Amy Hahn Beck
Amy grew up in a car-loving home and innately developed an appreciation for the role that a car plays in a person’s life. Given the automotive passion of her family, she’s gotten to ride in lots of different types of cars herself, but also saw how a car always had a story. Whether it was someone’s first car or last car, whether it was a car that was sold for a new chapter of life to start or a chapter to end, she felt honored to watch how these stories were carried through families.
Her earliest memories of cars are tied to the way they smell. When her dad would come home smelling like fuel and paint, she’d immediately travel back to those sweet memories, which makes stewarding the company even sweeter. In Amy’s free time, she volunteers at car events in Pittsburgh because, “That’s what car people do.” As she moves forward into the future, she continues to uphold the standard set by her father and looks forward to blazing a new path for Hahn Auto Restoration.
