  • Eric Kahn , Dealer Principal

    Hello, my name is Eric Kahn, and I am the Owner and President of Friendly Honda. I have worked in the automotive retail industry for more than twenty years.

    I acquired Friendly Honda in late 2007, and I am proud to share that we are the highest volume dealership of any brand in the Hudson Valley (including Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Ulster Counties) and one of the highest volume Honda dealerships in the northeast.  Friendly Honda has earned the President's Award, Honda's highest honor, for the past six consecutive years, and in 2012 was the ONLY dealer in New York State to receive the honor.

    The Friendly team is comprised by a group of hardworking and talented individuals, and I often receive praise on their behalf.  I am proud to have such a great group of people working here.

    I am married and I have two children.

  • Dominick Di Capua , Vice President

    My name is Dominick and I am the Vice President of the Friendly Auto Group. I've lived locally my entire life, graduating from Marist College. I have two children and a wonderful pug named Bella.


    I've worked in the automobile business over 26 years, 24 of those years here at my second home, Friendly Honda. Working at the dealership has given me the opportunity to make hundreds of friends.  

    When I am not working, I enjoy reading, writing and arithmetic. I dislike cigarette smoke and horrible tomato sauce.

    Stop by and test-drive a Honda, or just say hi!

  • Michael Glynn , General Sales Manager
    845-454-2400 ext. 246

    My Name is Michael and I am the General Sales Manager at Friendly Honda. I grew up in England, the youngest of five children raised by Irish parents with a healthy respect for Irish traditions. I left England to back pack America and sample life; little did I know it would lead to a life in the Auto Industry!

    I have two sons, Liam and Oliver, whom bring me much happiness even when they play Football (American that is). I prefer to play the English version myself and still do when the opportunity arises with the local team in Croton-On Hudson next to where I live in Peekskill, NY.

    I have been with Friendly Honda since 2008 after spending 15 years with a CJD franchise. A long drive to work is all the easier knowing that when I get to work, I will not only be around friends but with people who truly care about what they do, and the people they serve, the customer.

    Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, back yard barbecues and I am a big NY Giants fan. I am also very much a dog person. If you stop by Friendly, please say hello!

I started out cleaning cars and delivering Honda parts down in southern Westchester.  I transitioned in to selling cars on the weekend and quickly earned my spot on the sales floor as a Salesman. From there I made my way to Internet Manager and finally Finance Manager.


    When I'm not working I try to spend as much time as I can with my family and my John Deere.


    Come down to Friendly Honda and ask for me and I will help in any way I can.

  • Michael Grazioso , Sales Consultant
    845-454-2400

    My name is Michael Grazioso, I am a Sales Consultant here at Friendly Honda. I have lived in the area since 1998. I worked in a number of fields before making auto sales my profession. 

    I came to the area to help a local church develop a dynamic children's program. After two years of working at the church, I passed by Friendly Honda and said to myself, "selling Hondas could be a great opportunity for me". In October of 2001 I began selling Hondas ( at a different dealership). In 2009 I met my beautiful wife. We were married in June of 2010 and had our daughter Isabella in July 2011. We moved to Millbrook this past August. After commuting an hour to work each day, I took a chance that Friendly Honda would let me join their awesome team of sales professionals. Five days later, I became a part of that team. 

    It's funny how life can be a circle of events. When I first moved into the area, I supplemented my income by cleaning offices in the evening hours. Friendly Honda was one of the offices I would clean. Life can be humorous when you look at it with bright eyes.

The Friendly family welcomed me with open arms, and this is my home away from home. I know that buying a car is a big decision: therefore, I strive to make each customers' experience fun, informative, and as stress-free as possible. I look forward to meeting and working with you in the near future.

  • Laura Sterling , Sales Consultant
    (845) 454-2400 ext. 168

    My name is Laura and I'm in Used Car Sales here at Friendly Honda. I grew up in Stormville, NY before venturing out to California for college where I graduated from USC in 2002. I have been working in the automobile business for the last six months and I truly enjoy it. There is something very rewarding about finding someone the car that they have dreamed of and watch them drive off the lot in it.

    Prior to my job here, I worked in the Financial Aid office at Marist College. Financing a college education or purchasing a car can both be overwhelming but, if you work with someone who genuinely cares about what's in your best interest, the process can be a whole lot smoother than what you would expect.  

    When I'm not working I enjoy watching and playing all sports and spending time with my family, especially my beloved cat Ringo. I dislike bad attitudes, as I am a very positive person.  

    I'm a Sales Consultant here at Friendly Honda. I hope to see you at the dealership sometime soon!
