Kathy Chandler, Northern California
I’m a Territory Manager with Hagerty, helping to provide drivers with classic car insurance in Northern California. A Bay Area native, I’ve always had a curiosity for the collectable. I started in visual art, graduating from San Francisco State University with a degree in art history. Following graduation, I began working for Bonhams Auctioneers in California where I furthered my education and gained experience dealing in fine art and antiques. I also assisted in all major motorcar auctions on the west coast, and that market is now my primary focus. While working in the sales department here at Hagerty, I have been fortunate enough to continuously enrich my knowledge about classic automobiles, which I have the pleasure of being around every day. I have passed that keen eye to my five-year old son Oliver, who already has his heart set on a 1963 split window.
What is unique about the hobby in your territory?
The growing interest of youth in the hobby is strong in Northern California. Newer Clubs focusing on modern classic era vehicles are hosting podcasts, cars and coffees and various types of hobby related events.
And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."– Ayrton Senna
Why Hagerty? What excites you about what we do?
Our clients. Learning about the history of a classic car or collection and the hard work that was put into the vehicle or the number of years it's been in the family is something very special.
