Issa Secures An American Legacy
The American dream could have been adopted from Darrell Issa's life.
Founder of Directed Electronics Inc. (DEI), Chairman of the Board of CEA's Executive Committee, President of the Washington, DC-based American Task Force for Lebanon and Chairman of the Lincoln Club of San Diego, a group working to promote the Republican party in California, Issa was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to working class immigrant parents in 1953. After 10 years in the U.S. Army, having obtained the rank of Captain, Issa and his wife, Katharine, invested their entire life savings of $7,000 into Directed Electronics; it became incorporated in 1982.
Because he personifies the American dream and has dedication much of his life's work to the consumer electronics industry, Dealerscope is honored to name Darrell Issa to its Hall of Fame.
