San Jose Vespa ... The People

Chris Hodgson has over 30 years of experience in all aspects of motorcycling and a true enthusiasm for performance bikes. His professional career began with college graduation with a BS in airline maintenance management with a minor in mechanical engineering and traces an arc from racing mechanic to product designer, entrepreneur and dealership owner.

Starting with a part time job as a BMW mechanic while working his way through college in 1974, Chris has been actively involved with BMW motorcycles for 30+ years. His association with San Jose BMW began as service manager in 1977. He started racing BMWs in 1975 and built the San Jose BMW which won the last national Superbike race for BMW in Loudon NH in 1978. Chris left San Jose BMW in 1981 to found CC Products, an aftermarket company dedicated to BMW performance and handling upgrades.

Chris' success with CC Products allowed him to return to San Jose BMW and purchase the business in 1992. Chris has an unparalleled knowledge of BMWs and the best ways to improve them as well as the ability and skill to turn those ideas into real products.

Kenan Rappuchi has nearly 20 years of leadership experience in business management and consulting, most recently as President of Ventures Connect, Inc., an executive search firm in Silicon Valley. A passionate and talented motorcyclist, Kenan has been riding for over 30 years and roadracing at the club and professional level since 1997.

Kenan partnered up with Chris & San Jose BMW in early 2002, bringing a strong business and motorcycling background to perfectly complement Hodgson's technical expertise. Kenan also specializes in set-up of suspension systems, a skill he perfected from his successful racing experience.

Chris & Kenan have paved the way for San Jose BMW to become the Northern California Bay Area's leading BMW dealership, resulting in the top ranking in sales in the entire Bay Area for 2003 and year to date 2004.
