  • Patrick Day
    General Manager

    Santa Fe BMW and MINI are excited and proud to welcome Patrick Day to their team as the new General Manager. Patrick has come to Santa Fe with a background in Fixed Operations and was the Fixed Operations Director at San Francisco BMW and MINI for 11 years.  He has substantial experience in the service department allowing him to be particularly sensitive to the quality of service his team is providing for customers. Patrick says that he is enjoying Santa Fe BMW and MINI's positivity, enthusiasm about the brands, and their commitment to creating a premium experience for customers. He is very excited to continue working in the automotive industry and to be a member of the Santa Fe team, "I see massive advancements in technology in the pipeline and look forward to seeing how it will impact human mobility," says Patrick.

    Outside of work Patrick spends time with his wife, Hannah, and their two daughters, Petra (4) and Paloma (5). They

    draw unicorns, princesses and queens and watch shows with the same three subjects. He also enjoys woodworking,

    laughing and mountain biking. Lastly, his favorite car is the BMW X6 because it has an unapologetic identity and while

    he doesn't currently own one he plans to in the future.
