MARK LOEPPKY

Some kids are born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Not Mark. But you could say, he was born with a set of car keys in one hand and a handshake in the other. That’s because by the time baby Mark arrived on the scene his Dad, Paul Loeppky, was supported a young family with a small used car business called Village Auto Sales in Saskatoon. So, before Mark was tall enough to reach the pedals, he was washing cars, running errands and helping out around the family business. When he sold his first car at the tender age of 14, Mark Loeppky knew that his destiny would follow the beat of a revving engine.

And destiny didn’t have to wait long. After graduating college, it took what seemed like about ten minutes for Mark to go into the car business. With a solid plan and partnership support from his parents he caught hold of his first business opportunity and bought an up-and-coming new car dealership. Soon Saskatoon Hyundai would become a top producer. And Mark just kept going, opening new dealerships and taking over others until he had created a set of thriving operations across multiple provinces.

By 2003 it was time to take Mark’s vision for a company and make it a brand. That vision? To sell the coolest products on earth by the coolest people backed by an inside out, top to bottom business plan underpinned by core values and culture that inspires employees to not just navigate through the company but to burn rubber while doing it. In fact, when Mark sees a team member begin to excel and realize their career dreams, that’s his favourite part. That brand? Mark would call it, and make it, FFUN.

Today, the FFUN Group operates 5 separate divisions representing 24 businesses and counting. The FFUN Group is committed to bringing fun to life for employees and customers alike delivering the best in employee and customer experience possible.
