Cailean Wood Named General Manager at Advantage Ford

Third Generation Car Dealer Follows in the Family Footsteps

CALGARY, Alberta, May 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wood Automotive Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Cailean Wood as General Manager, Advantage Ford, Calgary. Most recently Cailean served as Sales Manager at Big 4 Motors, the group’s Chrysler/Jeep dealership.

“As a young teenager I washed cars and pulled weeds at Okotoks Ford,” says Cailean.  “It’s an honour for me to follow my grandfather James, my father Gerry and my brother Rory as a dealership general manager and Advantage Ford is the perfect place.”  The dealership just celebrated its 23rd anniversary and recently completed a major renovation adding more showroom space, more service bays and a new drive through service centre offering no appointment oil changes. 

Cailean has been with the Wood Automotive Group full time since 2011.  He was the general manager at All Makes Collision Centre and then oversaw the opening and served as general manager at Driverz Auto, the company’s pre-owned vehicle specialty store.  Following that, he held sales manager positions at Big 4 and Advantage. 

Cailean holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree specializing in marketing and management from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia followed by post-graduate studies at the National Automobile Dealers Association.

“Advantage Ford is a performance vehicle specialist and we have one of Alberta’s best selections of Mustang GTs and F-150 Raptors,” says Cailean. “Along with our other Ford vehicles like the Escape, Focus and Explorer you might say we’re built for comfort and affordability but with a need for speed.”
