Our Team

Building a Legacy

Daniel Crainic (our Founder) came over to the United States from Romania when he was 4 years old.  At this time, Romania was in the middle of a revolutionary wave which ultimately resulted in the end of communistic rule in Central and Eastern Europe.  This was a violent and tumultuous time in Romania. Daniel’s parents overcame many obstacles and worked very hard to give their family opportunity within the United States. This background has instilled a very hard-working mentality in Daniel with a strong foundation of integrity, which were characteristics passed down from his parents.

Daniel grew up in the Portland, Oregon area, which is where his entrepreneurial mind began to work with the purchase of a Volvo 850, which he later sold for a profit of $700.  Being ambitious, he bought another Volvo 850 and achieved another positive result.  Daniel then began buying every Volvo 850 he could get his hands on, and the rest is history. 

By the end of his high school years, he had sold over 250 cars.  In order keep up with this new-found sales volume, Daniel relocated his business from his parent’s driveway to a location at 24th and Holgate in Portland, then to another location at 27th and Holgate in Portland; and finally, to 18625 SE McLoughlin Boulevard in Milwaukie, Oregon; and is known as D&C Motor Company (“D&C”). In recent years Daniel has completed multiple new franchise auto dealership acquisitions.  

Daniel still resides in Portland with his lovely wife, three sons and one daughter. They very much enjoy being a part of their community.

Our Mission

We are committed to providing top-shelf service to our customers and being a good steward to our manufacturer and our brand. This requires a culture that empowers its employees.

We look forward to establishing goals and objectives for each employee, department, and ultimately the company. Let’s work together to create this culture and to hold each other accountable to a standard and a performance we all want to be a part of.

An employee who upholds our mission is Jesse, a salesman at our Volvo location (pictured left). Jesse always does something for the customer, whether it be giving them flowers, chocolate, or champagne. It's become his trademark! One customer bought a Jeep for his daughter, and he bought a stuffed elephant for her to have as a copilot.
