Brent moved to Austin in 2000 from Amarillo, Texas. He says Amarillo was a great place to grow up, featuring wonderful people and beautiful landscape (as long as you like flat dirt and high winds). He grew up in the car business, which his family was involved in since he was a youngster. He has had many different jobs in a dealership at one time or another, from lot porter to dealer principal. The jury is still out as to whether he has mastered any of them! He is married to Andrea (married up into the trifecta of brains, beauty, and a great personality!), and their home is usually one step away from an asylum with the help of their three teenagers Evan, Caitlyn, and Julian along with their two boston terriers Melvin and Matilda. When not helping out the wonderful clientele of Austin Subaru, you will probably find Brent at the lake with the family or searching in the woods for his ball around one of the area golf courses.

“All-Wheel-Drive:” that should be Mr. Hardeman’s middle name due to his active lifestyle and admiration for his annual winter family vacations in Colorado. This avid outdoorsman and dog lover looks back with a chuckle on the day he acquired the Subaru brand. “We picked up the Subaru Regional fellas who had just flown in from Denver, and they could not help but laugh at the fact that nearly all of Austin had shut down due to one inch of snow on the ground.” As Southern Texans know, snow is a rarity here, but it just so happened to fall on that particular chilly day in January of 1996. Needless to say, the Subaru Regional Reps decided after this display that there was real potential and need here for the Subaru brand.
Mr. Hardeman is known around the dealership as an all-around nice guy and family man. His family includes his loving wife, Rebecca, and their three children, two of whom (Will and Genny) work at the dealerships taking on day-to-day management. Their youngest (by two and a half minutes), Joy, is attending Mr. Hardeman’s alma mater, UT, in her second year of law school. Mr. Hardeman boasts about how proud he is of the spread here at the Continental Automotive Group and how the average employee has worked for him an incredible 15+ years! “The car business is a people business, and having the right people be a part of our family here is the most important thing, and we have the right people!”

Geneva Anne Hardeman, one of the future radio voices of Austin Subaru, remembers spending winter vacations in Colorado, navigating the snowy mountain roads in her family’s Outback. Genny got her start in the Continental Automotive Group on February 17, 1984, just two and a half minutes before her sister Joy. Genny was a thespian and tennis star at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School before continuing on to SMU, where she graduated a semester early with a degree in Finance, Foreign Languages and Literature. Genny went to work for Tejas Securities in Austin but was soon recruited into the family business. Genny enjoys spending time with friends on Lake Austin and taking runs around the neighborhood with her two dogs, a Blue Lacy named Charlie and a yellow Labrador named Ellie. Ellie enjoys riding in the Subaru sport utility vehicles; her favorite is the Outback.
Will is an Austin recreationalist: an avid cyclist, triathlete, competitive skier, and outdoorsman who enjoys all the air, land, and water that Austin has to offer. These activities have made Will more in tune with local environmental issues, and in his construction and development focus at the Continental Automotive Group, Will brings with him a strong commitment to preserving Austin’s natural beauty. He is excited about the local expansion of the Subaru brand and thinks that it’s a perfect match for the people of Austin. Will grew up in west Austin and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin.
Joy, a sought-after companion, enjoys a good crossword puzzle and late evening walks on the Lions Municipal Golf Course with her two puppies, Ellie and Charlie. As one half of the team that joined the Continental Automotive Group on February 17, 1984, Joy has 25 years of automotive industry know-how. Those who miss Joy in work mode can check Facebook for the photographic chronicle “A Day in the Office- Kicking Butt and Taking Names.” Joy is currently in Washington DC driving a Subaru Outback.
