    Jim Powers

    CEO

    Sunnyside Acura Team Member Since 1/1/88.

    Jim Powers, majority 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-five years ago as sales manager. 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.

    The 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.

    Joseph A. Mitchell
    December 18th, 1948 to July 25th, 2017

    Father – Mentor – Friend – You are in our hearts.

    Joseph “Joe”, “Joey”, “Mitchell” Anthony Mitchell, age 68, of Nashua, New Hampshire, passed away peacefully on Tuesday July 25, 2017 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack, New Hampshire after a 23-year battle with prostate cancer. He is survived by his beloved wife Madonna (Jenkins) Mitchell of Nova Scotia, Canada, with whom he recently celebrated his 46th wedding anniversary.

    Joe was born December 18, 1948 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Anthony and Mary Mitchell and was an only child. He graduated Rindge Latin Technical School in 1966 and went on to earn an Engineering degree from Northeastern University in Boston.

    Joe had 45 years of experience in the automotive industry and was well accomplished and respected by those he worked with. He started his career in 1970 at Boston Volvo and also worked Peter Hallissy Chevrolet in Chelmsford, MA and 1400 Motors in Lowell, MA. His last 25 years were spent at Sunnyside Acura in Nashua, New Hampshire as General Manager and Vice President. He regarded the team at Sunnyside Acura as family and, through his leadership, they achieved many accolades together.

    Joe loved helping others and supported numerous causes in and around the Boston area both personally and professionally. He led a prostate cancer support group at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for 15 years. Joe served as a member of the State of New Hampshire New Motor Vehicle Arbitration Board, representing dealers across the state. He enjoyed many years with the Toastmasters Club. He was a member of the Rotary Club of Nashua West and he supported the Meals on Wheels program.

    He was an accomplished pilot and loved flying; he frequently flew Cessna aircraft out of Nashua Airport – Boire Field. He was health conscious and enjoyed exercising at the gym, running, and biking. He came to love Cape Cod during his childhood, especially Hyannis, Massachusetts, and continued to be drawn back there throughout his life, more recently sharing that love with his two grandchildren, Jonah and Sydney. He also had fond memories of the many miles driven and time spent with in-laws in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia, Canada.

    Family was the most important thing to Joe. He loved spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren; he cherished his role as grandfather, affectionately known as Grampy. He is also survived by his daughter Stacey Renee (Mitchell) Keumurian, her husband Stephen and their two children Jonah Joseph and Sydney Elizabeth of Tyngsborough, Massachusetts; and his son Jeffrey Joseph Mitchell of Nashua, New Hampshire. In addition he is survived by many loving members of the McIntyre family of Manchester, New Hampshire; the Clarkson family of Southern California; the Jenkins family of Nova Scotia, Canada; and the Antonelli family of the Boston area. He also leaves behind many friends and neighbors who he cared for deeply.

    My hobbies are: to travel and have an opportunity to meet people from all over the world and learn a little about their cultures. Traveling was always something I’ve wanted to do since I was very little and has remained a passion of mine. I have had the opportunity to travel various exotic places and have made friends all over the world.

    I grew up in Acton, MA and moved to Nashua about six years ago. I joined Sunnyside Acura in 2003 with this being my first entry in the automotive business. My background is in Accounting, but I enjoy the interaction with customers leading me to join Sunnyside Acura.

    I enjoy skiing during the winter and am a Certified Level 3 ski instructor having taught skiing since 1975 while in college. For fun I am in an adult ski race league during the winter, and play some tennis and golf during the spring, summer, and fall.

    I have three great kids, although I really can’t call them kids anymore. My older daughter graduated from Holy Cross in 2010 and now lives in Massachusetts with her husband who just completed a four year tour in the Air Force. My younger graduated from Holy Cross in 2013 and works for a non profit organization in Maine. My son lives in Maine and is currently taking college courses.

    My focus is to earn your business and make sure that all your needs are being met. In addition, building a long term relationship is important in order to grow the business.

    I appreciate the opportunity to meet you and explore how our line of Acura vehicles will meet and exceed your needs.
