Shawn Hanlon

President - NH Locations

I began working in the automotive industry when I was just 17 at a local Toyota dealership as a recon technician detailing vehicles. After working my way through various positions I became the General Manager at the Berlin City Automotive Group in Gorham, NH at the age of 23 and remained there for 14 years. During this time I worked closely with owner Dan Dagesse learning variable and fixed operations, inventory management, marketing, cash flow, budgeting/forecasting, as well as the importance of maintaining high customer and employee satisfaction.

In 2009 I ventured out and opened AutoNorth Pre-Owned Superstore in Gorham, NH. After 10 years of success and growth, in 2019 I partnered up with the Dagesse’s joining the DCD Automotive Holdings team. We acquired Plymouth Ford in 2019 and the AutoServ Group in Tilton, NH in December 2020. I currently oversee all aspects of the New Hampshire dealership operations.

I have lived in Gorham, NH for the past 25 years with my wife Stephanie and our beloved dog “CJ”. I am deeply rooted in the North Country and Central NH communities and take great pride in helping those in need through various community involvement programs. I have served on the board of the NH Auto Dealers Association since 2016 and as its Chairman in 2019. When not working, I enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities; I’m an avid hunter, ATV, and snowmobile enthusiast, and am an occasional golfer in the summertime. My most recent passion is a frame-off restoration of a vintage 1973 International Scout II.
