Our Story

Original Executive Coachbuilders Advetisement featuring a Lincoln Executive 540 Limousine

For over 40 years Executive Coach Builders has been your premier luxury limousine and bus builder. Established in 1976 by John Bumgarner, by 1986 ECB was producing more than 400 limousines a year in an onsite facility in Springfield MO.  Roger Farris took over ownership in 1981 and expanded the operation throughout the early '80s. In an article published by LCT magazine in 1986, Farris explained that he approached the Limousine business first as a consumer. Having purchased ECB from Bumgarner, he was drawn into conversation about buying the company after purchasing a limousine himself. He explained that he was drawn to ECB because of their distinct quality. Originally specializing in just two limousines, Executive Coach has since expanded its product offering to more than 25 different vehicles and custom modifications.

David Bakare, the current owner, took over operation of ECB in 1993 and has since expanded Executive Coach to be the Premier Luxury Limousine and Bus Builder for the United States and abroad!
