    General Sales Manager

    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 12 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.

    Hi, I’m Buddy Travis Used Car Director for Germain Toyota. I’ve been in the automotive industry since 2000 and have been with Germain Motor Company for 3 years.

    I’m a graduate of Jonathan Alder High School where I met my lovely wife Amanda. We’ve been married for 6 years.

Not all my time, however, is spent riding I do enjoy spending some time with family.

    When you are in the market for your next vehicle, I hope you allow my team and me the opportunity to earn your business.

My car and I moved to the Columbus area in 2013 for the opportunities it offered. I stay so busy that I have very little free time I find that I’m usually trying to catch up on my sleep if that is actually possible. My favorite vacation spot in Austin, TX and many folks don’t know this but I’m allergic to blueberries. My favorite Toyota is the Camry; I own one and love it. Although I have had my eye on a 4Runner, you just never know what’s next for me!

I graduated from Russell High School and Marshall University with a BA in Psychology / Biology. I moved in 2009 to open an Allstate Agency. My husband Larry Stevens and I have 4 children, Larry III, Patricia, Sebastian, and Penelope. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, cycling and spending time outdoors. My favorite vacation spot in Mykonos for its beauty and solitude. My favorite Toyota has to be the Tacoma, let’s face it, it’s just badass.

    Hi, I’m McKenzie McGuire Appointment Coordinator for Germain Toyota. I joined the Germain team in 2016 bringing with me a background in a Nursing Care facility that taught me patience and allowed me to develop my customer service skills to provide our patients the best possible care. I believe customer service is the opportunity to exceed our customers’ expectations, to cater to their needs, show them we will follow through, and do what we can to keep them because we value them. Without our customers, we are nothing. Born and raised in Columbus, OH I graduated from Licking Heights and am now attending Columbus State for my degree in Business Management. In my free time, I enjoy reading a variety of books, exploring, painting, and attending sports games and concerts. No one knows but I once auditioned for Disney and got a callback, but ended up not going through with anything and probably should have. My favorite Toyota is the 2018 Camry, it’s spacious, sporty with many updates.
