  • Steven Hill
    General Manager

    I have been a part of the automobile industry for over 33 years and General Manager of Germain Honda for the past 3 years. 

    Before coming to Germain Honda, I was the PreOwned Department Manager at Germain BMW of Naples for 8 years. I was fortunate to earn BMW's "Profiles in Achievement Platinum Award" multiple times. Winners are selected nationally by key performance metrics including sales performance, and the ability to deliver outstanding customer satisfaction.  Prior to working for the Germain family, I was employed by the same dealer group for over 22 years.

    What I enjoy most about my present position at Germain Honda of Naples are the people I work for and with, and their pledge to be the best in the automobile industry. I am impressed by the dedication and commitment of our entire staff to deliver an outstanding customer experience, and excellent value in the products and services we provide. 

    When I am not working, I enjoy the beach, travel, mountain biking and spending time with my family. I presently live in the Naples area, and have a wonderful wife and 3 children, ages 11, 15 and 22.

  • Brad Newsome
    General Sales Manager

    My name is Brad Newsome and I am from Northeast Ohio. I have lived in Naples for over 15 years.  I grew up in a blue-collar, working class family.  So, I have a great appreciation for those who work hard for their money. I work hard every day to provide for my wife and two children, and enjoy spending my free time with my family.  I am proud to say that I am loyal Cleveland Sports fan (yes - the Browns included) and a big time Ohio State Football fan!  No jokes please.

    I have been working with and for the Germain Family for 15 years now!  I started back in 2001 here at Germain Honda Used Cars working my way up from Salesperson to the Used Car Director.  I was then given the opportunity to manage the New & Used Car Sales Department at the old Germain Acura dealership where I helped lead the Team to win the Acura Precision Team Award.  In 2008, I was promoted to be the General Sales Manager for our local Germain Toyota store where I over saw the daily Sales Operations and coached our Team to winning several coveted awards such as Toyota Sales Excellence Award, Toyota Board of Governors Award, the Toyota President's Award, and we enjoyed some of the Highest ratings in Customer Satisfaction.  While at Germain Toyota I also held the position of Compliance Officer which ensures that ALL of our Customer's private and personal information was handled in a strict and protective manner. 

    Now, I'm back to the place where it all began for me in the Automotive industry - Germain Honda of Naples.  I take customer satisfaction seriously and personally.  Good communication is the key to most good experiences. 

    I promise to deliver a great buying experience at our Dealership - We will provide you with all of the information you need to make the best decision, and we will communicate as clearly and as detailed as we possibly can.  You will get the answers to all of your questions in a factual and positive manner.  I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!

  • Chip Nadeau
    Client Advisor

    Hi there, Chip Nadeau here.

    After shivering in Minneapolis, Minnesota for 53 years, my family officially escaped to full time residence in sunny Naples 7 years ago. (My fingers are still suffering from frost bite)

    As an account executive and production supervisor on the creative side for several fortune 500 companies including Target, General Mills, 3M, Carlson Companies and many others, I learned to listen intently and identify my customers wants and needs and create a plan of action.

    Ironically, I have learned this process also works perfectly for my customers who are looking for new transportation.

    As a client of mine, you can be assured your wants and needs will be identified and you will be respected during your buying experience.

    Ok, now let the fun begin! Lets find the right vehicle for you.

I joined "Germain" in the summer of 2010. At "Germain Honda" I have learned the true meaning of "Excellence"! Not only in the brand "Honda", but also in all the departments within "Germain Honda". My customers are like an extended family. 

    I moved to Naples in 2010 to assist my mother who now is 92 years "young". Naples is my new home and "Germain Honda" is like a second home to me.
