Van has an eye for film and photography, he is in progress of completing his Bachelor’s degree in Business Entrepreneurial leadership. He is the man behind the outstanding pictures and videos of Autoform’s inventory. Van has a negative knowledge of pop culture and only enjoys cars that have Bluetooth connectivity and an automatic gearbox. On any given day you can catch him flying his drone capturing the beauty of BC.
His favourite car? Would be the Ferrari 458…mainly because it has Bluetooth.
Lisa has been with Autoform from the beginning. Starting as a Junior accountant and holding all administrative tasks, she now holds her CPA and CGA. Unlike everyone else at Autoform, Lisa does not care about cars, although she really enjoys running them into stationary objects that briefly become mobile. She is not allowed to drive any of the company cars. Please alert any Autoform employee if you spot her driving a car with a “D” plate. We can’t afford any more insurance claims. She wants to state that “she is not 180 pounds like her photo shows.”
Holding a BA in Economics from SFU, Aaron comes from a well-heeled fanatical car family. The Van Pykstra family owned and operated a wholesale race parts distribution business for over thirty-five years. They continue to own and operate Burrard Autostrasse, one of Canada’s premier Auto Body and Collision shops.
Aaron started his time in the auto industry when he was ten years old. Working in the family automotive business where he made a dollar an hour, firmly supervised by his father. Through his youth and into his adulthood he found himself continually working on cars in the family garage and shops. Naturally, this fused into buying and selling cars through his adult life, which has ultimately, lead to the creation of Autoform.
Autoform seemed like a natural progression as he worked in luxury goods retail for several years while studying at SFU. Aaron continues to thoroughly enjoy the automotive retail business and feels privileged to be able to come to work each day at Autoform. He also prefers his Vesper Martinis shaken, not stirred and claims his only weakness is kryptonite. He also insists on matching his socks to his tie and watch every day.
Favourite car? Toss-up between a 2015 Porsche 991 Turbo and a Ferrari 458 Italia.
