Thomas Andrew Voll, fleet field manager for Toyota Motor North America, passed away unexpectedly in his home in Wanaque, N.J., on April 13, 2022. He was 62.
Voll, at the time of his passing, was responsible for Toyota fleet vehicles sales in the Northeast for the commercial, government, and livery and taxi market segments. Voll spent almost his entire career working in the Northeast region, with a brief assignment as a sales administration manager at the Toyota Motor Sales corporate headquarters in Torrance, Calif.
“Tom was not only a tremendous asset to the Toyota Fleet Team as a Fleet Field Manager, but he was a valuable member of the Toyota Family. Tom was just a few months shy of his 35th anniversary with our company. During his tenure he established many strong relationships with team members, dealers and all the vendors, partners, and customers he encountered,” said Don Fordiani, general manager, fleet Sales for Toyota Division. “Tom wasn’t just a co-worker but a friend. We will miss him more than words can express.”
As cited by Fordiani, among Voll’s responsibilities was the support of approximately 115 fleet-minded Toyota franchised dealers in the Northeastern states of NY, NJ and CT. Voll was also a key member of the Toyota sales team that successfully introduced Toyota products to the New York taxi and livery commission.
In addition, Voll was active in the NAFA - New York-Intercounty Chapter and was a past member of the board of directors for the NAFA Foundation. He joined Toyota in 1987 after a short stint working in the construction industry following his graduation from Susquehanna University in 1981, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing and sociology.
He was born and raised in Morris Plains, N.J, and attended Parsippany Hills High School and was a member of the school track team.
Voll is survived by his son Zach and his wife Judi, who also works in the fleet industry and is currently director fleet services, Americas for Avis Budget Group.
