Founders

The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance is the creation of two Atlanta car enthusiasts, Harry Krix and Bill Wallet.  Lifelong friends and business associates, we joined together almost five years ago to realize our dream of producing a major classic automobile show for the Atlanta community.  Several attempts have been made by others to do just that, but those efforts have never come close to our vision.  Our goal is to create The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance and join the ranks of the premier east and west coast concourses.

During his tenure with the Amelia Island Concourse d’Elegance, Harry Krix worked directly under the guidance of Bill Warner, the father of the modern American Concours. The unique set of skills he learned during that time have proven invaluable in the development of the inaugural Atlanta Concours d’Elegance accelerating our event to a level of excellence consistent with our goal.

Our approach to financing, organizing and maintaining  quality control are very different from other events.  We view our sponsors as long term partners, we select our advisors and team directors based upon skill set, and we contracted with an award winning destination resort hotel to host The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance.  

Our goal is to entertain you with an exciting, unique, high-end classic automobile exposition that dazzles your senses and surpasses your expectations.

The Atlanta Concourse d’Elegance is not affiliated with any other car show.
