Chris Dagesse

Owner / President

My career in the automotive industry began working as a lot attendant for my father’s dealership in NH. The dealership was like a second home for me, I would watch my father and I had gained a fundamental understanding of and appreciation for the nuts and bolts of owning and operating a successful car dealership. After some time and when I gained enough experience, I grew into a variety of different dealership positions across all departments including car sales, management, service, parts, collision, and eventually learned and worked my way to become the part-owner and General Manager at Lewes Auto Mall Chevrolet Buick GMC, and then at Nucar Chevrolet Mazda. Ten years later, we had acquired the Boch-branded stores, and I had transitioned to owner and President for the DCD Automotive brand.

While committed to my growth at the dealership level, I gained additional business training and expertise studying Business Management at UNH of Manchester and Colby-Sawyer College, and also attended specialized Automotive Academy, NADA Academy, to further my knowledge of the industry.

I’m extremely passionate about technology and I am always looking into building on that to better help our team adapt and strengthen our DCD family as a whole. When I’m not busy analyzing automotive data, I enjoy spending as much time with my wife, our two sons, and our daughter. We spend the majority of our time outside whether we go hiking, boating, and swimming in the summers or skiing and sledding in the New England winters.
