As President of DCH Auto Operations, Liang will oversee all auto operations. His vision for this role is to expand upon the foundation established by his predecessors, Shau-wai Lam and Susan Scarola, and to continue to instill The DCH Way of doing business until it becomes the standard for excellence in automotive retailing.

"Over the last several years, DCH has set a long-term goal of further growing a company that operates at the highest levels of performance and integrity, which we call The DCH Way," said Liang.  "My focus will be to continue that work, ensuring this prosperous company will always be a distinctive and heralded retailer."
