About Us

Co-founders Mark Gambardella and Mike Lucia built Chamois Carwash from the ground up — literally! After earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Mark worked for a variety of engineering firms before landing at Morrison Homes. When the opportunity came along in August of 1997 to partner with his brother-in-law Mike and purchase a prime Danville lot on Crow Canyon Road, Mark put that home-building experience to work, acting as the general contractor and supervising every step of the construction of the Chamois facility.

Sadly, Mike passed away in 2011, but his widow, Darlene Mosley, remains a supportive partner in the business. Darlene has lived in the Blackhawk and Diablo area for more than 30 years, and maintains strong ties in the community.
