David Nappa
President
732-997-1880

Dave has been working in the auto industry since the late 1970's and has the gray hair to show for it. He started by washing cars and, over the years, has learned from our excellent staff in every dealership department.  He also graduated from Wake Forest University in 1984 and holds an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg Graduate School of Management from 1987.

Today, Dave is fortunate to be the President of Dayton Toyota and Dayton Collision in South Brunswick and of Wayne Ford in Wayne, New Jersey. Our hard-working teams have helped us to earn numerous awards and accolades from our customers. We are all very proud that Dayton Toyota has received Toyota's prestigious Toyota President's Award twelve times. 

Dave is especially grateful for the loyalty and dedication of our outstanding associates. Some of them have remained loyal to us and our customers for over 20, 30, 40 and even more than 50 years.

They have also helped us to give back to our community through organizations like The South Brunswick Commission on Women, The St. Jude Walk Run to End Childhood Cancer, The Susan G. Komen Foundation, NJ for Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief, Wreaths Across America, New Beginnings Animal Rescue, The Monmouth Junction Fire Department, The South Brunswick Public Library, The Dayton Village Citizen's Coalition, The Valerie Fund, The Alzheimer's Association, The South Brunswick High School Viking Football and Marching Band, The South Brunswick PAL and South Brunswick National Night Out.

Dave loves spending his free time with his fantastic wife of 30 years and his brilliant twins.  He also attempts to play golf well and has mastered relaxing with his terriers.  He is a proud NY Giant, Yankee and NJ Devil fan. Dave grew up in hectic northern New Jersey and now resides in the peaceful Princeton area. 

His favorite Toyota vehicle is the amazing Toyota Supra.
