Meet the newest members of the Nissan Guam Family!

Cody Reyes – Parts Department

Kia Kaha is a Maori phrase meaning “forever strong”, which is how Cody Reyes, the newest addition to our Parts Department, always tries lives his life.

Cody brings his experience to Nissan as a Parts Warehouse Personnel. It’s the perfect position for a car aficionado, and Cody definitely fits the bill — his favorite Nissan is a 1992 Skyline!

He is always striving to surpass his limitations and push beyond his capabilities to reach his goal. When he’s not at Nissan, you can usually find him cruising the island or at 671 Top Notch Auto.

Reginald Valencia – Nissan Rent a Car

Reginald “Reg” Valencia has come on board as a Customer Service Rep for Nissan Rent A Car Guam at our Airport location.  We’re excited to have his “if you never try, you’ll never know” positive attitude on the team!

He’s a proud Air Force Dad, and when he’s not assisting Nissan Rent A Car customers, you can find him spending time with his girlfriend and two dogs (a Corgi, Enzo, and an American Bully named Klaus), or at the shooting range.

Welcome to the team, Cody and Reg!  We’re excited to have you on board!
