Rod started in the business in 1979 as a hobby. Rod had a passion for hot-rod cars and learned to custom paint in high school.

Over the next 29 years Rod grew the business to $50 million in annual revenues, having over 100,000 vehicles on the road. Building on this rich heritage Rod is still championing the cause of cutting edge design and vehicle specialization and continues to develop innovative solutions for customer’s unique transportation needs. On any given day (or night) Rod may still be found in his own personal design lab and workshop at MCM Custom Vehicles, LLC inspiring his “dream team” of engineers in the development of the next generation of signature lifestyle enhanced luxury vehicles.
