    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.

    Sales Consultant

    My name is Quinton Stewart Sales Consultant here at Germain Toyota of Columbus. In 2011 I got my start in the automotive industry. I feel that my experience as an intern with a music company in their marketing department has allowed me to develop the skills I need to transition into my current role and meet new people. My customer philosophy is from Dr. Maya Angelou – They may forget your name. But they will never forget how you made them feel. Being from the Columbus area I enjoy the many natural parks we have. I went to Independence HS but graduated from Academic Acceleration Academy. I received my trade-in carpentry and OTAP at Columbus State. My wife Janee’ and I have 3 daughters, Mya, Makiyah, Quianna. I have a shy persona and don’t like being the center of attention, however, I find myself there many times and have also be given opportunities to speak publicly. My favorite Toyota is the Land Cruiser, being a limited build they truly grab your attention.

    Joining the Germain team in June 2019, I’m Jessica Denny. I’m excited to bring my experience to my current role as an Acquisition Specialist. I strongly believe that if you aren’t happy, I’m not doing my job. Born and raised in Ohio I love that we get the best of all worlds with the change of seasons.

Away from the dealership I enjoy going to movies, Dave and Buster’s and enjoying a nighttime motorcycle rides with my high school sweetheart Jordan. My favorite vacation spot is in Florida. I’m familiar with the area, have family located there and its super chill and relaxing. No one knows but I went to American Idol with some friends to audition, unfortunately, stage fright took over, but I was able to meet Jennifer Lopez. The Avalon is my favorite of the Toyota line. It was my first car ever, old and ran down but ran like it was brand new.

    Acquisition Specialist

    Hi, I’m McKenzie McGuire Acquisition Specialist 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 with 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.
