He worked his way through the Parts Department and the Body Shop and was a Service Writer until the dealership moved to Versailles in 1979. He spent 2 years as Service Manager before he finally settled into sales in 1981.

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.

Jeremy describes his childhood as feeling like a nomad. Born in California in 1989 his parents soon decided to explore the United States. Moving every few years, they discovered new places and faces from CA to NY, and a quite a few in-between. They were able to meet some great people along the way and he says it made him a better-rounded person, being a part of so many diverse communities throughout the United States. He wouldn’t ask for a different upbringing. Adventure into the unknown was exhilarating!Finally, the family decided to settle in Kentucky and made it their home.

Thankfully his father, being in the automotive industry for 30+ years (he was at the time a manager of an automotive repair facility in Lexington) was able to offer Jeremy a position as an oil changer/tire technician in his shop, which he gladly accepted and so his automotive career began.
From there, advancing his way through the automotive field, Jeremy was able to master most car repairs and diagnostics for all makes and models, moving up to a service advisor and interim service manager.
Currently, Jeremy lives in Lexington with his longtime girlfriend, their 2 dogs (Onyx a rescue Lab mix) & (Keleigh a rescue 12 year old Chihuahua/Jack Russell) and last but not least a rabbit named Miles (the troublemaker) completing their small family.
