Beau Boeckmann grew up on the showroom floors of Galpin dealerships learning the ropes from his father, Bert Boeckmann, a man widely recognized as one of the most successful and respected automobile dealers in the country. Beau had the opportunity to work with a variety of Galpin dealerships and eventually worked his way up to being named President and COO of Galpin in 2015.
In 2006, Beau launched Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) to create “Galpinized” vehicles in the spirit of the old Galpin motto: ”If you can dream it, we can build it!” Beau then brought the MTV show Pimp My Ride to Galpin Auto Sports (along with “Mad Mike” Martin) for its final two seasons. Beau later recruited car builder and restorer Dave Shuten to help create the Galpin Speed Shop, where Dave builds and restores some of the most iconic cars and hot rods in the world.
Not just a Ford man, Beau is passionate about all things automotive and he gets just as much pleasure and enjoyment out of a 19th century Veteran car as he does out of a multi-million dollar hypercar. Beau has rubbed shoulders and directly worked with some of the most iconic figures in the industry, including Carroll Shelby, George Barris and Lee Iacocca. And with so much name recognition and influence, he has a rolodex filled with names to call in order to help him find exactly what he needs to create or restore any car he lays eyes on.
