  • Ann Marie Clark

    I was born and raised in Campbell River.  When asked how long I've been in the car business I say my age plus nine months :-D. After graduation I went to UVIC and received my degree in Biology (I know ? not much use in the car business!!). I attended NADA dealer academy in McLean Virginia and graduated from there with honors. Over the years I've been lucky enough to have had a chance to work in every department at a dealership; from washing vehicles, to being a service advisor, to selling vehicles and working in the administration department. In 1997 I moved to Nanaimo to help with the transition from Meyers Holland to our current Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln and have had the honor to run that dealership and be the leader of the family there since 2001. As of October. 1st, 2012 I have the true honor of continuing Joe Cunningham's legacy here in Parksville and be apart of this amazing family. I'm looking forward to making Joe proud.

    Operations Leader

    Until recently, I have called the prairies home.  I first got into the car business in 1994 in Thompson Manitoba where I spent nine years learning both sales and finance.  In 2003 I moved to Winnipeg where I did finance and sales management and ran a small automotive consulting business.  Over the years our family would often visit Vancouver Island visiting friends and family and spending time everywhere from Victoria, to Pender Island, to Tofino. When I met with Ann Marie and her Leadership Team I knew that this was a group that shared the same vision and values as I did.  I feel very lucky to be a car enthusiast in the car business in the most picturesque spot in Canada!

  • Shawn Hildebrandt
    Finance Leader

    Greetings and thanks for taking the time to read my BIO!

    My name is Shawn Hildebrandt and I have been associated with this Dealer Group since 2007.

     I am now experiencing the exciting world of Finance and Insurance. As the Finance Leader, I am happy to have a cup of coffee and share all the different financial options.

    On a personal note, I'm happily married to my Hot Wife Krista of 20 yrs and a Daddy to two awesome girls. I have traveled internationally as a comedian/magician and never would have guessed that I'd be in the car business!!! But I came to realize that I'm not in the car business, I am in the "people business". It just so happens that I share and promote transportation to nice people who need to get from point A to B.

    When it comes down to it, I believe that the car buying experience should be a stress free, exciting and informative journey with lots of laughter and smiles. If you agree with me then I would love to be your financial advisor for your automotive needs

     Respectfully yours, Shawn

  • Mike Anstis
    Sales Consultant

    My name is Mike Anstis!

    I grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, (Go Riders!) and spent a few years moving around both Canada and the United States, settling in Parksville early 2014. I enjoy being on and in the water, I spend my summer months sailing, fishing and scuba diving. I enjoy playing a wide variety of musical instruments including my all-time favourite, the great highland bagpipe! I also took a leatherworking and shoe making apprenticeship in Oregon and like working with my hands as well as my mind. When I first began my working career I was employed as a high-rise window cleaner, needless to say my body is grateful for the respite of my newly found job in the people business at Joe Cunningham Ford.

    I'm looking forward to the opportunity of meeting all you fine residents of Parksville, stop by for a coffee and a chat anytime!
