Joe Caligiuri , Sales/Leasing Consultant

My sales production within the Ford Showroom has been in the top 3 since I started at Towne Ford 12 years ago.

Prior to that, I was the top salesman at Jack Adkins Ford for the last 6 years they were open.

I still enjoy my job 24 years later. I truly enjoy making a stressful time not so stressful. If you want a nice easy car buying experience, call me and I promise I'll do what I can to help.

After a successful 28 year career selling in the paint and coatings industry in the western new York area, employed Glidden Paints, ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries), Akzo Nobel, and PPG Coatings., with an excellent reputation for relation building and customer service. I decided to take on the challenge of a new, second career, with Towne Automotive, in April 2015. I have risen to the challenge of the car sales industry and I am in the process of building a solid customer base as I had in the paint industry with a focus on excellent customer service, great follow up, trust and honesty. I look forward to the challenge ahead and the satisfaction of serving our customers and building relationship for a strong repeat and referral business.
