About Philip Richter

The Turtle Garage is dedicated to my love of excessive personal transportation.

I have enjoyed all things motorized for as long as I can remember, from riding and tinkering with my first Honda 50 at age seven to restoring pre-war BMW motorcycles today. I don’t always go for the most powerful or expensive vehicle. I like cars and motorcycles with interesting stories—about their design, production, ownership, or place in history.

I am President and co-founder of New York-based Hollow Brook Wealth Management, LLC. Hollow Brook is a leading independent wealth management firm that manages and advises capital on behalf of families, foundations, endowments, pension plans, and individuals. I serve as Treasurer of the United States Equestrian Team Foundation and Chairman of the Lake Placid Horse Show. I also sit on the board of directors of the Hampton Classic Horse Show, the United States Equestrian Federation and WidePoint Corporation (WYY), a NYSE MKT-listed provider of managed mobility services, telecom lifecycle management, and cybersecurity solutions. I am also on the board of the Pray Family Foundation which is dedicated to helping children realize their potential. I sit on the advisory board of The Car Hub, a resource that endeavors to serve and preserve the collector car community. I am an amateur equestrian show jumper and have successfully campaigned my horses on the “A” circuit for over three decades. I periodically write articles for Sports Car Market magazine and am an active classic car and vintage motorcycle collector.

The Turtle Garage Story: How It All Began
Leaving to marry the love of my life, Sarah Willeman, on June 16th, 2012 in my 1990 Porsche Carerra 4. There is nothing like arriving at your own wedding in an air-cooled Porsche 911.

The air-cooled Porsche 911 is perhaps the ultimate modern classic.

Some photos of my life over the decades:
