This Cincinnati native was born in the Western Hills neighborhood and now calls Delhi home. His family has long been engaged in all things Cinci, from attending high school on top of Price Hill at Elder High School and moving onto college at Miami University in Oxford, OH. The Sander family is also highly involved in local church activity with multiple parishes, including Our Lady of Visitation in the Mack South area to Our Lady of Victory. Matt personally is a member of the Tri-State Mustang/Ford Club; of course he is! He loves the classic Mustangs that his grandfather, THE Woody Sander, sold in the ’60s. Imagine the excitement around the K Code Hi-Po 289 Mustang release, the 302 V8, and the 1969 Mach 1! We’re glad Matt is such an enthusiast, but his interests span further into the Ford Family. He loves sharing his vintage 1939-1942 Ford 9N tractor with his family out on the farm. Outside of work, he loves Nicola’s in OTR and Sporting Clay Competitions at Elk Creek in Owenton, KY.
Amy is a real Brown County, OH girl with deep Georgetown and Mt. Orab roots. She’s attended nearly every Ohio Valley Antique Show (OVAM) since her birth, and while she lives in Milford now, she lists Rt. 68 as her favorite road to cruise. Amy is an avid supporter of animal rescue and endorses the Brown County Animal Shelter, has four rescue dogs at home, and is a passionate gearhead both in and out of work. Don’t tell anyone, but the love of her life is actually her classic Buick. In her off time, you’ll find her in downtown Milford at 20 Brix.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 2012—8 years, 10 months! Angie puts some major miles on her Explorer, shuttling her family around Oak Hills and the Westside; lacrosse, cheer, you name it—she’s always busy. Woody Sander Ford lucked out when Angie bought her first car here (a 5-Speed Escort, for those #FBF readers), and after that purchase, she was hooked! We think she’s Super-Mom and Super-Awesome with our family, too. If she has any spare time, she loves Jeff Ruby’s Carlo and Johnny and highly recommends that restaurant for any special occasions.
With Woody Sander Ford since 2019—2 Years! You may recognize Mike Vaughan, especially if you’ve been to The Captain’s Tavern in Lawrenceburg, IN, on Karoake night. He’s been a staple of the greater Cinci live music scene since 1968, when he started playing the trumpet in R&B bands all over Cincinnati. Our songbird is also quite involved with Mooselodge 1469 in Taylormill, and we’re proud of how much he’s given to not only our community but to outreach as far as Florida with the Mooseheart and Moosehaven programs. You’ll have to look no further than Mike to find an expert in all things Finance, but he’d also be happy to discuss Blood, Sweat, and Tears any time with fellow music fans.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 2000—21 Years! Our Service Manager, Bobby, is originally from Colerain but calls Harrison home these days. This family man has a passion for working around his house, and while we think his knack for automotive is where he shines, he says he’s a pro at designing and installing Burnt Wood on ceilings. He learned all of that from YouTube! Besides being a Pro-DIYer, Bobby is immensely proud of his children: a Master’s student at Mount St. Joseph University and an undergrad at Ohio University, Athens. If he’s not hanging around his family, he’s enjoying a local microbrewery and suggests we all try White Dog Distilling Company in Middletown.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 1986—36 Years! Enter through the Service Department and hang a left down the hallway; soon enough, you’ll see “PARTS” on the big grey door. That, friends, is Ted Poland’s domain. He’s been with us for twenty-six years as a level-headed Parts manager, which is why we love his off-hours hobby. For 25 years, Ted has been a player with the Delhi Skirt Game; if you’re not in the know, let us tell you. The Skirt Game is a charity 501c3 organization that raises money for their community with league sports—dressed in ladies’ clothes. The community supports them via donations, and they support the community. Besides being a fantastic, charitable person, Ted loves playing golf at The Mill in Winton Woods and watching his 11-year-old grandson play sports.
Here at Woody Sander Ford, Bobby Creed III, part of the Creed legacy, is carving out his own space. Since there are several Bobs, including his father, he’s taken on the alias “BC3.” BC3 is a car enthusiast, likes to build cars and trucks in his spare time but satisfies the need for thrill-seeking by taking Haunted Tours. He’s recently toured The Waverly Hills Sanitorium in Kentucky and highly recommends visiting. Like most Queen City residents, he’s a loyal Reds fan and is excited to welcome Barry Larkin back home. If you ask him about camping at Indian Lake and Ceasars Creek, he can give you some great recommendations.
The Creeds have been part of the Woody Sander Ford family since 1962; they’re as integrated into Cincinnati culture as they are our own family. Bob is a West Chester local now but attended Roger Bacon High School, just down the road from our location. He’s got an exciting and eclectic set of hobbies, so Bob has something in common with everyone. You’ll find him at the local estate sales and auctions, hunting down Precious Moments figurines for his wife or searching for those elusive Mercury Dimes. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention his love for golfing all over town. If you’re thinking of challenging Bob to 18 holes, you may want to meet up at Hickory Woods Golf Course, his favorite.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 2008—12 Years! Bob Marks is a local legend, but he originated in Philadephia. During a long and illustrious thirty-year career with US Shoe Corporation (which Luxottica acquired later), Bob moved to Colerain, OH, and has since been a proud Queen City local. While Bob lists his passion as helping people trade out of their old cars, we know the softer side. Bob is a consistent donor of time and money to the UC Hospital Barrett Cancer Cancer and champions their cause. He also donates to Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, which took over operations for the Hamilton County animal shelter in Northside. He loves to get his friends involved with donating and fostering.
We aren’t short on enthusiasts around here, and Daniel Reichwein may qualify for “Biggest Gearhead.” Our North College Hill auto aficionado graduated from LaSalle High School and then attained his degree in Electronic Media Technology from the University of Cincinnati: Blue Ash. He’s put immense energy into the local car group “Good Enough Garage,” which meets monthly in the Spring and Summer months in Springdale. He’s driving a Mustang CS/GT at the moment and will happily discuss all things Mustang with our customers, from Saleen to EcoBoost to RTR. Outside of the car life, he’s bowling at Colerain Bowl, hitting Full Throttle Adrenaline Park, and as a tradition post-car meet, eating at the Skyline on Kemper.
Woody Sander Ford Since 2016—5 Years! Have you met the Mayor of Thursday Night Bike Night at the Quaker Steak and Lube in Florence, KY? Roger is serious about Harleys and especially loves his 2006 Deuce Softail. Multitalented, he serves as our Bronco Specialist but also has a talent for Home Remodeling. We thank him for his four years as a United States Marine and hope that you have some Bronco Ford Accessories questions for Roger when you swing by our store.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 2014—7 Years! The Challenge: configure a heavy-duty, customizable chassis that’s just right for your company. The solution: contact Terry Riesenberg. Terry has a BBA in Finance from the University of Cincinnati, and the “numbers guy” description is accurate. He retired from Ford Credit after thirty years of service, having learned a lifetime of helpful information. Now we’re lucky enough to have this Ft. Thomas resident here at our store sharing his wealth of knowledge with us. He’s active in St. Thomas Parish and a member of the Gala Committee at Newport Central Catholic, but mostly, he’s passionate about his family. And heavy-duty Fords.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 1996—25 Years! We can’t think of anyone with a more Cincinnati-infused history than Andre. Having worked security at the Paul Brown Stadium for the Bengals and being immersed in our local football scene, he changed careers and has been with Woody Sander Ford for twenty-six years. Born in Cinci and residing in West College Hill, he’s a local pro. When you stop by to say hi to Andre, make sure to thank him for his service in the United States Marine Corps and stay awhile to talk about the Reds.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 2010-11 years! If you’ve met Kip, you know he’s got a cool, calm nature; you may find it surprising that he was in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years. Stationed in Hawaii, Kip was a Telecomm specialist—during those years, he learned crypto communication. These days, the codes he deciphers are from Ford’s Book of Body Codes, and he’s a pro. Also generous beyond measure, Kip is an active donor to the Cinci CARE SCPA and looks forward to adopting a Labrador. He’d love for his friends and family to join him in contributing to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; he’s passionate about charity. Kip is a Cinci native and resides now in Springdale, but here on the Westside at Woody Sander Ford is where we think Kip does his best work.
You’ll find Ryan Kaiser juggling multiple duties here at Woody Sander Ford in our Service Department; at home, he’s more inclined to settle into methodically building Star Wars LEGO sets. He’s a Queen City local and supports our Cincinnati Bengals and the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. Who else loves Ryan’s favorite retired Bengals player (and one of the greatest offensive lineman ever), Anthony Munoz? All local, all the time, Ryan was born in Montfort Heights, lives in Colerain, and says everyone should try his favorite restaurant, The Red Squirrel.
With Woody Sander Ford Since 1986: 35 Years! If your definition of cool is a 1932 Ford, you may want to talk to Steve Hillgrove. That also applies if your definition of cool is a 1993 Fox Body Cobra or a Harley-Davidson Heritage Springer. Steve was born in Sayler Park, OH, and lives in Harrison, OH, now, but he’s a man on a mission to find the perfect cruise. Right now, he’ll tell you that his ideal motorcycle ride is from Versailles, Indiana to Madison, across the Ohio River to Rabbitt Hash, and into Rising Sun. This year in the summer, if you see him at Rollin’ On the River car show at Fernbank Park, be sure to share your favorite cruise route.
