kurt millard

RPM Northwest Master Technician and Shop Foreman Kurt Millard

MASTER TECHNICIAN & SHOP FOREMAN

A storied powersports enthusiast, Kurt brings decades of knowledge and experience to his craft. This Northwest native can tell you the ins and outs of every dune and cut through snowy passes with the best of them. His skill on a snowmobile and reliable knowledge make him a go-to resource each winter for Washington State Parks Service. 

nick akerill

RPM Northwest and RPM Motors & Sales Manager Nick Akerill

SALES & SERVICE MANAGER

A consummate outdoorsman and racing enthusiast, Nick brings expertise and optimism to everything he does -- important for someone who dually manages RPM Northwest and its sister company RPM Motors & Sales. His uncanny ability to easily match customers with cars is only the second coolest thing about him; the first is a toss-up between his fishing record and his pastime of raising sugar gliders.  

bob schimic

RPM Northwest Master Technician Bob Shimic, lead exhaust customization and fabrication

MASTER TECHNICIAN

This Wyoming native came down to share his superior fabrication skills with us as our premier expert on all things exhaust. When he's not customizing downpipes for your rig, you'll find this smooth operator (aka Bouncer Bob) working on one of his nine motorcycles. His Harley Ironhead is the ride of choice at the moment (a sportster so named because of the iron cylinder heads, duh), which occasionally loses out to his Fat Boy Softail. 

damien peach

LEAD TECHNICIAN

When Damien's not working, he's ... working. This die-hard perfectionist is best known for his meticulous work as an auto detailer, but he can upgrade a topend with the best of them. Native to the Vancouver area, this proud dad brings a background in soccer, classic rock and roll, and mobbing on jet skis. 

logan frahm

TECHNICIAN

Heralding all the way from Battle Ground, Logan brings tenacity and passion to his craft, as evidenced by his singularly unique and badass ride, a '99 E350 7.3 Powerstroke van with a 4WD conversion that he fabbed and built up solo. The van came to him compliments of his uncle at Oregon's Gambler 500... After all, any beater that can withstand 500 (mostly) off-road miles is sure to bring on love at first sight. 

matt blewett

RPM Northwest Technician Matt Blewett

TECHNICIAN

A Portland boy originally, Matt made his way to the East Coast and back, picking up some notoriety as an MX force along the way. This dirtbike enthusiast made his name known via Nevada's VCGrandPrix, an annual enduro circuit that tackles mountain-winding single-track, salt flats, and downtown riding stages. Desert racing is still his favorite pastime, especially when he's rallying on his cherry Honda XR650R. 

behind the scenes

chelsea pierce

RPM Northwest's Chelsea Pierce is Inventory Queen

PARTS & SERVICE MANAGER

Don't be fooled by this tiny adorable parts queen -- she can talk circles around any supplier and distributor. Decades of industry experience make her an inventory wizard, not to mention remarkably organized with Rain Man-esque math abilities. If that's not enough to garner respect, look into her past as a national benchpress recordholder or try to keep up with her on a hike. 

luiz delgado

RPM Northwest Diesel Repair and Performance Lead Detailer Luiz Delgado

LEAD DETAILER

Calling Washington home for almost 20 years, Luiz is known for his meticulous detailing skills, which came after his career path in welding took a cleaner trajectory. When he's not making your ride look absolutely pristine, you can find this family man behind a grill perfecting his signature tri-tip roast or putting the ideal sear on his expertly marinated carne asada. 

wyatt coiteux

RPM Northwest Snowsports Director Wyatt Coiteux

RPM SNOWSPORTS DIRECTOR

Sure, he's got killer genes, but this LaCenter HS teen has superior mechanical understanding and a keen business savvy that is all his own. His niche passion: snowbikes. Already an expert on all conversion kits and a Camso enthusiast, talk to this boy wonder about your winter riding options.  

Watch for him taking on his old man Sean Coiteux at a track day near you!

tiffany meade

allison king

Allison King does marketing for RPM Northwest in Ridgefield

COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR

With a background that's equal parts journalism and soccer, this Vancouver native also had the extreme privilege or growing up in household of talented gearhead brothers. She developed a love of all things big and fast via osmosis and fuels that passion with website builds, corporate strategy and branding, and marketing outreach for RPM Northwest and its subsidiaries

our favorite shops

Places we like and frequently use: Tom's Performance, Wheel World, ProCaliber Motorsports. These local cats have never let us down with exemplary service and a rad selection of whatever we're after. (Fun fact: ProCaliber and Tom's were two of Sean's very first jobs as a wide-eyed teen just wanting to learn how to ride with the big boys!)
