Smythe Volvo Grand Opening was a huge success!

The accomplished team at Smythe Volvo hosted an elegant grand opening celebration in their new showroom in Summit, NJ on June 17.  Smythe Volvo is one of the longest standing Volvo dealers in the U.S. and with the successful launch of its state-of-the-art showroom; it is now also one of the largest.

The mayor of Summit, Ellen Dickson, started off the evening with a ribbon cutting ceremony after conveying her well wishes for the promising new dealership.  Later in the evening, Kevin Flanagan, President of Smythe Volvo Inc., delivered a welcoming introduction speech, followed up by Tony Nicolosi, President and CEO of Volvo Cars North America, who had nothing but positive words to share with the over 200 attendees.  Volvo executives from around the world were present at the event, such as President and CEO of Volvo Car Group Hakan Samuelsson. A guest appearance from New York Giants running back, Rashad Jennings, was a highlight of the night due to his fun-loving personality.

The guests mingled to the sounds of “Rhythm for Real,” a funk and jazz band from Madison High School, while they sipped on cocktails courtesy of PURE Vodka.  The attendees were also welcomed to munch on hors d’oeuvres catered by the Brownstone.  For dessert, Palermo’s bakery donated an eye-catching, P1800 shaped cake for all attendees not only to eat, but also to look at.  There was also an informational table for “Alex’s Lemonade Stand,” a foundation in support of children’s cancer and cancer research, out all night.  Wells Fargo’s sponsorship at the delightful event helped Smythe Volvo kick start its long awaited opening in luxury!

There were over nine Volvo cars on display in the polished dealership. Jakob, the first Volvo ever made, and the rare and vintage P1900 were both key focal points for guests to admire.
