Robert Hinkle

Robert found his home with Park Place in March of 2000 as a Pre-Owned Sales Consultant for 2.5 years with Park Place Motorcars Mid-Cities. Following a brief move to the Finance department, Robert became the Pre-owned Director for the next 5 years. He took over as the General Manager in 2007 and helped move the store to Grapevine in July of 2011. After being with Park Place Mercedes for almost 20 years, Robert took on a new adventure with the Park Place Lexus in Grapevine. 

Robert is very excited to be working with a team that has proven year after year to be at the top of their game.  The passion and pride he sees at Lexus Grapevine is unbelievable. 

Before his Park Place career began, Robert grew up in Arlington, Texas and graduated from Sam Houston High School. He went on to play two years of baseball at Eastfield College and finished college at the University of Texas at Arlington with a Finance/Accounting degree. He worked in the accounting field for a couple of years managing an Accounting department.  A career change led him to the car business and Robert sold cars for Don Davis from 1998-99. 

Personally, Robert has three awesome children - two boys and one girl.  He and his wife have been together for 28 years. In his spare time, he loves to watch his kids play sports. Robert also has a big heart for animals, as he currently has a couple of rescue dogs and one cat.
