David Madeira

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!
