019 David Madeira President and CEO of the LeMay-America's Car Museum talks about motorcycles rides to Nepal and overcoming unsurmountable challenges.
David Madeira is not your typical sit-behind-the-desk CEO. He has served as President and CEO of LeMay-America’s Car Museum since 2002. David has been on some amazing adventures having ridden his motorcycle across 25 countries from Spain to Nepal. His career as a fundraiser in the educational field is long and impressive. After learning that the owners of the world’s largest car collection were trying to create a museum around their automobile treasures, David jumped in to action and spent years helping develop what has become a spectacular car museum located in Tacoma Washington. It is a legacy to the late Harold LeMay who with his wife Nancy, collected their incredible collection. The museum opened in 2012 with David at the helm leading a dedicated team who cares for the collection. That is when he’s not riding his motorcycles through Brazil or Peru!
