At Ruge's Subaru, our team is what sets us apart from other car dealerships around Poughkeepsie, and they'll be the first ones to tell you that! "It makes work so much easier knowing you can rely on the people around you," said Chris Peterson of our sales team when we talked with him for our employee spotlight. Chris knows all about relying on those around him because he served four years of active duty in the Marine Corps and was on reserve until April of this year. Keep reading to learn more about Chris and what he loves about Ruge's Subaru!

How Does Our Team Show the Community Spirit of Our Subaru Dealership?

Chris has been around the Hudson Valley for most of his life as he attended Our Lady of Lourdes High School and graduated from Marist College in 2016. Of course, his time in the military brought him to many far-off locations, but he always knew he'd return to the area. Like many of our customers, Chris loves the outdoors and all that there is to do during any season, and that similarity is what helps Chris and other members of our sales team help you choose the right Subaru from our inventory. What's Chris's favorite Subaru model? "The 2020 Outback Onyx Edition XT," he said, "so much so that I ordered one for myself"!
