  • Paul Garavel
    Owner / Dealer Principal
    (203) 642-0613

    Hire Date 4/1997

    Paul opened the doors of Subaru of Wilton in early 1997, eager to sell and service some Subarus! An expert in the needs of the Northeastern market, he already had over 20 years of automotive experience. In the spring of 2005 the dealership was moved to Norwalk and became Georgetown Subaru. In October of 2012 it became Garavel Subaru as we know it today.

    Diversified interests have always been his strength. While a student in college he was a member of the Connecticut General Assembly representing Danbury for ten years. Three years after his retirement from politics he purchased Georgetown Jeep in Wilton, CT, which grew to be Connecticut's largest Jeep dealer. In 2002 they expanded to Georgetown Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Norwalk, CT.

    He is active in the community and supports breast cancer research and fighting poverty.

    His passions in life include his work, ice cream, boating and his family. He is an avid Yankee fan and a Beatlemaniac.

    If you see Paul walking around the dealership please say hi! He loves striking up conversation with customers and will do everything in his power to make his customers happy.

    Paul also owns Garavel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, our sister store.

    (203) 642-0625

    Hire date: 7/2011

    Miles joined Garavel Subaru over two years ago. He loves selling cars he truly believes in.  Indeed, he is so enthusiastic, he has created a twitter page under the handle "subarumiles" and regularly chimes in about new deals, changes in models, car reviews and recently of course, the anticipated arrival of the new 2012 Impreza, the All Wheel Drive car with the best gas mileage in America.

    A graduate of Yale, Miles has many interests. He is a published writer, an exhibiting painter and a mediocre basketball player.  His previous work experience was mostly in sales and marketing-- real estate and social media.

    He is the father of three beautiful kids, a 22 year-old daughter currently studying in France, and 16 year-old twins, boy/girl.

    His passions in life include his work, University of Maryland basketball, reading and his family.

    If you see Miles around the dealership, you'll notice he always has a smile on his face.  Let him know what you think of his painting in the waiting room. He loves his customers and feels fulfilled when he can make them happy.
