A legend and pioneer in the luxury automotive and aircraft industry, RD Whittington is the go-to car broker for many of today’s hottest A-list celebrities from: Jamie Foxx (a close friend), Marshmello, Floyd Mayweather, Travis Barker, Scott Disick and many more- friends and client’s of Whittington sometimes joke around that his Rolodex is like the Forbes list.
His name is synonymous with everything luxury and making his client’s dreams a reality is a priority for this rising business mogul. From extravagant custom built automobiles, rare cars to high flying jets and yachts, Whittington scours the earth to find the best deals and bring them to his clients.
Despite keeping a low profile for many years, the media is very interested in learning more about this businessman.
Other than making a brief appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show in which Anthony Anderson discusses RD’s 2015 La Ferrari which was mistaken by Kimmel for a Lamborghini on the show; he is in the Guinness book of records for locating the deepest geothermal hot spring in the world.
However, very few know about the charitable side of Whittington and his love of giving back to the community and helping others. Filings show he is an active philanthropist but never seeks attention for his giving.
Whittingon focuses a lot of his time on giving back in partnership with other charities some of which include the LA Shriner’s Children’s Hospital and My Friend’s House.
Even though he spends a lot of time with high profile clients, one of Whittington’s favourite people is Sebastian, age 9, who is a partner in helping him deliver toys to the LA Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. Recently, instead of throwing a birthday party, Sebastian decided to host a toy drive which showcases his heart and desire to give. The kids receive joy and are excited when they see RD’s canary yellow La-Ferrari in the parking lot.
“No matter how my day goes, spending time with the kids and seeing them smile brings me gratitude and puts things in perspective. I prioritize giving because my mantra is, the more you give the more you will receive and I know for some people that are in tough circumstances, it is difficult to understand that concept, but believe me- things always work out in the end” -Whittington mentions.
“Being apart of My Friend’s house is another organization which is near and dear to my heart. We spend time feeding the homeless and needy in impoverished parts of Los Angeles; there was a time where I rented an In-N-Out and went around LA feeding the homeless and help supplied resources to support the charity so they could continue to feed more individuals and impact more lives.”
Many prominent individuals like Bill Gates, Larry Fink of Blackrock and many others have been vocal about using their wealth to make a positive difference in the lives of others in different parts of the world.
Whittington mentions, “My entire life is based around customer service and I make it a priority to add that personal touch to every interaction and business deal. The most important part of my life is making every person I come across and spend time with special. I make it a priority to make people smile because even if it’s for a few moments- I know that person will be happy. “
He also says, “Wealth is just a tool for me to continue doing good and impacting lives in a positive manner. People won’t remember how much money I made or my luxury car collection, but they’ll remember how I made them feel. I strive to go above and beyond for my clients, friends, family and help them succeed; cars happen to be the vehicle that allows me to make that positive impact.”
Doing good is the only way to continue moving society forward. Progress is made by reinvesting back into charitable causes and helping others so they can also be in a position to make a difference in the lives of others in the world.
“When it’s all said and done, my legacy won’t be the amount of money I made or my car collection but it will be based on the amount of people I helped.”- RD Whittington
