Tim Hare is the co-founder (along with his brother David) of Harbro Sales & Service, Inc. Together, in 1973, Tim and Dave began Harbro on Linwood Avenue in Whitinsville in a small, sometimes crowded service station.
At the beginning, Harbro provided mostly just expert automotive repair services. Tim was a highly-trained auto technician, and Dave was a self-taught automotive diagnostician and clever all around problem solver.
Together, Dave and Tim earned the trust and the dedication of what would amount to a very large following of repeat customers from miles around and from all walks of life. Folks knew their cars would be given nothing but 'tender-loving-care' at Harbro!
Not too long after they started Harbro, they began to see a need and an opportunity to grow Harbro's presence and impact on the community and the automotive industry at large; by selling top-quality, industry-exclusive guaranteed used vehicles to a market that was more than ready for the positive changes Harbro Sales & Service, Inc. was offering; and the rest, as they say, is history!
Mike Hare has been working at Harbro for as long as he can remember. He was photographed by the Telegram & Gazette at age 11 washing the front lot, a photo that proudly hung in Tim Hare's office for years.
Mike sold his first car at age 15, and after managing Depend-A-Car Rentals for much of the late 1990's, Mike took over as branch manager of Harbro Webster. Mike graduated with a business degree from Worcester State College. Mike is certified by the NADA School for Dealers, and along with his father Tim he graduated from Northwood Univeristy's CMD program, becoming the 1st Certified Master Dealers in New England.
In early 2009, Mike moved to Harbro Whitinsville as Sales Manager, and continues to oversee all sales operations and personnel.
Mike lives on a small farm in Sutton with his wife, 3 sons, and several animals.
