Former Englander CEO and respected industry pioneer Kevin Toman has died. He was 77. Throughout his 46-year career, Toman was a selfless leader who uplifted everyone around him with his wisdom, kindness and generosity of spirit.
“Kevin was more than a visionary executive and gifted mentor,” says Mark Kinsley, Englander CEO. “He was a caring man who improved the lives of countless people. His sparkling smile, sage advice and witty sense of humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him.”
As the leader of the organization for over a decade, Toman shepherded Englander to new heights by forging strong retail partnerships domestically and across the globe. He was beloved by colleagues and partners alike for his compassionate, people-first approach to leadership.
“Kevin always took time to listen, teach and thoughtfully guide the next generation of leaders,” Kinsley adds. “He was a shining example of humble excellence who led by lifting others up.”
While Kevin leaves behind an unmatched professional legacy, his influence on those who knew him personally leaves an even greater mark. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather whose family always came first. Condolences go out to his wife, Mary, their children and grandchildren during this difficult time.
