Adam Anderson
Certified Product Specialist
(678) 475-3500

Adam has a huge passion for cars. Ever since he was a little kid, cars have been a big part of his life. His family could tell you stories of him being in a car seat and saying the names of all the cars as they drove by. Currently, he drives a Mustang, a Jeep, and very soon a Subaru will join his driveway!


Adam has been with Subaru of Gwinnett for 5 years now. He originally started out in our service department as a porter, where he learned to love the Subaru brand. After a year of learning the product and talking with our customers, he knew this was his home and pursued the opportunity to move into sales. He wakes up every day excited to get to work and share the Subaru experience with his customers.

As a new first-time homeowner, when not at work Adam enjoys decorating his house, spending time with friends, and a nice glass of Louis Martini wine.

Whether it's helping someone find that bigger car for their growing family, or seeing the pride in a young professional getting their very first car loan, or helping a mom or dad pick out their kid's first car to go to college in--- it feels great to know that he can help make someone's day and be a part of a major life milestone.

Georgia has always been home to Blake as he was born and raised in the Atlanta area. He has been happily married to his wife, Lindsey, for 5 years now and they have 4 children together--you could say that chaos runs their lives sometimes but they wouldn't have it any other way!
