About Us

imgRyan Schultz’s love of cars started at a young age, thanks to the influence from his grandfather and father back in his home state of Ohio. In 2003, Ryan’s father Gary purchased a BMW 530i, and thus began his love for BMW and the E39 platform. In 2010, Ryan acquired his 2000 Silverstone M5 - his first car.  Unable to afford costly dealership service, he quickly realized he needed to be able to perform his own service and restoration work.  After earning his Business Management degree from Kent State University in 2016, he fulfilled his life-long dream of moving to San Diego to immerse himself in Southern-California car culture and establish E39Source as a brick-and-mortar operation dedicated to exceptional BMW service.  He is an active member in the BMW CCA and serves on the Board of Directors for the San Diego Region of the Ferrari Owners Club. Ryan’s pursuit of perfection and inordinately high attention to detail has become the very backbone of what E39Source is today.
Gary Schultz is a co-owner of E39Source and has been a car enthusiast since childhood. His love of cars was passed down from his father who enjoyed working on his American-made vehicles.  Gary grew up near Akron, Ohio and has a BA degree in Economics from Kent State University.  After graduating he worked for Progressive Corporation headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio as an IT Operations Manager.  After nearly 30 years at Progressive Gary decided to move to a better climate and lifestyle in Southern California where he worked for HP in Rancho Bernardo for 10 years before expanding E39Source, LLC in Escondido with Ryan in 2019. Gary owns two BMW M5s, a manual-converted E60 and an F10 as well as a Ferrari 355 F1 Spider. Both Gary and Ryan are active participants in the San Diego chapter of the Ferrari Owner Club where they sit on the Board of Directors and assist in event planning and club operations.img
