Patrick Larson
Sales Manager
(877) 722-4015 Ext.102

I have been in the auto industry for 12 years and consider Brewster Subaru my home away from home! I pride myself in working hard for our customers and really enjoy interacting with everyone that comes through our dealership doors on a daily basis. I value working for a family owned dealership and work closely with all dealer employees to ensure everyone gets the best customer experience possible.
 
I'm originally from Danbury, CT and I now reside in Southbury, CT with my wife and two young boys! We have two Maltese as well as a small school of fish and even a hamster. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and kids and participating in their activities such as soccer, baseball and Cub Scouts. My wife and I are avid sports fans and we root for the Yankees, New York Football Giants and UCONN Basketball. On Sunday's in the summertime, you can find me on the baseball diamond playing for the Brookfield Knights of the Northeast Baseball Association.

Rich Johnson
Business Manager
(888) 793-7791 Ext.103

Rich Johnson has been in the auto industry for over 33 years and with Subaru for over 10. 

He has been married for 14+ years to his lovely wife Donna. As a Connecticut resident, he knows his Subaru will get him through our tough winters. Also, as an avid dog lover, his favorite Subaru is the Forester because it has lots of room for his pets. Plus the dogs love that panoramic moonroof!

He loves working at Brewster Subaru and considers his co-workers part of his  family! It's that type of atmosphere that you feel when you walk into the showroom...friendly! His office is always open to customers for any questions or concerns. Just don't get him started on Sinatra, the Eagles (the band, not the team) or trains!

Robyn Rey
Sales Consultant
845.278.8300 ext.106

After a 15 year career of teaching English in the public schools of Long Island, I relocated to Sherman, Connecticut. Once my son Brandon reached school age, I began my second career as a Subaru Sales Consultant just over 3 quick years ago. When I'm not at the dealership, I love spending all my free time with my son - especially if it involves the beach, biking and simply cheering him on as he plays for his soccer league.
