I have been in the car business for 10 years, with multiple brand experiences. I joined the Jim Burke family in July 2019, in our Subaru store, where I currently serve as the Finance Manager!

Of all of our salespeople, Sam has spent the most time at Jim Burke. He has over twenty years with us since starting in the late 1960s. In that time, Sam has been a used car manager, sales manager, and fleet manager, so he definitely knows his way around the business. His entire working life has been in the automotive industry, but when he finds free time, he enjoys cooking and riding motorcycles.

I am James Claborn. I joined Jim Burke in 2019, and quickly became the top salesperson. In the month of February, I was our "Rainmaker", which is the salesperson with the most sales overall. I started out as a waiter in the restaurant business, and I then went on to own two of our local Big Bad Breakfast locations. In my pass time, I enjoy riding my motorcycle. Come see us, you won't regret it!

I started started working with Jim Burke in March 2019, and I have been in the car business for 4 years. My hobbies include being at the and hanging out with friends. Come see us here at Subaru.

I have worked with Jim Burke for 3 and a half years, and I've been in the car business for 3 and a half years. My hobbies include fishing and spending time with my seven kids, two boys and five girls.

Originally hailing from Kenner, Louisiana, Bobby has worked for Jim Burke Automotive since 1974. He is a jack of all trades around here. You name it, he can do it. Spending his whole working life in this business, he has previously been a lot manager, worked in detail as well as tires and accessories. When he's not at work, he is training and showing English bulldogs, or spending time with his beautiful wife Stephanie and step-son Phillip.

Joe has been working here at Jim Burke in the parts department for over nineteen years, ever since high school! If you need a Subaru part, he's the person to see. He grew up in Hialeah, Florida, and in his spare time, enjoys church activities, playing golf, making woodcraft projects, and working on his house.
