About Kirt Prete
Hello and Thank you for visiting our Website! A lot my story is on our About Us page, if you are interested have a look! The years go by quickly here at PineRidge and it continues to be fun and challenging to watch the business grow. For myself I often talk about “living the dream”, because as a young boy I dreamed of driving new Fords, which I get to do every day! My wife says I have an addiction to cars and she is probably right. My favorite vehicle is the one that I am driving that day, however the AC Cobra, Mustang and F150 have a special place in my heart. Even with my car addiction my wife and kids are number one in my books! Any chance I can get to spend with them whether it is at home, on a trip, at the lake, on a mountain, on a bleacher, in a garage, on a course, on a court I will do whatever I can to make sure that I am there.
About Kevin Chapman
About Michelle Forbes
I moved to Meadow Lake from Sydney, Cape Breton Island in the spring of 2003 because my fiancé (at the time) was offered a job in the Technology Department at the Northwest School Division. I started working at PineRidge in August 2003 in a temporary Receptionist position. Lucky for me it didn’t take long for it to become permanent. After 10 years I was promoted to the Controller position and I still love my job. I love the relationships that I have made with the staff and customers here and I love how involved with the community we are. Since moving here I have gotten married, bought a house and we have two beautiful daughters. As a family we have really started to enjoy travelling. Right now I drive an F-150, which I love, but if I had to choose a dream car it would be a Mustang.
About Bonny Aiken
I have been working at Pineridge Ford since August of 2014. I first started as a detailer cleaning vehicles soon three years passed and I was giving a chance to work as a Receptionist. I have yet to leave that position and plan not to for as long as I can.
I love working with the wonderful staff also building friendships with my coworkers and with all the wonderful customers as well. I love being that cheery voice that most people speak to in the morning and the smiley face that they first see when they walk in. I love that I can be my nerdy self with my casual Friday shirts.
I currently Drive a 2011 Ford Focus but if I could have my dream car. I would get a mustang in Gotta have it Green.
I was born and raised in Meadow Lake so I know quite of few people around the area. I have seen this community grow and flourish for quite a few years. I am currently married going 4 years strong with the love of my life. I own some exotic animals and some cats which I love dearly. I am a bit more nerdy that I let on which evidence can be seen on my desk.
My name is Derek Robertson; I started my career here at PineRidge Ford September 2013. What I enjoy most about working here at PineRidge Ford is meeting so many new faces and
getting the chance to help them find a new vehicle that they want, love and need. I was born and
raised in this beautiful City,Meadow Lake; I don’t know if it’s the abundance of lakes that are only
about an hour away that are keeping me here, or I think there’s something in the drinking water
that has me saying, “Meadow Lake is my early slice of paradise”. Now I know there’s a lot of
people reading this that are saying, “Derek, sounds like you lost your mind”. But, I also know
there are a lot of people that would agree with me too. What you would find me doing on my
spare time would be going to the lake in the summer to swim and in the winter to fish. My friends
are a big part of my life so when I am free I’m usually doing something with my friends, like
camping, lake activities. I’m 21 years old graduated in 2012, I drive a mint 2008 tuxedo black
Ford F-150 Lariat. My favorite vehicle would have to be the Black bombshell F-150 that I’m
I am originally from Livelong SK. My husband and Myself and our 4 children came to the Meadow Lake area in 1995.
I enjoy all outdoors activities, and love fishing. We spend a lot of time at our cabin, with our children and our 4 spoiled dogs.
I came to work at PineRidge Ford in 2016. I have been a Ford Fanatic all my life. I really enjoy working here, meeting new faces and learning something new everyday, as the vehicles and technology are always changing. The staff here at PineRidge are very friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand, thus making here a great place to work.
I love all Ford vehicles, but I would have to say my favorites are the 67 Mustang and the 1979 Ford F150.
I started working at PineRidge Ford in 2013 in the service department. Since then I have worked in the finance department and now manage the Business Development Centre. I enjoy the wonderful customers and coworkers that I have the privilege of working with. I have a Bachelors of Commerce from the University of Saskatchewan. I grew up outside of Saskatoon and moved to Meadow Lake for the job opportunity at PineRidge Ford. I am a barbecue fanatic, if it will fit on the grille I will cook it, barbecuing is a year round event at my house. I have been married since 2003 I have two sons and a daughter that attend three of the schools in Meadow Lake.
Born and raised in Meadow Lake, I joined the PineRidge Team in January 2009 after deciding to make a career change from the banking world to the automotive industry. My position as Financial Services Manager allows me to still iterate my love of banking along with fantastic conversations with long time and new dealership customers.
A majority of my time away from work is spent outdoors as I have two babies, a three year old son and a six year old black lab, both whom are very demanding bosses.…more so than Kirt. LOL
Currently I drive an Edge which is an absolute dream of a vehicle.
