  • Drew Crowley
    Porter

    Drew is our lot attendant here at Land Rover Bedford. Growing up in a family of Land Rover enthusiasts means he brings knowledge and passion for the brand to his position. His responsibilities vary from taking inventory photos for the website to keeping the shop and lot clean and organized. His work here serves as a great starting point to his goal for a job in the automotive industry.  When he is not helping out at the dealership, Drew is a student at the University of New Hampshire studying Communications.

    Favorite local meal: can't go wrong with Fish N Chips from Markey's Lobster at Hampton Beach. Fresh seafood right on New Hampshire's coastline is a favorite in the summer months.

    If you could live anywhere in the world: I would live in Moab Utah for its amazing red rock scenery and because it is home to some of the worlds greatest mountain biking, one of my main hobbies.

    Service Manager

    Anyone who spends any time around me knows I love to eat! Mexican or Indian is my food of choice. Chicken Street Tacos or Enchiladas Mole from El Tapatio in Merrimack, NH are some of my favorite meals. Fresh ingredients and great flavor!

    My favorite car to drive is the one that takes me where I want to go. I spend my free time rock climbing and exploring off-road in Land Rovers and Jeeps. I like the technical challenge of going places that seem improbable.

    My favorite athlete would be Tommy Caldwell. His dedication to rock climbing and his ability to accomplish incredible first ascents has always left an impression on me. I also appreciate his unassuming and approachable nature.

  • Nic Blaney
    Sales Staff
    (603) 792-9130

    Born and raised in northern NH, Nic is happiest when active in outdoor recreation. His favorite activities are anything with the word 'board' or 'motor' in its name. These things are only made better when shared with his family. Nic's favorite place on earth is Tuckerman Ravine. He enjoyed a special day at Tuck's this spring when his sons skied it with him for their first time. Nic is a graduate of UNH Durham and its location reinforced his love of the ocean. Chasing waves and twisty motorcycle roads Nic moved to Santa Cruz, CA for a time. Before arriving at Land Rover Bedford in 2016, Nic sold BMW and Triumph Motorcycles for a decade. This made for an easy transition to Land Rover with his appreciation for unique European vehicles of both the 2 and 4 wheel variety. 


    Nic's favorite pet is 'Flip' his 3-year-old Boston Terrier. She is always up for anything and packs a big dog personality in a small package. Many years Nic and his wife went on a trip to Mexico with a friend that brought her Boston Terrier. They fell in love with 'Bean', the original Boston Terrier, and have had two of our own since. 

    Nic's favorite road (ribbon of asphalt) is Hurricane Mountain Road that runs from Intervale, NH over the mountain range toward Fryeburg, Maine. To this day his favorite motorcycle to ride over it was his trusty BMW R1200GS.

    My favorite meal to get in New Hampshire is the Chori-Pollo from Puerto Vallarta in Manchester. The way they make their salsa is the absolute best. Spicy, sweet, amazing. They also have the best Jamaican margaritas in the entire world. A grand claim I know, but I encourage you to swing on by and confirm !! 


    My favorite pets are my two Yorkies, Gizmo and Gabby. Gizmo is a 10-year-old male. He is mostly brown, with white and grey mixed in, and he loves Kong treats. Gabby is a 3-year-old female. She is also brown white and grey. My wife rescued her about a year and a half year ago. She came to New Hampshire from Houston Texas. She is the smartest dog...and loves to snuggle. 

    The best iced cream in New Hampshire is, without a doubt, the Puritan Back Room. They are known for their mudslides, but their strawberry shortcake is the bomb !

  • Nicholas Porriello
    Sales Guide
    (603) 490-3306

    Nicholas is the guy the other salespeople ask when they have questions about all the tech in the vehicles. If he can't figure it out he will keep digging until he has the answer. He loves all the emerging technology and firmly believes the world is a better place for it.

    Favorite Activity: When Nicholas isn't at the dealership he could be found either riding his bicycle somewhere in Southern NH or perhaps on a local golf course.

    If he could live anywhere in the world it would be right here in New England so he can continue to enjoy the 4 seasons. Although he would prefer to be on the coast somewhere.
