President and Dealer Principal Julie Dunning
Dunning Toyota President Julie Dunning was nominated for the 2016 TIME Dealer of the Year award. The Toyota dealer was among 50 other car dealers to earn the nomination. Dunning was selected for her charity work. The Publisher of TIME Magazine Meredith Long and the President of Auto Finance for Ally Financial Tim Russi announced the nomination. They explained that those selected for the nomination demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the automotive industry and an ongoing propensity for charitable activities. “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by Time and Ally,” Dunning explained after learning of the nomination. “We are committed to supporting the community in a variety of ways, and we take great pride in being able to give back to the area.” As a nominee, Dunning will receive $1,000 for the 501c(3) charity of her choice, and she will be acknowledged on the website, which celebrates the charitable achievements and contributions of all of the nominees for this annual award. The TIME Dealer of the Year award is considered by many to be the one of the most illustrious honors in the automotive industry, and previous award winners are among the most successful and respected auto dealers in the country. Dunning Toyota supports a wide variety of charities through donations and philanthropic activities. The dealership is the number one donor of toys for the Toys for Tots campaign in Washtenaw County, and they supported 250 local children during the Christmas season by purchasing toys for them. In 2014, Dunning Toyota donated $18,000 to the Alpha House, a homeless shelter that serves women and children and their families. Dunning Toyota also supports Arbor Hospice, donating a 4WD vehicle each year to the organization, and provides support for the Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor and the Humane Society of Huron Valley. Additionally, Dunning hosts a variety of community events at her dealership, such as family movie nights and a “Trunk or Treat” Halloween event for community children. Dunning, 69, graduated from Roanoke High School in Roanoke, IN, and attended Michigan Christian College in Rochester Hills. She started her professional career as a salesperson at Toyota Ann Arbor in 1973 and was promoted to general sales manager in 1979. In 2000, Dunning became president and dealer principal. She currently owns the Toyota dealership as well as Dunning Subaru in Ann Arbor. Dunning has three sons and one grandson who also work in the automotive sales industry.

Meet Our Onboarding Department Staff

Director of Onboarding Todd  Bailey

I've been working at Dunning for over 15 years. I am currently the Director of Onboarding. I love the challenge of finding new ways to bring the Dunning brand to more people in and around the Ann Arbor area.

I am an avid bowler and softball player and really enjoy competitive team sports. I'm on several local associations board of directors, allowing me to be involved directly with the community. I find this rewarding and I love being a part of an events to benefit our local businesses or charities. I also have three wonderful children (although they aren't really children anymore) who are absolutely wonderful and that makes me a very proud dad!

Working for a family owned business is a huge reason I enjoy this place. Our core values ensure that both our employees and our customers have the highest degree of care in the industry. Dunning also gives back to our local community through many fine charities every year and I'm proud to be a part of that. I feel that is truly what THE DUNNING DIFFERENCE is all about!
