Sales and Leasing Consultant

After having successful positions in healthcare sales, customer relations and restaurant ownership, David Cox has found matching vehicles with his customer's needs the most satisfying of all of his career stops.

Having worked at other dealerships in the region, David is quick to point out that buying a vehicle from Toyota Volvo of Keene is easy, professionally approached and stress free.

" I try to put myself in my customer's shoes. I do this every day where most of my customers purchase cars every 5 to 10 years. So listening is key to understanding  their unique situations and finding the right vehicle for them. Selling Toyotas and Volvos also helps!"

Away from work David enjoys his family time, the 2 rounds of golf he plays each season and traveling. When asked, David admits his goal with every customer is to provide "a perfect experience." David is quietly passionate about car sales and taking care of his customers.
