After 5 years on the financial side of the auto industry followed by another 4 years in the management and sales side with Ford Dealerships on the prairies, I relocated back to Vancouver Island with my wife and 3 young sons. After a time as an entrepreneur, I moved back into the financial industry with the Credit Union system in lending and as a Branch Manager. This led to 11 years as the Mortgage and Banking Manager on the Island with a major Canadian investment firm. The job involved providing lending/banking training to a large advisor team and guiding their clients comfortably through the mortgage process. After retirement in 2013 I worked occasionally part time and found myself being bored. It occurred to me that I had enjoyed the auto industry immensely, have always enjoyed helping people, and was looking for another challenge. When the opportunity came up to work here at Family Ford with a great group of people I jumped at the chance! We have a great inventory of quality vehicles and work hard to treat customers respectfully as if they were our guests in our home.
For those of you who don't know me I have lived here for over 20 years. During this time I've been active variously with Qualicum Beach Fire Department, the Castaways Fly Fishing Club, as well as other local organizations. I invite all my friends and neighbours to stop in for a coffee and see what we have to offer!
