Prior to Congress, Mr. Beyer was Ambassador Beyer representing the United States in Switzerland where he was honored by American Citizens Abroad and the State Department for outstanding service to American Citizens overseas.
Earlier on in his political career, Beyer served two terms as lieutenant governor of Virginia.
In the industry, he chaired the American International Auto Dealers Association in 2006 and was honored with the Time Quality Dealer Award in 1991.
