At Bimmer Haus we specialize in the care and feeding of BMWs and MINIs as well as their owners. The bulk of our work is routine service, maintenance, and repairs, but we are also nationally renowned for building and maintaining (and driving) national championship BMW race cars. Our staff is also active in BMW driver training and education and has actively supported local and national BMW CCA activities since the day we opened. You will not find a more competent staff nor more comprehensive BMW and MINI service experience anywhere.
Meet Our Team
President & General Manager
Bob manages the day-to-day business operations of the Bimmer Haus and serves as a consultant on all racecar prep and development. Bob's colorful resume includes experience as a film and television producer, racing event promoter, stunt driver and champion race car driver and avid collector of BMW vehicles.
Front Desk, Bookkeeper, Controller
Patty has been co-owner with husband, Bob, since Bimmer Haus opened its doors in 2001. Until recently she has remained behind the scenes quietly handling marketing and customer satisfaction duties in her spare time while managing a successful dental practice in Boulder. When her former boss retired, Patty began filling in at the BHP front desk a couple days a week while Pat was taking classes.
Although Patty is a new face to the Bimmer Haus office, she is no stranger to the motorsports world. Patty is a 17-time National Champion in SCCA Solo and ProSolo competition and has been awarded the prestigious SCCA Solo Driver of Eminence and Spirit of the Sport Awards and is the only driver, male or female, in SCCA Solo history to win National Championships in 5 different racing categories.
For the record, I taught Patty how to drive when she was 15 so she couldn't have done it without me! (That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)
Seriously... Patty brings a lifetime of experience not only in motorsports but also in the business world having achieved success as one of the nation's top skip tracer/collectors for a major Fortune 500 company and coordinated world-wide travel and film and television distribution for a top independent filmmaker.
In recent years Patty has made 11 trips to Afghanistan with husband Bob to provide emergency aid and long term developmental support in a refugee camp called Barek Aub north of Kabul and has plans to go back again in 2018. She also actively serves at Flatirons Church and supports several local non-profit organizations.
In those rare moments when not working, racing, or traveling, Patty is a highly competitive racquetball player. She will tell you that she's not "competitive," but the guys at the racquet club will tell you otherwise. She also enjoys hiking in the foothills all around Boulder with her girlfriends.
Patty brings a new level of customer service to the BHP front desk with a smile and spiritied attitude that's second to none.
Bill may be relatively new to the Bimmer Haus staff, but his name is highly recognizable throughout the Front Range as a BMW guy having served for 12 years as a Senior Service Advisor at Gebhardt BMW in Boulder and most recently as Service Manager at Green Eyed Motors also in Boulder. Bill’s heart and soul yearned to once again work with BMW owners and we are thrilled to welcome him to our Bimmer Haus family.
Bill and his wife, Krissy, love to travel with their two kids and Catahoula Hound (is that the coolest breed name ever?) making the most of their time in the Colorado outdoors hiking, biking, skiing, snow shoeing, camping, sampling craft brews, and hard core relaxing at their favorite pools and beaches. And when at home, Bill loves to cook... and says he’s never met a recipe he didn’t like.
Bill and Krissy currently own two BMWs: an E46 330Xi and E70 X5 3.0 in addition to a not-so-mildly modified 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, their go-to back country mode of travel.
Bill brings a level of service writing expertise and a welcoming smile that is sure to win everyone over.
Jon may be new to Bimmer Haus, but he's a BMW veteran and we are delighted to have him as a key member of the Bimmer Haus family.
He’s got some big shoes to fill as Chief Tech Jim Leithauser left to pursue opportunities at Pikes Peak Int’l Raceway, but Jon has amassed some impressive credentials of his own over the years.
A 1999 graduate of BMW’s factory STEP program, Jon served for several years as a Lead Diagnostic Technician at two of Southern California’s top BMW dealerships before moving to Colorado where he served for five years as Shop Foreman at Gebhardt BMW in Boulder and for eight years as a Team Leader and BMW Certified Preowned Inspector and Technician at BMW of Denver (Murray Motors).
Along the way Jon was acknowledged as Employee of the Year at Brecht BMW and was recognized by BMW North America while at BMW Denver as one of the Top Technicians in the USA for Customer Satisfaction!
When not wrenching on customer BMW’s and MINI’s, Jon and his wife, Robyn, cherish their family time with their three children, one grandson, and two dogs. Together they also enjoy going to flea markets, streaming video games on Twitch, and occasionally skiing, hiking, and 4-wheeling. Jon boldly claims he is undefeated at the video game "Overwatch" when competing against his daughter, who will privately tell you that “daddy cheats a lot.” Robyn is also an accomplished Designer, Home Stager, and excellent cook. (Jon adds: especially desserts!)
Jon and Robyn have been longtime BMW owners and their stable currently includes Robyn's nice 2012 BMW 528, his daughter's 2016 BMW 320, and a sweet 1999 Toyota Tacoma pickup Jon has owned since new.
Technician & High Performance Specialist
He's baaaaaaaack! Dan has returned to the roost as Technician and High Performance Specialist here at Bimmer Haus!
Dan has returned for his second stint here at Bimmer Haus. He left in 2012 to pursue other opportunities that included serving as an official with the Pirelli World Challenge Series, which still continues. When not traveling with the PWCS Dan is here managing our high performance and aftermarket clients and helping out wherever needed.
Many of you already know Dan as past Chairman of the Rocky Mtn. Chapter's Autocross program, past President of the Rocky Mtn. Chapter, and as an instructor at RMC and SCCA Driving Schools! But he's also a very experienced Technician -- he comes to us after serving as a Technician at Co's BMW Center in Loveland following nearly a decade of work on other fine European cars in Boulder. And the guy knows high performance... he has helped develop many of the top BMW track and autocross cars in the region.
Dan, like Jim, holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering (from UCSB... I hate him) and has been working on cars for more than 30 years.
When he's not working on cars, racing, or teaching, Dan says he likes to go snowboarding or play hockey.
Come on by and welcome him back!
