Leslie Williams

Our General Sales Manager, Leslie Williams, is originally from Chattanooga, TN. She joined Galleria BMW for its grand opening in May of 2017!

I believe the combination of performance and luxury a BMW provides is truly unique, but owning a BMW is more than driving and experiencing The Ultimate Driving Machine. It is inspiring to work with associates who genuinely care about your experience, purchase and service after the sale." Leslie's inspiration comes from growing people around her and from her family.
