Darwin purchased Evolution Automotive in 2014 from the second owner. In the beginning, he was the shop’s front-man/technician/everything guy, but as business has grown, he is now functioning in a bit more behind-the-scenes role. However, he still knows most of our customers by name, and whether you see him in the shop or not, he is here making sure you have an excellent experience at Evolution Automotive. Today, Darwin has more than 25 years of auto industry experience, going back to high school when he won a full scholarship to a GM-certified automotive college program in Eugene, OR. After earning his auto mechanics degree, he went on to work for a Volvo dealership in Portland, as well as two independent Volvo repair shops. As many of our customers know, Darwin still loves working on Volvos, and as you drive by the shop, you’re likely to see many Volvos here.
Darwin and his wife, Hannah, have three children. You will see them in the shop from time to time. Darwin loves being a dad and enjoys spending time with all his kids in his spare time. He also loves making people laugh and even considered becoming a standup comedian at one point in time.
