Why I admire Akio Toyoda

Akio ToyodaAkio Toyoda is a certificated test driver, too.

If anyone here subscribes to “Fortune” magazine, you might have seen this. On volume 185, number 3, the cover story was “Toyota Back On Track” As most of you may know, Toyota has been on a rough road for the last years. People are beginning to doubt Toyota quality. And Toyota went through almost every large company crippling event I know of. From massive recalls to natural disasters. Yet Toyota prevailed. With the leadership of the company founder’s grandson, Akio Toyoda. I admire Akio Toyoda because he is a strong leader with great compassion. Who else would recall 3.8 million vehicles just because of one fatal car crash?
