Promote Your Business Fairfield County

Interview with Evan Perkins

By Sharon Arena –EVAN PERKINS
Dan Perkins Auto Group
If you live in Fairfield County,it is most likely that you have passed a vehicle bearing the names of either “Honda of Westport” or “Dan Perkins Subaru”, both part of the Dan Perkins Auto Group, which has been a part of the local community going back to 1981 and is a featured sponsor of Gold Coast Connect.

When I met Evan Perkins, President of the group, it was immediately apparent to me that,
despite its size, this was a family business at heart.

Curious, I asked him how it all began – “My father, Dan Perkins, started his career in the automobile business in 1958, operating various
franchises in South Africa,moving on to operating a chain of Nissan stores in England in 1978 and finally settling down in Connecticut in 1981. I joined my father upon graduating from college,gaining experience in all aspects of the industry,and was appointed President in 2011.”

When asked what the underlying business philosophy of the group was, Evan stated emphatically that everything starts with great customer service. “We continually focus on ensuring each customer has an exceptional buying experience and leaves satisfied, and we believe that is what sets us apart-our motto says it all – ‘peace of mind is part of the deal’!
