Vice President Nominee

Subject: Travis Mjolsnes Nomination for Vice PresidentDate: December 4th, 2018


The opportunity to serve the members of the North Star BMW Club is one that truly excites me as a way of giving back to a club that has given me so much over the years. The club was the gateway for me to start racing over 25 years ago and learning about how to safely handle a performance vehicle. The club also allowed me to make many great friends over the years that shared my passion for BMW’s old and new. Those friendships empowered me to start working on my own cars and as the passion grew so did my desire to learn more about BMW’s.

In my professional career I was very fortunate to make many great friends at BMW NA along with being a guest many times of BMW at the Spartanburg and Thermal Springs Performance centers to experience the newest technology. I have led commercial and operational teams which has taught me patience and exceptional listening skills when working through challenging situations or making strategic decisions.

Along with managing a P&L and exceeding organization goals I truly enjoy developing my team members to be the best they can be. I am also very lucky that I fell in love with BMW’s in high school and my first car was a well-used e30 M3 with 130,000 miles on it which I purchased in 1995 for $4500…wish I had purchased ten more. I still have my original e30 M3 with over 280,000 miles on it and have been able to develop the car as my racing skills grew to where it is now a DTM replica. I regularly race at BIR and Road America along with having been fortunate enough to be selected to compete in the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in 2016 celebrating the 100th anniversary of BMW.

My goals for the vice president role would be to continue to stoke the passion of all BMW enthusiasts from the first-time buyer to the veterans of the club we need to continue to be open to all members. We have a fantastic club however we can always push ourselves to get better or try new things while not forgetting our past and what has made us such a great organization.

Thank you for your consideration as Vice President North Star BMW Club
