Toyota’s Convis Retires
This was already announced, so maybe his retirement has just now taken effect, Gary Convis, the former leader of the Toyota Georgetown plant (TMMK):
“Gary really knows how to listen,” Steve St. Angelo, Georgetown plant president, said, in an in-house newsletter. “He absorbs facts and details, and I will miss having him as a mentor. However, even after his retirement, he will continue with Toyota as an executive adviser, so I'm sure we'll stay in touch.”
St. Angelo said Convis' management style was a perfect fit for the Toyota plant.
“Gary leads people the way Toyota manages business,” he said. “He empowers them to do better and he displays a genuine respect for the work they do.”
