For the second year in a row, Park Ave employees organized a toy & gift drive for the kids of Tomorrow's Childrens Institute at Hackensack University Medical Center.  The overwhelming generosity of our employees, as well as that of our customers cannot be put into words.

Congratulations to Wayne Carenza
If you've purchased a car from Park Ave BMW in the last 30 years, chances are you know Wayne Carenza.

Wayne started his long automotive career with us back in 1982.  That year, Park Ave BMW's original and namesake location (on Park Ave in Rutherford) was completely destroyed by a fire in which, thankfully, no one was even hurt.  Park Ave BMW was in need of a new facility and moved into the Maywood Volkswagen building at 250 West Passaic Street in Maywood.  Wayne, at the time, was an employee of Maywood VW, and so you can accurately say that Wayne has been in Maywood even longer than Park Ave BMW.
Wayne's successful sales career at Park Ave BMW and his genuine concern for customers have long been recognized by BMW of North America and he has served and continues to serve on many advisory committees.
Park Ave BMW has been fortunate to witness Wayne's life unfold and grow with his marriage to his wife Nora and the birth of their two children.  Carolyn graduated from Rutgers in 2010 with a degree in Music and John turns 23 this June.  Where does the time go?
Through his hard work and dedication, Wayne was promoted to Sales Manager in 1990 and then to General Manager in 2006.
Wayne's continuous presence, commanding knowledge of the business, easy-going manner and genuine concern for his customers keeps people coming back year after year.  We recently utilized Wayne, along with other employees, in our TV and radio spots.  Wayne's phone started ringing off the hook with people calling to tell him they'd just seen him on TV or heard him on the radio.   Everyone knows Wayne!

We congratulate and thank you, Wayne, for your 30 years of service to Park Ave BMW. 

We know Wayne would love to hear from you so feel free to drop him a note at wayne@parkavebmw.com.
