Posted: September 24, 2007

Shoichiro Toyoda, honorary chairman of Toyota Motor Corp. (and son of its founder), recently credited Sean Traynor (Takasago USA president) among the key Americans who have made the car maker a success. As onetime CEO of GST AutoLeather, Traynor aided Toyota in developing good relationships with suppliers. According to Automotive News, the comments came as Toyoda addressed a gathering at Washington, DC's Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, commemorating Toyota's 50th anniversary of doing business in the United States.
