Hans Kraml

Hans Kraml | General Manager

A native of Austria, the original home of Porsche, Hans was introduced to the Porsche brand at an early age.  He still remembers the exhilaration of his first-ever ride in a Porsche 911 Turbo and the feeling of euphoria as he was drawn back in the seat.  For the past 17 years, Hans has enjoyed sharing his love of the auto industry with the many wonderful people he meets every day, helping them to discover their passion for just the right car.  Hans is proud to be a member of the Porsche Bellevue family.

When not leading the amazing team at Porsche Bellevue, Hans enjoys a steep, winding road leading to the tranquility of a mountain trail or lake.  He and his wife, Dianna, have been married for 21 years and keep busy with their teenage son, Jacob, and 4-year-old Puggle named Wilson.

Eric  Lee

Eric Lee | New Car Manager

Eric brings over 26 years of Porsche Passion to Porsche Bellevue. He concentrates on providing the Porsche Experience and guiding every customer on their Porsche journey.  His first Porsche fascination came when he heard  the unique sound of a new Porsche 911 driving away from  his  high school graduation.

His fascination and passion finally came together in 1990 at Bellevue Porsche.  The dealership was later acquired by Jimmy Barrier and became Barrier Porsche.  In the beginning Barrier Porsche was not big enough to have a standalone store so Eric was also involved as a Sales manager for the  Audi, Jaguar, Lotus, Bentley, Rolls Royce and Lamborghini franchises in addition to Porsche.   These experiences helped shape Eric’s customer service skills and as Porsche expanded into its own facility. Eric was finally allowed to focus just on Porsche. When Eric is not driving the sales department,  he keeps busy with his wife and son and two Chihuahua’s  Moto and Paco.
