  • Mark Politte
    Dealer Principal

    After a few years working as an engineer, Mark Politte joined the automotive world in 1994 to work for Ford Motor Company. A dynamic career with Ford led Mark, and his wife Samantha, to many assignments and cities throughout the United States. In 2005, he fulfilled a childhood dream by purchasing Stanley Subaru.

    Mark and his wife Samantha are very proud as the owners of Stanley Subaru, but are even more proud of their three children. In 2004 they decided to make Down East Maine their home fulfilling their desire to put down roots, be active contributing members of a small community, and raise their family in a supportive and value based environment.

    Since purchasing Stanley Subaru, the dealership has received numerous awards and accolades including twice receiving Subaru's most prestigious "President's Award". Most recently Stanley Subaru was recognized as a Stellar Care dealer, an award bestowed on an elite few for exceptional customer (guests) relationships.

    Mark is particularly pleased that the dealership participates in many community events and in the last seven years has actively supported over 20 local charities through hours, financial support, goods, and services-work he says is critical to Stanley Subaru's long term success in this small community.
