Thomas Plucinsky is the Head of BMW Group Product Communications for BMW of North America. Tom has been with BMW for 29 years in both Canada and the USA, spending time in product strategy, parts and service, and the motorcycle division prior to his current role. Tom leads a team that is responsible for product and technology communications with the media for BMW, MINI, BMW Motorrad, as well as Motorsport and Classic. He is the BMW North America historian and is responsible for the BMW USA Classic Collection which includes a range of vehicles that represent the 40 plus year history of BMW in North America. He is an avid automotive enthusiast who has been honing his driving skills in cars and motorcycles since he was old enough to drive and he is the only BMW North America employee checked out to drive all the classic race cars in the collection.
I was fortunate to meet Tom at the opening of the LeMay – America’s Car Museum, Heroes of Bavaria exhibit where he brought some of BMW Classic’s race cars to the museum, which are now on display through May 2019.
