry.

Arizmendi was talking about the decorative jungle theme chosen for the grand opening of the new state-of-the-art facility.

Along the way, he would talk to Dietrich about the trees and clouds … and cars.

“There goes a Volvo – that’s made in Sweden,” Donald Seney would tell his young son. “And there goes a Volkswagen – that’s made in Germany.”

“I was amazed — he picked it up in nothing flat,” Donald recalls. “Within weeks, he was naming cars on his own. I remember sitting on our porch as a Volvo passed by. He turned and said, ‘That’s a Volvo, it’s made in Sweden.’

“He was just three years old.”

After just one year under the Rusnak Auto Group umbrella, Jaguar Land Rover Anaheim Hills has become one of the top-ranked dealers for Land Rover sales in the Southern California market.

ALL IT TOOK WAS ONE YEAR.

No one could have – or would have – predicted it. It was too far-fetched.

Yet one person did — Paul Rusnak.

Both visionary and patient, Mr. Rusnak has an uncanny sense of opportunity and converting it into success. Just one year after The Rusnak Auto Group took over Jaguar Land Rover Anaheim Hills, the dealership has become one of the top sellers of Land Rovers in its market, which includes Southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico.
