Owner and President of Patriot Auto Group Patriot has four locations – the first store Patriot Subaru opened in Saco, Maine in 2003, and is the largest volume Subaru Retailer in New England for the and the largest volume auto dealership of any make in the entire state of Maine. The second store opened in 2014 and is also Patriot Subaru, this one is in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, the third store Patriot Nissan of Salem, NH opened in 2018 and the fourth Patriot Acura of Maine will open at year end 2023. His stores all started as add points.
The awards received at his dealerships number over 100. They include 15x Best Dealerships to Work For, Subaru’s Chairman Award, Subaru of New England President’s Award 17x , The Best Place to Work in Maine, Massachusetts, and NH, Nissan’s Award of Excellence, Maine’s Eco Business of the Year, and many more.
He attributes his success to a clear vision and livable mission statement that is present in each of their locations. That mission is two words, TO SERVE, the customer, the community, our families and each other. It is that simple mission that drives their performance.
Prior to opening his first store he spent 16+ years with the Florida based J.M. Family Enterprises. Taking wing in 2003, Adam built the Maine store from scratch, and brought the family up from Florida to Maine. Only problem – it was in November, just in time for winter! Who does that? !! But it would prove to be the right move. The Saco, Maine and North Attleboro store both are top 10 in sales, service, parts and customer satisfaction.
Adam resides in both Florida and New Hampshire, has two grown children, two grandchildren, 3 dogs and about 180 associates in the car dealerships. His interests are playing tennis, enjoying music and working in politics to impact the world – (either side – they are both right and wrong).
