    We welcome back Kevin O'Donovan, Finance Manager, who is a 21+ year veteran of Secor Auto Center. Kevin has been involved with the sales side of Secor Volvo and Secor Saab more recently, having worked at the beginning of his career at Subaru dealerships. When asked what he likes most about his long and storied career, Kevin responds, "I love meeting nice people, hearing their stories, helping them fulfill their dreams and get what they want. Lots of customers are repeat customers. It's nice to see them come back and what is really exciting is when they come in to buy a car for their kids because there is that much trust in the product and the dealership." Kevin enjoys the fast-paced energy of the Secor dealership and giving our customers more of the kind of service they expect. Kevin, who is married and has three children, will be travelling to Scotland with his wife to visit their elder son who is working there for a Hartford insurance company on a multiple year stint that takes him as far afield as Dubai.

Another thing that Kevin appreciates are the stories told in Subaru ads, commenting "they are great ads. Who doesn't love them?!" We definitely agree with you there, and invite our Subaru customers in soon to meet and share their stories with Kevin.

  • Carlos R. Pineda
    Used Car Manager
    860-442-2323 ext.242

    Hello my name is Carlos. I am one of the Sales & Leasing professionals here at Secor Subaru. I am also the Pre-Owned Inventory manager. I have been employed here at Secor Subaru for over 10 years. I have been in the auto industry for over 15 years, and all of this time has been with Subaru. 

    My family and I live in Wakefield RI. I would have never guessed I would have become a "car salesman", and if it weren't for my Father in Law, who was a Sales Manager for a Subaru dealership, I would probably still be bar tending & waiting tables. He assured me that I had what it took to be an exceptional sales professional due to my customer service experience in the restaurant industry. He told me long ago "treat people how you would want to be treated", and I remind myself of that everyday. One of the things I pride myself on is the amount of repeat and referral business I receive on a monthly basis. This means I must be doing something right!!

  • Angelo Oddo
    Parts & Service Manager
    860-442-2323 ext.250

    Meet Angelo Oddo, the Secor Subaru Service & Parts Manager at our state-of-the-art, drive-through service center on historic Broad St., New London, right off routes 95 and 85. Angelo is a veteran of the car business having worked in the field for 42 years. Following a passion for all things automotive, Angelo is a second-generation car guy following in his father's footsteps who also began his career as a mechanic. Born and raised in Mystic, Angelo studied automotive trades in high school and began working in the field first as a mechanic before moving to managerial positions. When asked what it is he loves about what he is doing Angelo responds without hesitation, "It's the people…they're what it's all about. There are a lot of places that fix cars but not a lot that take care of and take an interest in their customers. After all, customers are giving over to you for care probably the 3rd most important thing in their lives, which is the key to their transportation needs, recreation, and family life." Angelo is the type of Service Manager you want on your team since he has worked both sides of the shop and understands every aspect involved that makes your experience successful at a first-rate dealership. In his spare time, Angelo enjoys fishing, hiking or going to the beach with his two grandchildren, whom he is raising in Norwich where they all live.

    In the great story category, Angelo credits owner and dealer principal, Charlie Secor with having saved his eyesight years ago, when Angelo was a teenager. They were trailering a car back to the dealership when the hitch broke loose and sent the car in tow into a ravine. When Angelo tried to disconnect the battery of the disabled car, battery acid exploded in his face temporarily blinding him. Charlie removed his shirt and put it over Angelo's eyes helping him into the other vehicle for the drive to the ER. As they were driving frantically to the hospital, Charlie spotted Mrs. Otto's farm and veered off the road into the farm. He ran to the front door of the farmhouse, knocked on her door, explained the situation and Mrs. Otto knew exactly what to do. Grabbing a bucket of fresh milk, she and Charlie poured the milk over Angelo's eyes. At that precise moment, Angelo could feel the acid falling away, washing away the excruciating pain with it. "It was his quick thinking that saved my eyesight… Charlie's like a brother to me." Come into Secor Subaru Service to witness Angelo's baby blues and talk to him about your important service needs.
