Michael  Marchi
Michael Marchi
Dealer Principal

In late 2011, Comox Valley Dodge added Michael (Mike) Marchi as our Dealer Principal. An auto industry vet, Mike has worked with Canadian dealerships since his college days at the University of Victoria. A small town boy, Mike’s humble beginnings pervade his management style. He doesn’t sit in an ivory tower barking out orders; he is on the sales floor shaking hands and building relationships. Besides his love for his family, music, and fitness, Mike also holds a passion for people. His greatest joy in life is helping those in need. Mike and the team at Comox Valley Dodge support the community by giving money to YANA (You Are Not Alone), Tour de Rock, the hospital foundation, and donating vehicles to the ambulance and fire departments. Mike and the staff at Comox Valley Dodge are one big family. They hold monthly BBQs in the summer, give rides to customers without vehicles, bring donuts to those who look hungry, and do everything they can to create an amazing customer service experience.In late 2011, Comox Valley Dodge added Michael (Mike) Marchi as our Dealer Principal.

I was born and raised in Victoria, BC and spent my younger adult years living in Calgary, Toronto, and most recently, Seattle.

Family life keeps my fiancé and I extremely busy; between the two of us we have 4 kiddos, 3 of which hockey at rep level. Weekday mornings, weekday nights, and weekends are consumed with hockey and we love every minute of it.
