  • Paul Garavel
    President / Owner
    (203) 845-8040

    Hire date 3/2002

    Paul moved to Norwalk almost 10 years ago - making this store his second Jeep store in CT. In the car business from a young age, he already had over 20 years of automotive experience. In October of 2012 he changed the name from Georgetown Chrysler Jeep Dodge to Garavel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.

    Diversified interests have always been his strength. While a student in college he was a member of the Connecticut General Assembly representing Danbury for ten years. Three years after his retirement from politics he purchased Georgetown Jeep in Wilton, CT, which grew to be Connecticut's largest Jeep dealer. Additionally he opened a tiny Subaru store a few miles south of Georgetown Jeep, which eventually became our sister store, Garavel Subaru, also in Norwalk, CT.

    He is active in the community, supports breast cancer research and fighting poverty.

    His passions in life include his work, ice cream, boating and his family. He is an avid Yankee fan, Giants fan and a Beatlemaniac.

    If you see Paul walking around the dealership please say hi! He loves striking up conversation with customers and will do everything in his power to make his customers happy.

    Paul also owns Garavel Subaru our sister store.

  • Mimi
    Official Mas-Dog
    Phone: None (Can't talk, only WOOFs)

    Hire date: 2/2012

    Mimi is the official dog of Garavel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.

    After being out on maternity leave, Mimi is now back as a part-time pooch. Two or three times a week she makes her rounds to say hi and lick the hands of her favorite employees.

    Though she is wearing glasses in this picture, Mimi has great vision. Okay, she can't see red and green but she can see enough to play fetch!

    Because Mimi lacks opposable thumbs, her Daddy, Paul, has refused to get her a smart phone =(. But she still checks her email once a month so feel free to send her an email!

    Greetings!

     

    With a passion and hobby for working on cars all my adult life with family and friends, from fixing, building and racing them, as well as entering the automotive industry in 2010, I definitely bring my love for cars along with an enthusiastic customer service attitude day in and day out.  If I'm not stocking up on deliveries, or helping customers, you will find me researching everything to do about cars, including parts, accessories, repairs, etc. 

    Since I've started working for Garavel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, they have helped me advance with my career in cars. My employment here began as a Detailer and was advanced to Lot Manager and recently was promoted to a Parts Counterman.  It's has been a great life opportunity and open door for my future.  

     

    It's a never ending battle of making your cars better and also trying to be better yourself.

    -Dale Earnhardt
