  • Jim Powers
    Owner and President

    Jim Powers, owner of Sunnyside Acura, has been involved in the local community for many years. From supporting Nashua High athletic programs, to his involvement with and support of the Nashua Boys and Girls Club, he has always made a point of giving back to the community that supports his business.

    Jim began his career at Sunnyside Acura over twenty years ago as sales manager, and has since purchased the dealership. As a dealer, Jim wasn't satisfied with the status-quo. He joined the Acura National Dealer Council where he became the head of that group. Jim provided leadership to the dealer body when he brought the collective concerns and opinions of Acura dealers to the top people in the corporation.

    His dealership has gained special recognition by earning the much-sought-after Dealer of Distinction - Precision Team Award twelve times over. Customer loyalty, gained by providing an unparalleled experience for every customer is one of the key principals that Jim has instilled in all of the associates who make up the Sunnyside team.

  • Nadi Malek
    Managing Partner

    Originally growing up on the banks of the Nile, Nadi Malek is not a stranger to the challenges of the world. Earning his Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration while residing in Cairo allowed for a great perspective into the import and export market.

    In his early twenty's Nadi joined other family members claiming residency in Canada. In his late Twenty's Nadi moved to New Hampshire, working and representing a Swedish Automotive product line where he quickly moved up the ranks to Sales Director of multiple stores.  After an eight year tenure, Nadi took a position in the same role for a product line from the Asian market.  Nadi leveraged this opportunity to grow his experience and expertise in the automotive industry.  Two years later Nadi brought his expertise and vision to the team at Sunnyside Acura in Nashua.

    Nadi has settled in with Sunnyside Acura as Managing Partner where he describes it as "home"!
