The writing was on the wall when Burton was young & asked for a car seat steering wheel. A self-admitted car-nut, he researched the auto business while in High School, but cars wouldn't be the only focus of his life. Raised in a faith-filled home, he was set to follow in his father's bi-vocational footsteps.
He began selling cars at 19 & in his early 20's moved his family to Hawaii. By 29, he was managing a dealership in Kona while assisting in a small Hawaiian church. Following the call to full-time pastoral ministry, he left the car business & with his wife, pastored Kona Faith Center before moving to Nevada. After six years of ministry here, he re-entered the auto business at Findlay Subaru and then helped open Subaru of Las Vegas in '06. In '07, Burton became General Manager & coordinated a move to brand new facilities in '09.
What some may deem an extreme contradiction: pastoral ministry & the car business, he considers the blending of two passions--his calling & career.
Jeff transitioned his love of cars into a career at Subaru of Las Vegas in 2013. As a fan of Subaru's racing heritage and quality products, it was a perfect fit to bring Jeff into the dealership. He started as a sales consultant, before moving into the Customer Service Department. His pet cat, Cat keeps him company at home while he works on cars in the garage or comes up with custom LEGO designs.
July, 2010, Ariel started working at Subaru of Las Vegas in the Detail Department. While helping to put a shine on each new Subaru that was sold, he was also working his way through school, to further his automotive career. In 2012, he graduated with an emphasis in Automotive Technologies and moved from the Detail Department, to the Service Department.
The balance and reliability of the Subaru Boxer engine, as well as the All-Wheel Drive system are his favorite features of the Subaru brand. Outside of work, Ariel enjoys playing soccer & basketball with friends, as well as FIFA World Cup on his Xbox 360. Keeping him company during his time at home are his two dogs, a Labrador and a Chihuahua
