Chief Judge

Chief Judge Chris Bock
Nevada City, California

Chris Bock has served as our Chief Judge since 2013. He attended his first Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance back in 1963 at the young age of 18, he was first appointed a Class Judge a decade later, and he continued to serve among our Judges over the ensuing decades, often acting as Chief Class Judge for American Classics.

Mr. Bock is also on our Concours Selection Committee, a group of about a dozen experts who choose the cars that are invited to participate in this event, and he plays key roles in overseeing field and ramp operations on Concours Sunday, making certain that all runs smoothly. He has been an entrant on five occasions—often showing Packards, a marque to which he is devoted.

Apart from the Concours, Mr. Bock has also served as President and National Head Judge of the Classic Car Club of America and as editor of The Cormorant for The Packard Club. He is a retired real estate broker and a foster parent.
