Gwen Jones
Gwen Jones
Product Advisor

Gwen started into Toyota Sales over 19 years ago. She had been a "soccer mom", in fact, a competitive swimming mom who had always been drawn to automotive sales. Gwen's uncle was in the business for over 50 years and encouraged her to pursue her passion. Toyota proved to be the ideal manufacturer for Gwen to work for with its industry leading standards, integrity and involvement in the community. In the fall of 2010 Gwen moved home to London after being gone for many years and applied at ToyotaTown because of its achievements as a dealership and its incredible management staff. Since then, she has loved getting to know the London community and the surrounding area, again. "The relationships that I have formed with my clients and the support that I have from my team at Toyotatown has led to me being the recipient of a 2016 Toyota Pinnacle Award for being a Top Performer in Sales Satisfaction with Toyota Canada. I have lived all over Ontario but have remained a South-Western Ontario "Farm Girl" at heart and I invite everyone to come and experience my hospitality at ToyotaTown." - Gwen Jones, Product AdvisorGwen started into Toyota Sales over 19 years ago.
