    Financial Services Manager
    403-243-9997

    Hello everyone,

     My name is Cody and I'm one of the finance managers here at Straightline Kia!

     I've been working in the auto industry since I graduated high school back in 2011, but have had a love for anything related to engines since I started riding motocross at a young age. After graduating from high school I went to SAIT to study a course specifically designed for automotive management!

     Outside of work you can catch me on my motorcycle or spending time with my family and friends! I also enjoy playing the odd game of poker with anyone!

    If you are ever in the area and looking to have a conversation about vehicles or have some questions about financing, please stop by and say hi anytime. Our slogan here at Straightline is "Shifting the experience" and I would love the opportunity to show that!

    Hello everyone! 

    I'm Cyndi Becker. I consider myself born and raised in Calgary but if you want to be technical then I was born in Ontario and came here when I was 3 years. This is absolutely my city of choice! 

    I have been in the finance industry for 12 years and have enjoyed helping every single client I have met along the way. I've financed a wide range of things from cranes and excavators all the way to cars and homes! 

    When I am not at work having fun, I am with one of my three kids going boating, bike riding, walking my two dogs or simply sitting in my hammock reading a book. 

    Our slogan for Straightline Kia is "Shifting The Experience". I firmly believe that every customer that comes to us will feel and see the difference that we have to offer. 

    Don't be shy, come by and say hi!

    Hello and welcome to the Straightline KIA website! 

    My name is Carlos Mena, a 26 year old Calgarian working out of Straightline KIA. 

    I recently got into the Automotive Industry because I have a passion for meeting and helping people; and what better way to service my customers than honestly, and professionally selling him or her the vehicle that fits his/her unique needs and wants. I try and make every purchase fun and energetic because buying a car is supposed to be excited! 

    When I'm not working I can usually be found running, practicing yoga, or going on some form of adventure with my dog Odin. 

    I look forward to meeting anyone and everyone who wants my help :)

  • Rob McNeil
    Service Advisor
    403-243-9997

    Hi my name is Rob, Service Advisor here at Straightline Kia.

    After having been a sales person/manager with a domestic auto dealer since 1996, I joined the team here at Straightline in January of 2017.

    I've always done my best to make sure everyone I have the opportunity to help is treated like a member of our family and it's great working with a manufacturer and Dealer Principal that share the same philosophy.

    When I'm not at the dealership, I enjoy just about everything outdoors... camping, hiking, hunting, motorcycling, most sports and time with family and friends.

    Looking forward to meeting as many clients as I can and offering whatever help possible.

    Whatever you're going to do... have fun doing it!!
