McLEAN, Va. - 

Tamara Darvish is embarking on another automotive industry endeavor.

Capital Automotive Real Estate Services — which orchestrates custom tailored financing packages for dealers — announced that Darvish joined the company as its new chief operating officer.

Capital Automotive highlighted that Darvish will use her knowledge and expertise to lead both the acquisition and real estate teams. The company insisted that she has achieved results in the past with her “bold execution, game-changing initiatives and ability to grow a business exponentially.”

Darvish most recently held the position of COO at Pentagon Federal (PenFed) Credit Union, where she spearheaded efforts to grow assets by billions by generating millions of dollars of origination growth each month.

Prior to her work at PenFed, she was the executive vice president at DARCARS Automotive Group.  It was at DARCARS that she honed her skills in the automotive industry by growing the family business from three franchises to more than 20 dealerships, maintaining year-over-yer profitability, and serving on multiple industry boards and spending significant time advocating for dealers with members of Congress.

“Tamara brings with her an abundance of knowledge and experience in retail automotive and banking industries. She will be a great asset to our already outstanding team,” said Jay Ferriero, president and chief executive officer of Capital Automotive.
