  • Mark Politte
    Dealer Principal
    207-667-4641

    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.

    Mark has helped create an Employee Wellness Program  here at Stanley Subaru which includes programs from the Wellness Council of America, like our recent Every Body/Every Day Wellness Challenge.

    Communications Coordinator
    207-667-4641

    Born and raised in central Arizona, Spencer could not be happier to live in Ellsworth where summer activities include hiking, cycling, and kayaking rather than hiding indoors away as far away from the sun as possible. He frequently thanks his Mainer wife Patti for bringing him Downeast.

     

    He is less grateful about the marathon she tricked him into running in 2012. They now run a few miles a few times a week. It is much more pleasant. It is only recently he realized this may have been her plan all along.

     

    In addition to the outdoor excursions, Spencer draws and writes and gets excited about science news. He has a pair of degrees in the arts and a background in teaching. He's taught everything from life drawing to math to dog obedience.

     

    Spencer is excited to use his enthusiasm for sharing information as Stanley Subaru's Communications Coordinator. He is also excited about Stanley Subaru's community commitment and its support of local arts organizations.
