PRESIDENT HONOURED BY THE INDUSTRY
Toyota founder Kiichiro Toyoda has been inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in Detroit, USA, to recognise his extraordinary vision and entrepreneurial spirit
Toyoda is credited with expanding the textile business created by his father, Sakichi, into automotive manufacturing in 1933. His technical skills and leadership forged the foundations of a company that’s grown into one of the most respected in the world.
“Kiichiro Toyoda embodied foresight and innovation that few people in history possess, demonstrated by his significant contributions to the automotive industry,” says Ramzi Hermiz, Chairman of the Automotive Hall of Fame, which honours those who’ve made outstanding contributions to the industry.
