Toyota Alters Roles of Top Management, Promotes Diversity of Executives

 

 

Toyota City, Japan, March 4, 2015—Working toward achieving the Global Vision announced in 2011, Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) will make substantial changes to its executive structure in Japan.

The changes, which will take effect on April 1 this year, are part of Toyota’s ongoing efforts to encourage sustainable growth and further improve its products and services around the world. They will build on changes made in April 2013, which created business units and reorganized the company’s regional operations.

Details of these and other organizational and executive changes can be found below.

 

Faster decision-making and enhanced administration

Broader responsibility for executive vice presidents

Currently, executive vice presidents are responsible for their respective business units and key functions. Starting April 1, they will oversee TMC in its entirety, carrying out operations and administration from a mid-to-long-term perspective.

Greater decision-making authority for senior managing officers and below

From April 1, executives of the senior managing officer level and below will be responsible for the business units, regional operations and key functions. This will enable prompt decision-making by allowing the heads of business units, regions and key functions to make proactive decisions based on realities on the ground.

 

Enhanced connections with Toyota Group companies

Toyota aims to enhance its connections with Toyota Group companies through exchanges of executives between companies.

 

Greater diversity among executives

By appointing talented people from affiliates outside Japan to executive positions, Toyota aims to foster innovation by enabling people from many different backgrounds to contribute and provide input.

- First appointment of a non-Japanese executive vice president

- First appointment of a female non-Japanese executive (first female managing officer)
