The robust history of Autoland began in the mid-1940’s when a young Donald Toresco first ventured into the automotive industry. In 1964, after years of dedication Toresco opened his first dealership in North Plainfield, NJ. Somerset Motors grew quickly to be a very well-known and respected dealership. In 1968, Mr. Toresco expanded his dealership and opened North Plainfield Dodge, offering both new and used vehicles. By 1975, the store had been reborn as Dodgeland and was the largest Chrysler Corporation dealership in the country. A true entrepreneur, Toresco set his sights even higher and in the early 1980’s he began construction of the world’s first auto mall. The goal was met when the first inventory arrived and customers could choose between Toyota, Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep products.
Autoland realizes that advocacy between the employer, employee, consumer, and community is vital. Their goal is to provide a quality product while maintaining customer and employee satisfaction. In doing so, Autoland has achieved numerous awards and honors from manufacturers and vendors. They were one of the first car dealers in NJ to implement an employee assistance program. The extensive program is managed by a certified therapist and counselor, and realizes that the wellbeing of their employees has a direct impact on the customer experience.
According to Mr. Montenero, “Employee satisfaction begets customer satisfaction.” as there is a close correlation between the two.
Mr. Montenero, serves on various automotive boards and is highly regarded within the automotive industry. He is a firm believer in giving back and continues to carry the torch for philanthropy, education, and civic support that Mr. Toresco held dear.
