Josh began his career with BMW in 2000, as a Master Level Technician for a dealership in Memphis, TN after completing the BMW STEP training program. From there, he has worked at multiple dealerships between Raleigh, NC and Sarasota, FL, serving in multiple roles such as parts, service advisor as well as service manager over a Lamborghini franchise.
He loves BMWs so much, he has two! A 335d for a daily driver, and a 330i for the track. In his spare time, you will find him working on computers and growing ridiculously hot peppers.
My passion for BMWs started when I began my first training class. I enjoyed learning about the brand. Hearing about a company so small with such attention to detail was second to none.
My first BMW experience was the first time I got behind the wheel of an E60 M5 SMG. It was turned all the way up and just going. It was an amazing feeling of power and the pure performance.
I am a factory trained BMW master tech with advanced diagnostic certifications. I am also trained as a dynamometer operator.
I choose BPC for my career because I wanted to be in the forefront of performance and having the spotless record for a premium service experience. My favorite part of my job is taking care of our customers and putting them first. Our customers make our company successful. Without our customers we would not be where we are today.

My passion for BMWs started in 2015 when I was still in high school and had the opportunity to work on GTS3/4 BMW race cars. I enjoyed being able to drive and ride in customer cars as I worked on them.
My training with BMWs was formalized with the BPC training program. I choose to work with BPC because of their expert knowledge and the fact that I would be working along side expert technicians. I love working on cars in general and the build quality of BMW makes it a much more pleasurable experience and career.
My passion for BMWs began once I started working for BPC and learning more about the BMW lifestyle. My first time behind a BMW wheel was in a 2011 M-Sport 335d.
I have 1 year of experience so far with BMW service and enjoyed the BPC training program. The owner of BPC, Dan, scouted me for this position and it was the best decision I have made career wise yet 😊.
I enjoyed my job and the knowledge behind it all. We have some smart guys working on some pretty smart cars. These guys know what they are doing and have an honest way of doing it.
My passion began at my first service shop. I ended up helping out in the shop on a day we were short-handed, performing A routine service and service to a coolant concern. From there it was known that a lot of the interaction I had with my BMW customers needed little extra attention to their vehicle, something most shops lose sight of.
My first BMW experience was performing oil service. I was also a service advisor at the time. At that time the customer has no idea of important services that his car needing and I was the one to bring them to his attention, and it turned saved him from potentially needing a new engine. This was the driving force of wanting to make sure every customer from there on out had a good multi point inspection and explained items needed or items due.
My training with BMW began with working and advising on German/ European Vehicles in general. In the past, I worked at service shops that dealt with Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Mercedes And BMW. My training with BPC began with listening to the trustworthy technicians we have and completing Elite Masters courses for service advising.
Working for BPC was an opportunity to further my services in helping others. The enjoyment I receive is from the services I help to provide. Ultimately, it all goes back to giving customers the satisfaction that they are getting the best service provided when it comes to BMW. Knowing we are a one-stop shop is important to me. I enjoy knowing we have the best technicians that a service shop can provide.p
My passion began back in 2014. My first BMW was a fully modified N54 335i. I enjoyed the style, and the design inside and out. My training includes the BPC parts training program as well as in depth research of BMW OEM Guidelines
I chose to work with BPC because i enjoy coming to work with people who share the same passion and want to succeed as much as everyone else. I enjoy being able to learn something new every day and share my knowledge with others and overall. I find gratitude in working for this company and coworkers who have a drive and determination similar to mine. I take pride in their work that I do and enjoy surrounding myself with like-minded coworkers.
