The Parkway Family

The Durdin Family is committed to the success of Parkway Chevrolet, Parkway Family Mazda-Kia, and Parkway Family Insurance Agency.  We have implemented many changes over the past few years to improve operations and maintain superior customer satisfaction.  Our family is strongly rooted in the Tomball community and is quickly becoming part of the Kingwood/Humble communities.  We also support our local schools, churches (of various denominations), the FFA and other worthy organizations.


A brief biography of each member of the family follows:



Dealer and Owner, Parkway Chevrolet, Inc.


In 1979, Jean Durdin along with her husband Ray opened the doors to Parkway Chevrolet in Tomball. Through the years, she has turned Parkway into one of the most successful dealerships in the Houston metropolitan area. What's more, along with overseeing total daily operations, Jean was the driving force for Parkway's new 77,000 square foot building.  She also had Parkway Chevrolet certified as a National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC).


More recently Jean saw the opportunities opening up for the use of Natural Gas Vehicles both here in Texas and throughout the United States.  She set her focus on educating others on how to use this great natural resource and converting Chevrolets as either bi-fuel or wholly dedicated natural gas vehicles.  In 2009 Parkway Chevrolet converted its first vehicle to natural gas and has grown its conversion production capabilities to 100 vehicles a month.




Vice President, Parkway Chevrolet,

Parkway Family Mazda-Kia,


In 1994, Sharilyn left her Florida law practice to join her family at Parkway Chevrolet.  Through the years she has spent time learning about each department at the dealership and working with each department manager.  Sharilyn is now the company spokesperson, community and customer relations specialist, legal liaison and provides human resources oversight for all of our businesses.  Sharilyn teams up with the management of each dealership and department for advertising and marketing efforts.  Community involvement is really important to the family and Sharilyn represents the family interests at many community events, particularly in Tomball. 




General Manager, Parkway Chevrolet

Forbes came to work for Parkway Chevrolet full-time when he graduated from Hobart William Smith College in May 2001.  He built our internet department and saw our internet sales increase dramatically.  He also worked with various department managers in learning each department of the dealership as part of his National Automobile Dealer Association (NADA) Dealer Training Program.   He is now the General Manager of the Chevrolet store.  He emphasizes training in all departments, for everyone.  Forbes' primary responsibility is the daily operations of the dealership.  He is also heavily involved in the long range planning.  He is currently serving as Chairman of our NADA 20 Group.
