GARY  RUBENSTEIN
GARY RUBENSTEIN
PRESIDENT

Gary has spent the last 40 years in the automotive industry. From a modest start wholesaling vehicles, to owning one of Nova Scotia’s premier used car dealerships, Gary has found ways to evolve and adapt with the changes in the industry. Starting with just a few pieces of inventory, Gary was able to build his operation from the ground up. With roots in wholesale, he built the foundations of his business on trust and relationships. When the wholesale business grew, he was able to acquire his first dealership. As that business grew in the early 1990’s, he made a name for himself exporting vehicles to most corners of the world. Eventually, he had three dealerships over two provinces and compressed them into one larger dealership in the used car mecca of Atlantic Canada, Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. He built his enterprise around the values of Pride, Quality, and Service which he still embodies today. Gary has spent the last 40 years in the automotive industry.

GENERAL MANAGER

Mike started washing cars and delivering parts at a Dodge dealership when he was 16 years old. He grew into a sales position after high school and slowly climbed his way up the ladder. He moved on to managing lease returns and spent two years as a subprime finance manager to cut his teeth for the business office. In time, he became the Business Manager and started to hone his skills to produce quality deals. He has enjoyed the growth opportunities at Harvard Auto and was proud to accept the General Manager position in February of 2017.
