  • 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

    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.
