Dennis Little

Beverly and Dennis Little run the Santa Fe Concorso that takes place every year in late September at The Club at Las Campanas in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  It is an annual gathering of the finest automobiles in the world.  When you combine Dennis, a car designer for over 30 years, with Beverly, a professional educator, you get a powerful team.  They are in fact a couple who have been married for 46 years.  And if you think putting on a car gather of this magnitude is an easy task, you are mistaken.  Beverly was a public school educator for over 30 years.  Now retired, she is the Santa Fe Consorso secretary.  Dennis worked at General Motors for 30 years as a designer and he was the Chief Designer of Cadillac Design Studio.  He lead many innovative projects over the yeas with Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Chevrolet, Cadillac and Pininfarina Design.  Dennis is the president of the Santa Fe Concorso.  Over the past four years these two have developed the Santa Fe Concorso in to a top tier event and a concours not to be missed.
