David’s extensive international business experience comes by way of two expat tours to Japan in upper-management positions for two Fortune 100 multinational corporations. David’s extensive travels and business experience paved the way for his nearly two-decade involvement as an international broker of rare classic vehicles. David’s bilingual skills (English and Japanese) and extensive travels to Japan and Europe have refined his understanding of clients’ diverse needs.  As a result, his incisive respect for and insight into cultural differences and backgrounds have also made him one of the industry’s most sought after brokers who caters to the highest echelons of car collectors worldwide.

David’s interest in Ferrari and classic cars began during his high school years in Tokyo, Japan. David spent endless hours in the library reading every car magazine he could obtain. This practice combined with his auto mechanics course ultimately solidified his passion for all things automotive. These experiences, among others, became a catalyst for David’s decision nearly twenty years ago to jump at the opportunity to facilitate car collectors’ passions in procuring classic Ferrari.
  In a recent interview, David openly answered questions to provide clients with further insight into his character and business philosophies:

What sets you apart from the competition, and why should clients trust or choose you?

I would have to say it’s the way I handle my business with discretion, a high level of trust, integrity, and simplicity. My corporate background and international business experience are also the backbone from which I draw to serve a highly successful client base, each of whom has their own unique needs. I also pride myself on being a reliable and meticulous person who provides fair and straightforward transactions for a highly demanding group of domestic and foreign clients. I have nearly a twenty-year record of procuring and selling some of the most prolific and desirable collector Ferrari and other collector cars to a world-class clientele, the majority of who are repeat clients.

Thus far, what would you say are your greatest automotive experiences or achievements?

There are several, but at the top of the list are…
Building a substantial base of long-term client relationships, many of which have turned into personal friendships over the years.
Selling the pinnacle of all Ferrari —250 GTO—twice. I sold it first in 1993, and also exhibited it for its owner at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1994. I sold it again in 2004 and it became one of the few Ferrari ever to be sold for over $10 million.
Bringing one of the twelve Series-2 Ferrari 275 GTB/Cs back to its 1967 Le Mans GT class race-winning condition and then presenting it and winning 2nd place in the Competition Ferrari class at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

What would your ultimate experience be?

Taking a year off from work and other obligations to run the following rallies:
Mille Miglia (MM)
Tour Auto (TA)
250 GTO Reunion
Numerous other rallies and events in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
