Toyota’s Convis to Retire

Press Named to Toyota Board – The Car Connection

Toyota’s Gary Convis, a leader who I have admired greatly, is retiring in June:

Toyota also announced that Gary Convis will retire in June from his positions as a managing officer and chairman of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc.

There is a quote from Convis that I often use in training sessions and presentations:

“You respect people, you listen to them, you work together. You don’t blame them. Maybe the process was not set up well, so it was easy to make a mistake.”

Hopefully he can do more to educate us about the Toyota leadership mindset after his retirement.
