Dyer has worked at the dealer since its earliest days in 2008, when former manager Steve Sandifar was working from the back of a 1997 Suburban. “I began by cleaning cars for him,” stated Dyer. “I have a great deal of respect and admiration for Steve, and hope to continue to expand the business from the wonderful foundation that he laid.” Dyer has been general manager since 2017. “We kept the Sandifar name while Steve continued to work here, but when he decided to move on, we decided that it was time to rebrand,” Dyer adds.
