“I knew it would be mine.” Those were the words Rick Champagne used when asked about the purchase of original batmobile from George Barris at the Barrett-Jackson auction.

Rick began his career in the transportation industry in 1977 as a commissioned salesperson for a Mayflower Van Lines agent in New Hampshire, primarily selling household relocation services. He quickly grew to become one of Mayflower´s top sales producers in the country. In 1989, he decided to relocate to a warmer climate, and joined Atlantic North American in their Phoenix, Arizona branch. While working at Atlantic, he expanded his experience to include High Value Products distribution activity.

Rick Champagne is president of logistics company Champagne Logistics. No word was given how his new roll as Batman would affect his day job.
