  • Ann Marie Clark
    Owner/Leader

    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 as Family Ford and be apart of this amazing family.

  • Everett Einarson
    Operations Leader



    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!

  • 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 a Vancouver Island University graduate with a dual concentration in Human Resource Management and Management.  I have always been interested in cars and in July of 2013 I was lucky to step foot in the doors here at Family 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, and getting to know them to ensure they have the best experience possible when dealing with myself and Family Ford.

  • Dennis Paquette
    Sales Consultant

    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 Family Ford here in Parksville. It is a great career where you can meet people from all walks of life and I just love it.

    We all have a story, it's those stories that bind us together. I also try to have some fun, every day.

    I love working with Everett, Dale & Ann Marie, because they believe in people first.
