I am proud to say that I have been with Toyota since the year 2000! Over this period of time, I have been able to watch our automobiles evolve to become the industry’s leader in Hybrid Technology, Safety, Reliability, and Resale value. Toyota as a manufacturer has also grown to Number 1 in sales globally! Over my years with Toyota, I have achieved Gold in Sales Society, Sales Excellence Award, and a Master Level in Sales Certification.
I try to treat everyone who buys a vehicle from us, the same way I treat my family members when they purchase a New vehicle from me. I think the buying process should include getting the vehicle YOU WANT, at a FAIR PRICE, with a HASSLE-FREE buying experience.
I am a proud father of three, I really enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 children outside of work. My hobbies include gardening, cooking(I consider myself to be a grill-master:) and riding motorcycles.

Joining the Germain team in August 2023 as a sales manager, I’m Michael Rowe. My prior management experience will be of great value in my current position. Out of High School, I joined the US Air Force which allowed me the opportunities to develop many skills that I find beneficial today.

Military service ran in my family, my grandparents were both in the Army where they met and married during WWII.

Hello, I’m Troy Almanson; Service Director for Germain Toyota of Columbus. The Germain Family presented the opportunity to become a part of their team in 2016 as a Service Advisor. My unique technical experience and customer satisfaction background led to the opportunity for my current position. I was born with a passion for taking things apart and finding out how they worked. My mother grew tired of me taking apart my bikes, lawnmowers, and household appliances within no time so I had to center my focus elsewhere, or else. That’s where my love for cars began and by the time I was 14, I was doing oil changes, brake jobs, and starting to tear into so much more.
I grew up in the Mansfield area, spelling Tygers with a “Y” while playing basketball and football during my youth. Shortly after graduating, I relocated to Columbus to continue my education in Engineering and Computer-Aided Drafting and Design. Away from work, I enjoy working on my Suzuki K7 Gsxr 750 motorcycle, listening to live music from my favorite new-school jazz and hip-hop artists, and diving into anything I can read: from my favorite comic books and graphic novels to poetry and self-help books; as well as, my Sunday football routine with an incredible group of friends, I think of as family. Here we go, Steelers, here we go! The most rewarding part of my position is providing my team with the right support and tools needed to provide our customers with exceptional service and the security of knowing they can depend on their vehicle every time they turn the key or push the start button. I look forward to meeting you during your service visit at Germain Toyota.

Born and raised in Groveport, OH I’m a graduate of Groveport Madison High School. Away from work, I enjoy watching movies, collecting sneakers, and spending time at home or you might catch me on stage displaying my talents as a stand-up comedian. If I were to be a superhero, I think I would be Batman, just because it’s Batman, duh. My favorite vacation escape was in Niagara Falls Canada, exploring the area with my best friend. The Tacoma is my favorite Toyota for its size and versatility, along with fuel economy and a great look.
Hello, I’m Sam Levy Body Shop Manager for Germain Toyota of Columbus. Joining the Germain team in February 2023 my automotive career began in June 1982 having owned my own independent shop.

I’ve lived around the world but always ended up back in Columbus where of course, I’m a BUCKEYE fan. I graduated from Whitehall Yearling and OSU / Hondros, Central Skyport Flight School. Away from work, I enjoy watching and playing live music, karaoke, riding my Harley, and spending time with my children and grandchildren along with my fiance’ Claudia.

When I’m not at the dealership I enjoy hanging out with my pup and shopping for plants.

Hello, I’m Kenzie Conley, sales consultant for Germain Toyota. Joining the Germain team in August 2023 I’m excited to bring my experience to my new role. Prior to entering the automotive industry, I worked as an EMT, a Cadet at Columbus Fire Academy, and a shift supervisor at Starbucks. All these positions allowed me to develop skills that will be beneficial in my sales position. I believe it’s important to treat every customer like my friend or family. I hope to be a part of transforming how people think about car salespeople. I want them to picture someone who is friendly and willing to assist in any way they can. Being part of a trustworthy team is important to me. It is easy for me to sell cars repping the Germain name knowing that we are customer-oriented. Born and raised in Columbus, I graduated from Hilliard Davison High School. I love the opportunity this city has to offer. The way it is always developing is another thing that keeps me here. After graduating high school, I enrolled in Akron University and a month before I was to begin, I pulled myself out and lived in England, where my mother is from, for a few months instead. Best decision I ever made. Prior to injuring my ankle, I kept busy in my free time power lifting, boxing trainer, and was a high school Softball Coach. Due to my injury, I took some time off to heal but look forward to returning to these activities. For now, I stay busy spending time with my significant other Alyssa, and our two dogs Chandler and Alfie. If I were a fictional character, I would be Doctor Who, specifically the eleventh doctor played by Matt Smith. Being able to have adventures and time travel would make life beyond interesting. I enjoy many genres and music but never skip a song by Fletcher or Morgan Wallen. Vacation at the ocean is something I will never turn down. My family always took beach vacations since I was a child, so it has become my peace. My favorite of the Toyota line is the 2023 Crown. Not only its incredible style but with it being a bit taller than the Camry it makes the Crown much more comfortable and versatile.
