Jamie Darvish, the Chief Operating Officer of DARCARS and the chairman of The Washington, D.C. Auto Show, was officially honored last week as one of the 49 TIME Dealers of the Year nominees. Darvish received his honor at a virtual awards ceremony that was held as part of the all-virtual 2021 NADA Show.
The TIME Dealer of the Year Award ceremony honors franchised new car dealers who have a strong track record of customer service at their dealerships and robust engagement in their local communities. DARCARS is one of the region’s largest dealership chains, and have long supported a range of charitable causes throughout the Washington area.
For example, Darvish received deserved attention in 2019 for paying off all outstanding student lunch debt in both the Prince George’s and Montgomery county public school systems – two of the largest school districts in Maryland.
Darvish has also been a longtime supporter of WANADA’s Automobile Dealer Education Institute, and currently serves on the program’s Board of Directors. He has also served on Montgomery County’s Automotive Trades Foundation board, which partners with ADEI to help prepare students for careers as auto repair and service technicians.
Darvish and DARCARS also support a number of other worthy causes in the region, including, but not limited to: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington; Wounded Warrior Project; Martha’s Table; Capital Pride Alliance; American Breast Cancer Foundation; and the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area.
