First Outsider for Toyota Board

First Outsider for Toyota Board | Dan's Toyota Buss4 Research | Scoop.it
Toyota has appointed its first board director from outside the company in a bid to manage regional markets more effectively.
Daniel Taylor's insight:

Toyota has only ever had 1 other non-Japanese member on it's board of directors; what is their motive behind the rare decision to appoint another? Perhaps they are utilizing the knowledge an outsider may have about other geographial markets? After all, Toyota is a predominantly Japanese-led business which supplies motor vehicles globally and they have lost their place as the world's largest vehicle manufacturer to GM - not surprisingly this is where the new director has come from.

Toyota Recall Over Airbag And Wiper Faults | Dan's Toyota Buss4 Research | Scoop.it
Just days after being crowned world's top carmaker, Toyota recalls more than one million cars over airbag and wiper faults.
Daniel Taylor's insight:

More quality issues for Toyota, who had to recall 1.6m cars previously due to brake issues. This comes just a couple of days after Toyota reclaimed it's title as the most productive car manufacturer; what effect will this have on possibly already damaged customer opinions?
