  • Mr. Jack Kain, Founder

    Mr. Jack Kain has been a dealer since 1952 and sets the tone for Jack Kain Ford employees by making an effort to meet every customer.

    To get away from his parents' dairy farm as a young man, he started selling cars in 1947 while attending the University of Kentucky majoring in pre-law. After a stint in the Air Force, he returned to Kentucky in 1953 and bought a DeSoto/Plymouth dealership in Frankfort with help from his father.

    He sold the dealership in 1960 after Ford offered him the opportunity to buy a store located in Frankfort. He has purchased other dealerships and brands over the years, fixing them up and then selling them. He sold the original Ford store in Frankfort and bought the Versailles store in 1979. In 2003, the Ford store moved from a 2-acre location to a modern facility on 12 acres where it currently resides.

    Years ago, he spearheaded an economic development authority to attract industry jobs to the Lexington region. "The area was so dependent on tobacco, we had to do something," Kain says. His efforts helped convince Toyota to build a plant in the area, which led to the creation of 3,500 jobs.

    Kain has a large family, with nine children, 21 grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Four children work at Jack Kain Ford.

  • Bob Kain, General Mgr

    Born into the "Baby Buster" generation, often called the MTV Generation or Gen X, Robert (Bob) Kain graduated from Lexington Catholic High School and earned his bachelor's degree from EKU in 1987 with a major in Police Administration. He served in the United States Marine Corps Reserves as a military policeman before receiving an honorable discharge in 1988. It was a natural transition into the automotive business over 28 years ago, a business he was born into. He learned the ropes from the best, his father Jack Kain and today Bob manages a staff of over 50 employees at the Jack Kain Ford dealership in Versailles.

    Bob serves as a trustee on the United Way of the Bluegrass Board of Directors, is the current Chairman of the Woodford County United Way Board, has given his time as a Big Brother and served on the Board of Directors for the Bluegrass Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization. He is a member of the Marine Corps League - Dan Daly Detachment for former Marines in the Bluegrass area. He is an active member of the National Automobile Dealers Association and the Kentucky Automobile Dealers Association. Bob has been married to Jan Kain for 21 years and they now reside in Midway, KY with four dogs.

    When Bob isn't running his family's twelve-time Ford President's Award winning dealership he enjoys exercising and hiking and is an avid Kentucky Wildcat fan.


  • Vickie Fister, Operations Mgr

    As the youngest daughter and middle child of the 9 Kain siblings, Vickie's introduction to the car business came after her graduation from Lexington Catholic High School. Vickie worked at the dealership throughout that summer before going to college at Eastern Kentucky University where she earned a degree in Juvenile Corrections.

    After spending 11 years working within the court system at Fayette District and Circuit Courts, Vickie went to work building Camry's at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Georgetown, KY to help support her family while her husband went back to college to earn his Accounting Degree. After 11 years on the line at Toyota, Vickie suffered a neck injury and had to leave a job she loved to take a sales position within the family business.

    Upon graduating from the Dealer Candidate Academy at the National Automobile Dealers Association in 2003, Vickie took a more active role in the management of the dealership. Currently she is the Operations Manager.

    Vickie and her husband Dan were married in 1978 and they have 2 sons that they are very proud of and 1 granddaughter that is the center of their universe. She has served on many Boards and Committees for organizations that range from the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce to her local church in an effort to help our community. While she has many charitable interests, she champions for organ donation and the unborn at every opportunity. At the end of the day, Vickie enjoys working in her flower garden and watching the sunset from her front porch.

  • Bill Kain, New Car Mgr

    Growing up watching westerns Bill was drawn to the world of horses and began to look for opportunities within that business as soon as he was able to work.  Taking his first "real" job, away from the family dealership, at age 20 as a groom on a Woodford County thoroughbred farm. He learned everything he could about the breeding, raising and training of racehorses, and the management of pastures. Eventually hanging his own shingle on the family farm at Ducker Station in the early 90's. Meeting a multitude of fantastic people and enjoying life in the great outdoors.

    Bill met and married his wife Lynne in 1996 and after a few years of wedded bliss, had the first of two sons, Graham, in the spring of 1999 followed shortly thereafter by Lee in the fall of 2000. With two hungry and growing boys in diapers and looking at a lifetime of mounting expenses, Bill took an inventory of the horses he had tied his fortunes to, and began to have doubts about those animals ability to pay for the life he wanted for his family.

    Bill came back on board with Jack Kain Ford with the grand opening of the current dealership in 2003. He is thoroughly enjoying every aspect of life at the family dealership. Providing transportation and service to so many excellent customers has been a tremendous way of life for him and his family. Working closely with two brothers and his sister, with the guidance and experience of a wonderful father is a real blessing, and not one that Bill takes for granted. It often surprises people to learn how well these siblings work together and truly enjoy their time at the office. A true testament to the great parenting and the lessons of respect and courtesy they have received from Mr. Kain.
