Brian Chapman , the owner of Chapman Auto Glass Inc. was born and raised on a farm in northern Iowa, where his family farmed and raised cattle.
After graduation Brian attended college in Ankeny, Iowa before enlisting in the Air Force where he served as a helicopter mechanic working on both the H3 and MH53 airframes here at Kirtland AFB. It was during this time that Brian fell in love with New Mexico. After his discharge from the service Brian returned to Iowa, married and soon had a daughter in his life.
Brian entered the glass industry in 1993, working for a small locally owned company in Mason City, Iowa. Always having wanted to return to New Mexico Brian eventually took a job with a nationwide auto glass company in Albuquerque until family issues forced him to once again return to Iowa. Brian continued to work in the glass industry performing a wide variety of duties in several different positions until 2005 at which time he opened Chapman Auto Glass in Des Moines, Iowa.
In September of 2012, still having the desire to return and live in New Mexico, Brian and his wife Susan relocated their home and business to Albuquerque. Brian and Susan have been welcomed back to the area by many people and have loved every minute of their time in their adopted state.
