  • Ariel Huerta
    Sales Consultant

    Ariel was born in Veracruz, Mexico, which is located next to the Gulf of Mexico. Before coming to Henry Curtis, he was working for a garbage company where I worked 80 hours a week. He was able to get his citizenship and that alone opened more opportunities for him and Henry Curtis was one of them. 

     

    He is very passionate about soccer (football) and I always have his wife and two kids on his mind. He enjoys a cold beer on a hot summer day after working on his house or my vegetable garden. When Ariel is not working, you can find him playing at the park with his children or taking trips to the ocean to go fishing and crabbing.

  • Andy Vanderveerdebondt
    Service Manager

    Hometown: Cloverdale, CA

    I have been racing asphalt circle track cars for 12 years. I started racing a 1971 mustang street stock that I built in my garage with my dad and a few friends. I won multiple championships at Ukiah and Lakeport speedway over the years.

    My fondest memory of working for the Hansel Auto Group would be the experience of working with some of the veteran technicians and hearing stories of how things have evolved from the downtown store. 


    I started with Hansel Ford in October of 2000 as an entry level technician, I worked my way as a team leader and eventually a Journeyman Diesel Technician. I was promoted by my mentor Wayne Shuster to the Hansel Ford Shop Foreman, and performed those duties for a year and a half before I was promoted to Service Manager at Henry Curtis Ford March of 2016. I am enjoying the challenge and love working with my team!

  • Marshall Young

    Sales & E-Commerce Supervisor

    Marshall's family moved to Novato CA from the Mojave Desert in 1980 and immediately fell in love with the North Bay community.  He enlisted in the US Army shortly after graduating High School in 1985 and spent 4 years with the 3rd Infantry The Old Guard in Washington DC as Presidential Support Duty and Official Ceremonial Unit.  After honorably discharging from the Army in 1990 he moved back to his current home in Novato and took the first job he was offered….selling Fords, the rest is just a lot of pretty funny stories!!  When he's not on the showroom floor he is most likely somewhere on the Pacific Ocean chasing down a fish or possibly behind a BBQ Pit.  Since 2013 Marshall has managed the Ecommerce Department at Henry Curtis Ford and truly enjoys helping the younger "troops" grow within the Hansel organization.

  • Katie Kraal

    I love the outdoors and spend almost every weekend of the summer at the river. I have a cat named Jackson who acts more like a dog than a cat; he will steal food right out of your mouth and loves his belly rubbed! I am a proud auntie of 3 girls and 2 boys and am the oldest of 3 girls. I help run the Children Ministry at my church, and have been a vegetarian for more than half of my life. I got into the car business in 2015 and find it to be more fun than it is work!​

  • Lesley Deck
    E-Commerce Representative

    Over my career I have been Executive Assistant's for Fortune 500 companies throughout the Bay Area for about 20 years.  I became a mother at the age of 32 at which time I was going to Nursing school and taking care of my son by myself.  I moved to Sonoma County about 9 years ago.  Over the last 9 years I have been working in Retail as Customer Service Manager, Operations Manager and ASM.  My passion has always been to find a new career path that I can be successful in and finally 3 months ago I found Henry Curtis Ford.  I am a BD Agent in the Internet Sales and I absolutely love it.  I have learned a lot of tools to help me succeed in car sales.  I also have a wonderful Manager Marshall who has my back always and is there to help in any way.  I believe I can be the next knowledgeable individual on our vehicle inventory.  It hasn't been an easy adjustment from retail to car sales but I know I can be a success story.
