More About the Board & Staff
Eric started in the GGC about 5 years ago with a car control clinic and then autocross and he’s been hooked ever since! Now he’s President of the Chapter and honored to be able to serve the GGC Membership. Eric is also an avid motorcycle rider (BMWs of course) and loves exploring what California has to offer from the saddle of his GS.
Tammi has been obsessed with cars since long before she could drive. Drag racing, road racing, autocross, rally, endurance events like One Lap of America, the Open Track Challenge, the Great Race, Targa Newfoundland, driving schools at the Nurburgring, if it’s a fun way to play with cars, she’s probably done it or planning on doing it. Helping teens learn life-saving car control skills is also important to Tammi, so that’s why she founded the BMW CCA Foundation and its Street Survival program, and helped found the NASA Car Control Clinic program and why she’s GGC’s driving events coordinator. Tammi also love rollercoasters, ziplining, and volunteering.
As both the Area Representative for San Francisco and board secretary, you can catch Rowan at your local Cars and Coffee or Meet Up. He has been addicted to BMW, driving, collecting and tinkering with them since 2000. He currently drives an E36 and is always looking for another.
Adam Mahoney is GGC’s new Membership Chair for the Golden Gate Chapter! He began his adventure with BMW just a few years ago with the purchase of a Mini Cooper S and shortly thereafter, his first BMW 3 Series. He quickly fell in love not only with the cars and the brand but the incredible people in the community. Most recently, he held the role of Co-East Bay Area Representative and he looks forward to continuing to serve and grow the chapter as Membership Chair.
Members at large
Andy’s been a member of the BMW CCA since the mid ’80s (the decade, not his age). Some time near the end of 2012, he and his wife Dana got bitten by the motorsports bug and ever since have been autocrossing and driving on tracks around the country every chance they can get. He’s been involved in the Chapter’s Car Control Clinic program since 2013 and nowadays, besides being a CCC and autocross instructor, he’s one of the Chapter’s CCC co-coordinators, helping to plan and run the clinics. When he’s not driving or working on your registrations in MSR, he enjoys board games, math, music and hanging out with Dana and the cats.
