At Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk, we are lucky to have an amazing staff. Our employees are knowledgeable, friendly, and most of all, committed to creating the exceptional customer experience that is our mission. One such employee is Emilio Navarro, one of our Finance Managers at Honda Seekonk. He got into the car business right out of college, and has been part of the Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk team since April 2011.
Emilio is a dedicated family man, as well as an active member of his community, having served three terms on the City Council in Cranston, RI. His latest passion is health and fitness, and he trains regularly at Unleashed, a local gym. This year, he finished in a trio of tough races: the Reebok Spartan Sprint in Tuxedo, NY, the Tough Mudder in Vermont, and the Boston Spartan Super Run. He plans run the Spartan Ultra Beast in Killington, VT, this month, to complete his first Spartan Trifecta. “Goal setting is the key to success in everything–professionally and personally,” says Emilio, “and completing my first Spartan Trifecta is a big goal I set for myself this year.”
Competing in these events, Emilio has learned the importance of pushing yourself for individual excellence, but also working as a team. “When you do something like this, it changes your life. I train very hard for these races, but I’m part of a team, and we all work together to push each other, support each other, and perform well,” says Emilio. “It’s just like at work: accomplishing something as a team is meaningful, you become better people together. In fact, I’m hoping to get some of my work friends on my team for future races.”
The Tough Mudder allows competitors to participate on behalf of a cause, and Emilio chose the Wounded Warrior Project when he registered: “We don’t do enough for our military, and our veterans need our help. This was my own small way of contributing to that cause.” At this writing, Tough Mudder events have raised over $6 million in support of the Wounded Warrior Project.
Emilio sees these intense races as an opportunity to “achieve great goals, planting the seeds for change and positivity,” and we’re not at all surprised. He brings that same attitude of dedication, positivity, and teamwork to his job every day at Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk. And we’re very grateful for it!
