Larry Kruse - General Manager
Larry Kruse is a Fort Wayne area native and a graduate of Leo High School. Family is very important, as he enjoys spending time with his two children, Rachael and Colton.
“My family is my first priority and I have strong faith which strongly influences my decisions.”
He started with the Bob Rohrman Group in October of 1989 as the Used Car Manager at Fort Wayne Toyota when the dealership opened. He took over as General Manager in January of 1991, added Lexus in January of 1992, followed by the management of Fort Wayne Kia in 2006 and more recently Fort Wayne Acura.
He is very dedicated to his employees and their success by teaching, coaching, & mentoring. He loves seeing others become successful and takes pride in creating solid leadership to his team.
“Success to me means being a good leader to my team, and helping them win.“
He is equally loyal to the customers of Fort Wayne Toyota, Fort Wayne Kia, Lexus of Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Acura. 'It’s important to go the extra mile for the customer, working hard to do whatever it takes to get the job done.' If a customer has a problem, he looks forward to helping them find a solution.
“It’s important to have a positive attitude so that it becomes infectious to those around me.”
Larry Kruse is not your typical General Manager. You might see Larry at the dealership more than most others. Over the years he has developed great relationships and friendships with many of his customers. He enjoys being at the dealership to help old friends, loyal repeat customers, and new prospective customers alike. He wants everyone to have the best experience possible, even hand selecting the preowned vehicles in his inventory to insure the customer has the most quality vehicle available.
For Larry, it's all about the people-his employees and customers.
“The bottom line is that I care about people and really like helping those around me on their journey through life.”
