  • Bear Dalton
    Marketing Director

    Throughout my life my family was always composed of avid auto enthusiasts.  My father was always working on a Classic Car, doing engine swaps and custom modifications for what seemed like a continual endeavor.

    Watching my father and listening to his enthusiasm about the cars and motors and racing, I was able to gain a great deal of knowledge about vehicles, how they operate and how to make the most with each one.

    For the greater part of the past decade I have dedicated my life to bringing dealerships to life through Digital and Traditional Marketing, as well as Business Development Center operations.

    At Secor Auto, we carry great brands with a passion for what they do which makes it easy to convey that passion to our customers through our online presence as well as in store. 

    Secor Volvo Cars and Secor Lotus carries such an amazing product that it speaks for itself.  It is awesome to be working with a Company that has such great potential and I look forward to helping grow our company and advance us into the future by selling great cars to great people. Please come in, I would love to meet you and welcome you to the Secor Family too.

It has great style and performs at superior levels. Volvo really does what it is supposed to do to keep you safe, protect you from harm, and be fun to drive.  Our customers love their cars and, seriously, everyone has a story to tell about a Volvo accident and how the car saved their life, that of a friend, sister, pet, etc.  There's even a web site where people share their stories and photos (  My daughter sent a text and picture she took on her way to school of a Volvo that was crushed in an accident but the driver walked away.  Thankfully she was in a Volvo, and I was grateful that my daughter was in one too!  I love conveying the core values of our cars because I want our customers to know what they stand for, what value, longevity and integrity mean when you buy a Volvo from Secor Volvo."  In her spare time Diane enjoys spending time with her family, going to her three kids' activities and sporting events with her husband, enjoying the pool, outdoor summer fun, gardening, and their new, 8 week old Golden Retriever puppy.  Stop by Secor Volvo soon to meet Diane and talk with her about a new or used Volvo.

  • Anthony Mitchell
    Sales and Leasing Consultant

    Growing up I spent a lot of time at the Waterford Speed bowl my family used to race stock cars there. 

    I gained a love for cars especially ones that went fast. My first two cars I owned were both Mustangs and I still love them to this day. 

    Now that I'm older and a proud father of two handsome boys, I get to start that same love for everything automotive with my sons by having such an amazing job. It's great when you can wake up every day and be around something you love and are passionate about.

    Helping people has always been very important to me and helping people find the perfect car for them is a great feeling. I hope to be able to find you the car that you fall in love with

  • Connor Beverly
    Sales and Leasing Consultant

    Though Connor has been selling Volvos for just over two years, he has admired them his whole life. Growing up riding in the rear-facing third row of Volvo station wagons, it only made sense to look for a Volvo for his first car. Eight years and many miles later, the classic and coveted Volvo XC70 still is his favorite. After valet driving in Portland, Maine during college, Connor has driven practically every car on the road today. With that, he believes nothing drives better than a Volvo. When it came time to find a job post-graduation, Volvo sales seemed like a great fit. Connor strives to make the new and pre-owned Volvo purchase process easy, informative and enjoyable for all of his customers. In his spare time, Connor enjoys playing golf, spending time with family and friends in both Connecticut and Maine and driving along the coast in his prized Saab convertible.
