Andy has been the Stephen Toyota Sales manager for over 20 years. He has sold many vehicles that are still on the road today and is still waiting for those folks to come in & trade. I guess that is the downside of selling a vehicle that just keeps running when others are just scrapped. When you come into Stephen Toyota please stop by and say hi to Andy, that is if he has not already greeted you.

Hired in 1977 as an outside Salesperson, Donna was the first female to make a mark in automotive sales at this dealership.
In 1978, she became the Fleet Sales Manager. It was a slow start, since it was a new department, but things quickly changed and the next thing she knew they were the top selling fleet dealer in the US. selling over 18,000 vehicles a year! Donna's next project was the Internet. Nobody believed in the Internet as much as our leader Steve Barberino and with his push, Donna implemented the first Internet Sales Department.
In her down time, Donna enjoys spending time with her nieces, nephews and sister. She also loves to vacation in exotic places around the globe. While on holiday, she has taken interest in S.C.U.B.A. diving all over the globe and has the pictures to prove it. Her most recent adventure was a Safari to Botswana, Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls on Safari.
