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!
I am a student of the car business and absolutely love it. With a passion for serving our guests and an equal passion for our product, I am happy to look after your automotive needs. Please see our wonderful team in action. Drop by and visit the store!
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
I enjoy walking trail by Englishman River Falls. I have 4 Grand children and love spending time with them! This year my husband and I bought a camper and have been enjoying camping trips all summer long! I am passionate for hockey and enjoy watching it on TV. Reading and playing Sudoku are just a couple of my favorite past time.
I have been working with cars for years and love it!
I have been in Parksville for my entire life. You just can't beat what this beautiful place has to offer! Where are you going to get a view of the ocean and the mountains all in one? I am currently enrolled at Vancouver Island University and plan on graduating with a degree in Human Resource Management. I have always been interested in cars and in July of 2013 I was lucky enough to get my foot in the door here at Joe Cunningham Ford and have enjoyed every minute of it! I look forward to being here for years to come and am excited to meet tons of new people.
I moved from Port Alberni to Parksville in 1974 and
graduated from Ballenas Secondary School in 1979. I was employed in Parksville from
1980 to 2000 in the Hospitality Industry working with the Island Hall Beach
Resort. After the hospitality industry I chose to start a new career in sales.
My first sales job was at Mackay's home electronics where I spent the next 13
years. In 2014 I changed my career path and joined the Sales Team at Joe
Cunningham Ford. I have thoroughly enjoyed the transition and look forward to
the years ahead. I invite all my friends old and new to stop by for a cup of
coffee and visit me, whether you're looking to shop or just say hello!
I fell in love with Vancouver Island years ago when I worked in broadcasting here in the 1990's. When the opportunity came for me my wife Samantha and our daughter Charlie to move here and once again work with Everett Einarson and the team at Joe Cunningham Ford, we jumped at it.
I'm a recently transplanted "prairie boy" from Winnipeg, and I am loving it here! I am also an avid finger style guitar player. I enjoy cycling and inline skating. I enjoy meeting and talking to people so this is a dream job!
I started in the automotive industry in 1999 as a Sales Consultant for a Used Car Dealership. Throughout the years I have grown with the Ford family, as a Sales Administrator, an Appointment Coordinator, Service Advisor, Body Shop Administrator, Collision Estimator. I joined Joe Cunningham Ford in 2008 as a Service Advisor and am currently the assistant Service Manager and Senior Service Advisor.
I started in the automotive industry as an appointment coordinator 4 years ago right here at Joe Cunningham Ford. I moved on to become part of our accounting team, and recently have come back to the service side of the dealership and am now a service advisor!
Do you need to hear a joke or just have a bright conversation with a warm smile? Jess' positivity and enthusiasm are infectious, and nothing brightens her day like sharing a laugh and spreading smiles!
I've been with Joe Cunningham Ford for over 30 years. My interests are fly fishing, camping and basically anything outdoors.
