  • David Virgell
    Customer Service Manager

    I moved from Baltimore to Wisconsin in 2010. I was inspired by a saying my Brother told me. That was "In order to change your life you have to change your life" I moved and have not regretted a single day. I live by motto "The best Way to get what you want is to help someone get what they want". I am known as MR Super Fantastic and I always strive to have a positive and optimistic attitude. I think that's Why I am the CRM for East Madison Toyota. My passion is music production and there is not a day goes by I am not thinking of Music. You may also find me making the occasional video for the dealership or unique art  of our amazing staff. I enjoy my life with my lovely wife Kasia and our 3 Boston Terriers they make for a very Happy Home. East Madison Toyota is my second family and I look forward to coming to work everyday to make a difference for our team and our amazing customer base.

  • Mark Sisson *
    New Car Sales Manager

    Mark has been with East Madison Toyota since 2014.  He expects to see many more years with EMT, mainly because he loves deadlines and the whooshing sounds they make as they fly by.  He likes to live his life ¼ mile at a time, but that sometimes runs at odds with his unusual love of high gas mileage so he is  looking for that special Prius that will achieve 60 MPG and run a 9-second Quarter Mile.  You can find him occasionally online with the secret love of his life, his PS5, where he lives out the great advice his grandfather gave to him.  "Hard work never killed anyone, but why take that chance?"  Also, since you have come this far reading this stellar bio, Mark has one more nugget for you to live by.  "If you are wearing a Nirvana shirt but never listen to them…. STOP"

For every time you get knocked down, there is the opportunity to STAND UP!"

  • Sam Jaramillo *
    Sales Consultant

    "Born and raised right here in the beautiful city of Madison, Wisconsin. I hope to be at EMT for years to come since it constantly has a type of energy that I love. I enjoy all different kinds of sports, watching and playing. Basketball and Football are my two favorites, although I don't necessarily root for the Wisconsin teams. I think of myself as a very goofy person as I am always looking for a way to make people smile and laugh. When I am not working, you can find me out on a run with my German Shepherd or spending time out and about with family and friends. Meeting new people is my specialty!"

  • TJ Richards
    Finance and Insurance

    Born and raised just north of Milwaukee, I have been in the Madison area for most of my adult life since attending UW.  There were stints in Illinois and Kentucky, but there is something about this area that just pulled me back.  I started with East Madison Toyota in 2017 after working the hardest job anyone can have, and that was stay-at-home parent.  While it was amazing to get to spend that time with my daughter, I realized when she was starting to toddle around that she needed more than I could provide.  I was fortunate to get the opportunity to come here and join a great team, and can't believe how much everyone is willing to help each other.
