Meet the Team
Our passion is what makes the difference.
It's now over 15 years since we started creating our own products and today we have an extended Bowden family, that is made up from passionate people that share our vision – Helping people care for their cars with an Australian car care range they can trust.
If you need to contact us on anything about the car care, or our cars, this is the devoted team you will be talking with from our shed. Please feel free to make contact via email, a phone call or ask a question on our busy social media pages.
Car Nutter and Founder
Dan is the elder of the two brothers and the resident perfectionist. Proudly pedantic, he loves spending hours testing and evaluating all the different car care products our chemists make for us. Dan prides himself on the presentation of the cars, a true perfectionist Virgo, he likes them to be immaculate. In a nutshell, Dan is our Quality Control man for everything that goes on here.
Dan is also our resident 'technophile', so any queries regarding the cars or any of the car care are forwarded to him. When he is not in the shed, Dan's usually seen cruising around in his much loved 1964 Falcon Sprint, surfing, mt biking, cleaning his Yeti bike, or at the track in one of the collections different cars.

Operations Manager and Head Ass Kicker.
Everything gets done at Bowden's Own thanks to Rachel, master of all areas in the office, and bringer of the big hammer when things need to be fixed! A rare one in our shed, as she is not that much of a car person, but we have been working hard on that over the last year and are now noticing some recent positive changes, where she came to her first big car show and really enjoyed it!

Customer Service and Car Fanatic.
Coming from a great family of fanatical rev heads, Reeana is a very natural fit for Bowden's Own. She is Rachel's girl Friday, helping everywhere throughout the business with her awesome ability for pouncing directly onto any new issues, fast! When she's not in our shed, you'll always see her at car shows, VW and classic car cruises and our many different car events.

Orders and great Customer Service
We first met Kirsty at a local car event where she wanted to learn more on detailing her car. Not afraid of hard work, Kirsty looks after the packing of the mega orders and making sure they get out on time. In her spare time she will frequent a few car shows, be fixing up her own cars, but her biggest passion is the agility trials with her much loved and super winning Aussie cattle dog Royal.

Shows and Events
Casey is the girl you will be seeing at many of big car shows and events we attend. Our chirpy Torana lover has great product knowledge due to many years of first hand use and helping test and develop our range. She has spent a lot of time in the back seats of our race cars... which is thanks to her skinny physique, meaning she is the only one that can navigate the roll bars well enough to be able to get in and clean there!
