Gary's father, James M. Uvanni Jr. (Moose) started this company in 1972. Moose was passionate about family and wanted a business that reflected his values in everyday interaction, his experience in car sales laid the platform into this company. Moose taught all of his boys, the Late James M. Uvanni lll, Michael J. Uvanni, Paul J. Uvanni, and Gary W. Uvanni, the value of great customer service as well as many life lessons that they would all need to succeed in life. The foundation of our company today still stands on what Moose had implemented in 1972. We are proud to serve you, and our service we provide to you will reflect what Moose stood for. Gary started working for his father in the reconditioning and mechanical departments when he was just 16 years old. After his father's passing in 1989, James,Paul, & Gary, kept the dealership going to honor their fathers wishes. Eventually, James Uvanni went on to purchase two new car franchises. During his years of ownership, he has shared his knowledge for success with his brothers. Paul Uvanni owns Victory Chrysler Dodge Ram in Rome, NY. Gary found it vital to keep the company that his father started in 1972 in business and it has grown substantially to a store that reflects a new car store. Uvanni Motors success is due to Gary's father, the mentor-ship from his brothers and the continued commitment and sacrifices that Gary has made to this company. He has tirelessly put in long hours and leads his employees by example. No job or work within the company is below him. He is hands on with every aspect of the company and is often involved with every transaction and sale.
