  • Tom Caranci
    Service Manager

    I am very much a local guy. I have spent the past 40 years at a Toyota dealer and enjoyed the comradery with my fellow employees and have developed lifelong friendships with
    many customers who often seem more like family than business relationships. I started as a back counter parts person and occasional parts driver and have worked most positions at a dealership. I have spent the last 10 being the service manager here.

    Away from work I love spending time with my family and we spend as much time a possible enjoying the outdoors.

  • Matt Tiemann
    Sales Manager "Freeman Toyota Guy"

    I'm a veteran in the automotive business. With a love for cars, I gravitated naturally to the field of auto sales. But despite my experience, I take pride in an approach which is anything but typical when compared to the traditional stereotypes. I'm a father of four that focuses on customer service first and foremost when it comes to leading a team to success. I hire likeminded people that have a customer-focused mentality and take pride in helping, informing and creating a low pressure highly informative atmosphere for our guest to shop, service and even stop by to show off their latest upgrades they've make to their Freeman Toyota! If you want to get treated like family #ComeSeeFreeman @freemantoyotaguy
