Castle's Employees of the Month
Castle Subaru/Imports | Sales Manager
David found a home at the Castle Automotive Team in June 2009, starting as a Sales Consultant at Castle Buick Pontiac GMC. After 4 years, he was promoted to Sales Manager, making the move over to Castle Chevy in Villa Park! In January 2017, “Happy Land” was calling his name, and he transferred over to Subaru/Imports in Portage, becoming the Sales Manager there!
David’s career in the automotive industry started in 2007 when a friend of his suggested that he should get into the industry himself. As a self-proclamed Car Guy, he decided to give it a try. The rest is history.
Outside of work, David enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons. He also likes being active and taking part in anything fitness related. And his favorite car? He says, “There are way too many choices to choose just one, but I really like ’70s Japanese cars.” Big thanks to David for his continued dedication and hard work for the Castle Automotive Group!
“David Eisin is without a doubt the prime example of a loyal Castle asset and what we value as leadership. He brings a professional, hardworking attitude with him every single day and I look forward to helping him continue to grow his career in our organization. Thanks again David for all you do and setting an example for others to learn from.” — Joe Castle, CEO

Castle Subaru | Re-delivery Specialist — Subaru Love-Encore Program
In addition to doing CSI follow up for all of the new customers, Jay sets up redeliveries with new Subaru customers to ensure they are completely up to speed with all the technology of their new Subaru. On busy days Jay will also introduce herself at the initial point of sale and help customers will the initial delivery process when she is needed.
Since Jay has moved up from sales to redelivery, Castle Subaru’s CSI has gone up considerably. Check out the review from one of the many satisfied customers, explaining how Jay went above and beyond for them during their 5th purchase from Castle Subaru…
(5-star review) 5/23/2019 “Their new Love-Encore Delivery Program with Jay is exceptional! I’ve been hoping they would have something like this for new car owners and this is it! With all of the new electronics onboard, you need some time to get used to them and you still can’t remember everything that was pointed out when we took delivery of the car. She spent over an hour with me, then drove to my home to help me set up CarPlay and the WiFi connection. That’s what I call service! Above and beyond what is expected. Thank you, Jay! Keep it up Subaru. Everyone at Castle Subaru is super friendly and helpful. It’s a great team.” — Laura Hess
