Hello, I’m Andrew Weinberg, Service Manager for Mercedes-Benz of Easton. I’m from Long Island, New York. I grew up surrounded by the auto industry and am familiar with both the retail and wholesale sides of the business. Although I miss living close to the best city in the world, journeying to Columbus in 2013 to pursue my education at The Ohio State University was arguably the best decision of my life. I graduated from OSU in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I majored in Operations Management. I’ve been actively working in the industry since 2011, and just recently transitioned to Germain in November 2018. To provide quality care to our guests, we need to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience by communicating fully and allowing for an informed decision. In my free time, I enjoy watching and playing hockey, Buckeye game days, taking my husky to the dog park, and simply hanging with friends.
