W&HM PR Relay: Peter Mullin Named Man of the Year

Press Release from:



Peter Mullin: Automobile Magazine's 2015 Man of the Year
The Petersen Automotive Museum's Chairman of the Board Recognized
With Prestigious Industry Honor.


Los Angeles, Calif. (December 1, 2014) Automobile Magazine recently named Peter Mullin its 2015 Man Of The Year. As Chairman of the Board of both The Petersen Automotive Museum and Mullin Automotive Museum, Peter Mullin is devoted to preserving automotive history. He is also the driving force behind the $125 million transformation of The Petersen Automotive Museum, a decisive factor behind his most recent honor.
"We choose our Man of Year in conjunction with Automobile's All Stars testing every fall," said Contributing Editor Ronald Ahrens. "This year's award recognizes the person who did the most to advance automotive design. Peter Mullin's visionary leadership of The Petersen Automotive Museum and contributions to Art Center College of Design made him our choice."
"I was pleasantly surprised to receive this award," Peter Mullin commented. "Between the Art Center expansion, The Petersen remodeling project, the Art Of Bugatti exhibit at The Mullin Automotive Museum, and the Automobile Magazine honor, 2014 has been an incredibly memorable year."
Peter Mullin's love of cars began early in life, and this passion manifested itself in an appreciation for pre-war French Art Deco cars. He currently owns a large Bugatti collection, which includes a beautiful Type 57SC Atlantic. The Mullin Automotive Museum, which celebrates French Art Deco style, also houses a large collection of Avions Voisin vehicles. Mullin campaigns some of these vehicles in vintage races.
Philanthropically, Peter Mullin recently donated $15 million to the Art Center College of Design, that institution's largest-ever single gift. His leadership in re-imagining The Petersen Automotive Museum includes housing a satellite Art Center campus at the new museum, which will have 22 galleries to interactively entertain and educate museum-goers. The Petersen will re-open in December 2015 as one of the world's truly great automotive museums  — another crowning achievement for Peter Mullin.
