Becky Babcox

The late Becky Babcox (1952-2012) was a longtime aftermarket industry veteran, having been co-owner of Babcox Media, along with her brother, Bill Babcox, current CEO. They were the third generation of the Babcox family to run the company founded by their grandfather, Edward S. Babcox, in 1920. Becky retired from the company in 2006, after nearly 30 years in the business. She was named Woman of the Year by the Car Care Council Women’s Board that same year.

In addition to serving as corporate secretary of Babcox, Becky was the publisher of Automotive Rebuilder magazine, known today as Engine Builder magazine. She was an active participant in the rebuilding industry, serving as a board member of the Production Engine Remanufacturers Association and numerous other aftermarket associations.

Becky was well-known and respected for her contributions to the industry and was an active supporter of the Women’s Board scholarship program. After her passing in 2012, the Women’s Board also announced that in honor of her dedication and as a founding member of the board, the top scholarship would be named the Becky Babcox Women’s Board scholarship.
