Our Team

Lance Reinheimer

President, Licensed Technician

  • I grew up in Thompson, Manitoba and had 11 years of schooling where I became a huge lover of hockey. I graduated from high school at John Taylor Collegiate in 1973 and then took the 10 month Automotive Repair course at Red River Community College.
    During the next five years, worked as an auto technician and obtained my Interprovincial licence. Also during those five years I took accounting at night school. I then ventured into the management, first at Kmart Auto for 2 years, and then 9 years as Parts, Service and Body Shop Manager at a Nissan Dealership, which brings me to where I am today. In October, 1989 I started Lanpro Auto.
    I am married to my wife Leanne since August, 1980, and have three sons and a daughter. My oldest son has two daughters, my second son has one son, and my daughter has one son, which gives us two granddaughters and two grandsons.

Julian Carlyle-Gordge

Shop Co-Ordinator/Service Advisor

  • Started with Lanpro Auto Care Centre Ltd. in April 2006
  • I'm not sure where the time went but I have enjoyed growing and learning with the company. In that time I've seen many changes here: from the acquisition of new technology and expanded training programs (to meet the ever changing needs of our industry) to the implementation of our unique (and free) NPA Warranty and the 25-25 Commercial Warranty. While this forward-focus (and all the challenges of our industry) continue to make my job interesting here at Lanpro, it's the positive feedback from our loyal clientele that provides the true reward and satisfaction.

Matthew Skinner

Service Advisor/Pre-Owned Vehicle Advisor

  • Started with Lanpro Auto Care Centre Ltd. in March 2010
  • I took this position because I saw it as a challenge in helping Lanpro grow.
    I graduated from Kelvin High School in 2004. After that I completed the Automotive Technician Certificate Program at Red River Community College in 2005. I then worked at a new car dealership for a year. Being undecided at what I wanted to do, I went back to Red River Community College where I took the 2 year Business Administration, graduating in 2009.
    I've decided that I enjoy working in the automotive industry which leads me to where I am today.
    I love spending time at the cottage where I use the boats, ATV's, off road and high performance vehicles, and snowmobiling in the winter.
