Our family moved to the Parksville-Qualicum Beach area in the spring of 2013. Living in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba, I used to call 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. In 2015, I graduated with honours from the National Automotive Dealer Academy in MacLean Virginia. Over the years our family would often come to 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!
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.
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 have been in the automotive industry since 2003, starting as a Finance & Sales Consultant with Harley-Davidson, then later worked in sales at a Cadillac-Buick-GMC dealership and now in Sales with Ford of Parksville. It is a great career where you can meet people from all walks of life and I just love it.
I am very happily married to gorgeous Samantha and we have a beautiful three year old daughter named Charlie. We also have two dogs, Pepper & Trapper.
My favorite part of the job - is meeting new people and getting to know each of their individual stories. We all have a story, it's those stories that bind us together.
To me every job is about 'people'. I love working for Everett & Ann Marie, because they believe in people first.
My name is Krystian
Watts and I am a Sales Consultant here at Family Ford in Parksville. I am
locally born and raised, and I graduated from Ballenas Secondary. My first
sales job was selling cell phones for Bell Mobility in Nanaimo BC. I have a
screaming passion for writing and producing music as well as playing shows on
the side. I recently decided to take a dip into the world of car sales and I am
very proud to be a part of the family here at Family Ford. I look forward to
working with you and your vehicle needs in the near future.
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!
I've been with Joe Cunningham Ford for over 30 years. My interests are fly fishing, camping and basically anything outdoors.
