    My name is Chris Brown and I'd like to personally welcome you to Subaru of Puyallup. As an active owner of Subaru of Puyallup it has been my goal to create an environment for our customers and employees that is like no other store. When we say "Stress Free" it's not just a tag line. It's our goal to provide you with the best and most "Stress Free" vehicle purchase of your life. Furthermore, I want you to feel that same experience each time you come back to have your vehicle serviced. I am happily married and the father of three wonderful children. The majority of my free time is spent supporting their various activities and interests. From driving to coaching to cleaning dirty cleats my family life has kept me busy.

    I have been in the auto industry for 20 years now. I've worked in every position in the dealership and I now have the opportunity to share my experience in my own store. Thank you and welcome to Subaru of Puyallup, your Stress Free Dealership.

    I grew up in Hawaii and lived there for 30 years. I've been in the car business for 35 years and have been married the same amount of time to my beautiful wife Cheryl. We have 2 grown children.  Tawny and her husband Christopher travel the world blogging and producing travel videos. They have a 3-month old son, Holden Brave.  Our son Cody lives in Maine and works at the Portsmouth naval shipyard.  I enjoy hiking, especially the Grand Canyon, and doing anything outdoors. One of my favorite things at Subaru of Puyallup is the fun working environment.  I like to bring in "odd" foods from Hawaii for everyone to try and to watch their reactions...priceless!

    I have worked for Harnish Auto Family for 24 years now.  I was born and raised in Puyallup and still live in this great town. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Sabrina for 34 years. We have a 20 year old son (he is a mini version of me).  Just one of my many hobbies is gardening. I enjoy anything and everything in my backyard and often bring in fresh veggies from my garden for everyone to enjoy.

    I have had a love for cars my whole life. My mom will say I started naming car makes/models at 2 years old.

    Just one of the many great things about my job is the friendships I have developed with my customers throughout the years I have been here. It's really fun to have 2nd and 3rd generations come back for their first cars.

    I was born and raised in Pierce County and have been with the Harnish Auto Family since 2010.  As an aspiring professional golfer I quickly realized that any roots I could plant would be very shallow.  That was when I made the decision to come to Subaru of Puyallup.  Since then, my wife Jessie and I have had 2 beautiful children Graham (7) and Claire (5).  We enjoy everything outdoors; hunting, fishing, hiking and camping to name a few.

    I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I graduated from Puyallup Highschool in 2008 and attended Pierce College afterwards with a focus in Business and Accounting. I began working at Subaru in 2012 as a technician and made the switch in 2015 to a Team Service Manager.

                    I am passionate about the automotive world, having built my Outback XT and Neon SRT4 from the ground up with performance and functionality in mind. These and other ventures with friend's vehicles have given me a good understanding of turbo systems and components effects on the system as a whole. I feel that my background as an automotive technician and firsthand experience of engine and turbo systems assists me in answering any technical questions. Helping me further assist in bridging the gap between the technician and the customer.

                    Regardless of what brings you into Subaru of Puyallup, I'm always happy to talk cars with people or chat about anything and everything. Come by service and say Hi.

    I was born in New Mexico and Raised in California.

    I came to Tacoma in the 60"s and have  been here ever since- Love it here!  Would never go back to California except to visit.

    Have been in "dealership" accounting most of my working life, except for one small stint with the IRS.

    I find it an exciting environment with high energy co-workers.

    My hobbies are shopping, eating out,  gardening and getting together with family.

    I used to collect antique dishes, but I ran out of room and don't do that anymore.

    I love working, so maybe you can count that as a hobby with benefits!
