Eddie Sawyer | General Manager

I'm a lifelong automotive enthusiast, who got into cars at a young age through my dad. He would take our family to the Hot August Nights Car Show in Reno, Nevada. I didn't know makes or models at the time, but seeing so many custom paint jobs, cool interiors, shiny wheels, and hearing engines rev left a lifelong impression on me.

Fast forward to my college years at Loyola Marymount University, I was fortunate enough to experience the best of SoCal car culture. From Cars & Coffee in the Valley, to nights on Sunset Blvd, to the LA Auto Show, there was always something hot on the road that caught my eye. I was inspired to get into car design. The first car I designed was a W221 S-Class, lowered with a Nogaro Blue paint job, custom body kit, and wheels.

I went on to found an aftermarket parts distribution startup and worked my way into dealership management positions. The very first car I sold was an AMG GT. I launched Players Club Wheels in 2020 to fulfill the need of quality customer service in the automotive industry.
