Brent Godwin

Service Manager

Brent Godwin

Brent has an impressive career with Harley-Davidson® that began right out of High School as an entry-level technician. He quickly rose through the ranks and went on to work at several factory authorized dealerships and one aftermarket shop along the way. Having performed nearly all roles a dealership has to offer and every phase of Service Operations, Brent left the dealer network in 1995 to become an instructor for MMI where he taught the Harley-Davidson® late model and specialty courses for entry-level techs, antique restoration, engine rebuild & performance and factory PHD classes for dealership technicians. Catching the eye of Harley-Davidson® University in Milwaukee, he was offered a position at HDU as a technical trainer and curriculum developer in 1997. In the course of the next thirteen years Brent moved from HDU, to engineering and several managerial roles throughout the Quality, Reliability and Technical Service Division of Harley-Davidson®. Brent joined us here at St. Paul Harley-Davidson in 2010.
