Julio Saiz. Founder & CEO.

Some people might say I am a car collector, but I prefer to describe myself as a driver who gets emotionally attached to his cars. I still own my very first car, an Alfa Romeo 147, which I bought with a bank loan in my early 20s. My classic is a 1977 308 GTB and my young timer is a Honda S2000. I am computer science engineer with circa 25 years’ experience, 3 years ago, I decided to merge my IT knowledge with my passion for driving and founded The Motor Chain. My mission is the preservation of classic vehicles. We want them on the road, driven with health and safety. Follow me on IG @juliosaiztmc

Matthew Kenigstein. Business Development

Growing up, I amassed a collection of Hot Wheels, Matchbox Cars and models. I grew up listening to stories of my father’s first car…a Ford Gran Torino he purchased as a recent immigrant to the USA. I couldn’t keep my eyes off 007’s Aston Martin on TV and watched the most impressive 70s muscle cars lined up at the train station car shows by my hometown. Those images and my appreciation for cars has never ended. Today, I have the pleasure of seeing those childhood fascinations come to life and live in The Motor Chain. I’ve spent my career combining the best elements of people and technology, working as an IT and HR executive in the consulting industry and for world class organizations. My passion for innovation led me to TMC, where I’ve had the privilege of introducing a new way of documenting classic history and a new award recognizing it to be debuted at the ZCCA.

Alejandro Cabral. CTO

If I were a part on TMC’s engine, I would surely be the block. If I were a car I would be a first generation Mustang (1973 and before), pure steel and power, not very subtle, but reliable.
I may be the least petrolhead of the team, but I vibrate with each release and new new feature.
