       A little bit about me: After graduating from Lakeland High School, I attended Siena College where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and Management.  I currently live in Hopewell Junction NY with my wife Debra of 20 years and have two boys, Michael 16 and Lucas 11.  My wife is an elementary school teacher in Mahopac, and I myself have been working for the Volz Auto Group since 1988.  I am currently the General Manager at our Bill Volz Westchester location, but began my journey with the Volz Auto Group at Meadowland of Carmel.
        I am currently a board member of the LaGrange Little League Baseball/ Softball Association.  In my free time I enjoy playing and watching football, baseball, and basketball and am a die hard NY Yankees, Knicks, and Dallas Cowboys fan!  I also enjoy island vacations and dining out as often as possible.  I live my life by the motto, "Work hard, play hard".

    I'm John Russell the sales manager for Volz auto.  I'm from the Putnam county area, graduated from Mahopac high.  I have worked for the Volz family for 21 years. I started as a salesperson in 1994, was promoted to manager in 2000 and have done a variety of manager responsibilities over the last 15 years.   I reside in Danbury CT with my wife and children.  I'm married for 25 years, I have 2 boys who are 22 and 14 years old.  I'm a retired military veteran and have been deployed 4 times since 1996.  I have never worked for any other car dealership,  I found the Volz family values, ethics and beliefs, to be the foundation of their success,  along with their genuine concern for community, customers and employees.  The Volz family have found by taking care of their employees, the employees will take care of their customers. Like something I have learned over my 23 years of military service, if you take care of your men, they will take care of the team or family. Here at Volz auto you are apart of the family.View More

          I began working as a sales consultant for Bill Volz Westchester in the fall of 2011. I am a very energetic person,and a quick learner.  I do very well when it comes to dealing with people.  I run a few businesses on the side, so I guess you could say that I'm a very independent person.  I grew up in Poughquag, and graduated from Arlington High School.  I have been on my own since I was 19 years old, and have worked very hard to get where I am today. I graduated from Westchester Community College with a degree in Business Administration, and am planning on furthering my education.
         In my spare time I enjoy motor cross, working on cars, snowboarding, excavating work, running my businesses, and riding my motorcycle.

    I grew up in the automobile business! I remember going to my fathers dealership on Sundays as a young boy and exploring the parts dept. I loved it!!! I then worked there, as a product specialist, earning the money to get through college. I graduated Pace University in 1991 and at that point my family had sold the dealership. Perfect timing huh? Knowing I worked well with people and graduated with a Bachelors in business I decided to go back into sales and have been doing so ever since. I love cars and I love people so if you are looking for a new or pre-owned automobile, give me a call!!
