Tony Bowater

CEO

I am a third generation Bowater family member, proud to continue in my grandfather's and father's footsteps. I believe that our successes as Toyota Dealer of the Year 2014, 2015 and 2016 are a direct team result of dedication, respect and commitment. On a personal note, I am married with three children, and still like to play the drums when I get the chance.
