Longtime eLEAD CRM Customer and Auto Dealer, Tammy Darvish, Releases New Book“Outraged: How Detroit and the Wall Street Car Czars Killed The American Dream”

(DALLAS, October 14, 2011) – Industry leading automotive CRM and marketing provider, eLEAD CRM, announce the new book release of its longtime customer, Tammy Darvish who currently serves as Vice President of DARCARS Automotive Group. Outraged – How Detroit and the Wall Street Car Czars Killed The American Dream” is now available at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.

“Outraged” is a vivid account of the most misunderstood, or little-known, automotive story, the collapse of the “Detroit Two” automakers, General Motors Company and Chrysler, in the economic upheaval of 2009.  The book embarks on events that transpired within the temporary government group designated to rescue the automakers and the dealer owner’s uphill battle to regain economic rights– from the courtroom – to Congress – to the White House. Darvish portrays how some dealers saw new life, while a good portion of “main-street” car dealers, located in rural or small to mid-size towns, were rejected and hung out to dry.

“Outraged is sure to reignite the controversy surrounding the battle between automotive dealers and the entities that engineered their demise, including the US Auto Task Force,” stated Tammy Darvish, Vice President of DARCARS Automotive Group. “As a key participant in the 2009 drama, the book was written to document and candidly reveal the “murder” of the American dream, from the perspective of an entrepreneur who was affected by the automotive industry bailout during government-ordered corporate restructurings.”

“As an automotive professional and witness to the great losses from 2008 and 2009, I know how important Tammy’s role was in a number of the proceedings. All directly related to her deep passion for the auto business, as well as her own deep patriotic sentiments to our country,” stated Bill Wittenmyer, Vice President of eLEAD CRM.  “I am excited and proud to see her publish this story and share these lessons.”
