Welcome to Brewster Subaru!

I have been in the automobile industry for over 26 years and at Brewster Subaru for 17 years and counting. I am extremely proud of our sales and service teams and the warm and welcoming environment we have created.  Providing our customers with the very best car buying experience is something I am passionate about. I consider our loyal clients as family, and appreciate each and everyone who gives us the opportunity to serve them. I feel a deep connection to our community and am very committed to giving back from both a business and personal standpoint. 

I am the proud father of two teenagers, a daughter Isabella and a son Nelson, as well as a long haired Chihuahua named Rea. As a dog and animal lover I welcome all canine companions to our showroom, but be prepared, as I will play with them all day!

I speak fluent Portuguese, have a passion for martial arts, and also play in a soccer league. In my free time I enjoy golfing, cycling and hiking. My prized possession is a 2016 Harley Davidson Softail Heritage Classic motorcycle, which I ride every chance I get!  

I invite you to come in and meet me and my exceptional team. We look forward to showing you what sets us apart from other dealerships and has consecutively made us the #1 Dealer of the Year in New York State.

Sales Manager

I have been in the auto industry since April of 2005 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 reside in Southbury, CT with my wife and two young boys! We love pets and have 2 dogs and 2 ducks. I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids and participating in their activities such as soccer, baseball and taekwondo. My wife and I are avid sports fans and we root for the Yankees, New York Football Giants and UCONN Basketball.

In late winter/early spring, my hobby of producing 100% pure maple syrup takes up most of my free time! 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

I have been in the auto industry for over 36 years and with Subaru for over 13. 

I've been married for 19+ years to my wonderful wife Donna. As a Connecticut resident, I know my Subaru will get me through our tough winters. Also, as an avid dog lover, my favorite Subaru is the Forester because it has lots of room for my many pets. Plus the dogs love that panoramic moonroof!

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

My name is Antonio Assante, and I am very happy to be a sales and leasing consultant here at Brewster Subaru. It is a very friendly dealership with a great team of people.

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 10 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.

I moved up to the Ridgefield, Danbury area from the Bronx in 1991. I've been in the car business for over 33 years and actually started on my birthday on 8/8/1988. I have been selling Subaru's for the last 12 years. I like to go bowling, to concerts and sporting events. When you meet me, you'll understand why they call me "The Entertainer!"
