    General Manager

    Hire Date 10/12/2009 – Brent has been with CAG since 2009, and has been in the car business since he was a teenager, though he won’t say how long ago that is! He loves to point out, to anyone that will listen, that CAG is the best group to work for because we always focus on the two most important things; taking care of our customers and team members. He is a big UT fan and is consistently tormented by his three college students, who attend Texas State, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. When not working, he would hope to be at the beach with his wife Andrea, and also enjoys training and competing in triathlons.

    “To me, measuring a great customer experience is pretty straightforward. It means that we have delivered the client a buying and ownership experience in such a way that they come back to us for all of their future automotive needs, and enthusiastically refer their friends and family to do the same.”

I started assisting Subaru service customers in 2003 in El Paso, TX and now I’m happy to assist you at Austin Subaru.

I’ve been known to drag race Subies down the ¼ mile track! One of my favorite quotes is, “There are no traffic jams on the extra mile” -Zig Ziglar

    Hire Date 10/04/12 – Isaac was born in Greenbay, WI, and yes, he is a Packers fan and owner, as are his kids. He has lived in San Diego, Phoenix, Virginia, Philly, D.C., Delaware and Maryland. In the fall of 2004 he met the woman who would become his wife on a campaign trip to Beaumont, TX. After spending the summer of 2005 in Maryland, his wife could no longer stand to be away from the Great State of Texas. That fall, his family moved to her hometown of Beaumont with the intent of coming to Austin in a year for Isaac to pursue graduate studies at UT. Hurricane Rita upped that timetable and the family came to Austin in January 2006. Isaac found that, opposite of what he was told, public transportation here is pretty much non-existent, so he decided to look for work where the cars are. His family is everything to him and he feels blessed to have a wonderful wife, three beautiful children, two rescued dogs (Wubby and BO-C), three rescued cats (Piper, Odamae, and Scampi), and one rabbit who is black, but is named Gray Bunny. Isaac is the only non-native Texan in his family but did get here as soon as he could.

    Hire Date 9/16/2014 -Adam has lived in Austin, Texas since he was in the 4th grade moving here from Shreveport, Louisiana, where he was born. He says he has the most beautiful girlfriend in the world, Hannah, and considers himself very lucky to have her especially since he is not that great looking (maybe her eyesight is not that good). They love doing activities outside and just recently started Kayaking and would love advice on where to go for a real adventure. He has been fascinated with cars as long as he can remember. When not selling a Subaru he attends car shows, reads about cars, details cars and talks about cars. He would love to be a race car driver but since that hasn’t worked out he loves selling his favorite “real” automobile the Subaru. He enjoys sharing his passion for cars with his customers and believes if you can park your car and walk away without looking back to check it out, then you bought the wrong car!

    “To me, a great customer experience means the customers feel their business is valued, their time is respected, and we are here to help them not only find the right vehicle but also to personalize and protect that vehicle to their needs.”

    Graphic Designer

    Hire Date 8/16/2013 – Tabitha has an incredibly colorful past. She previously taught English in Japan before she found her true calling in alternative dance public performance art. Tabitha found her way to Austin only by chance after her struggles on the road left her traveling dance troupe stranded in south Austin. The Co-op group disbanded over monetary issues as the market at the time wasn’t ready for the wildly wicked moves of the underground dance revolution. Tabitha prevailed by becoming a vegan (something she claims gives her super powers) and focusing her vegan chi into clothing design with an emphasis on salon management. Tabitha quickly became a powerful downtown socialite in the early 2000’s, but she resigned from the lifestyle stating, “I’ve gotta quit the scene before the scene quits me.” Wise words. We’re happy that Tabitha decided to settle down as part of the Austin Subaru family. Tabitha’s favorite anecdote is the time she overdosed on vitamin B12 and pushed over a local vegan food truck in a flushed fit of nutritionally enhanced rage – Tabitha recalls their customer service was, “entirely and utterly tragic.” The owner of the truck is now out of business. He has made a full recovery with no plans to reopen citing, “fear of retribution.”
