Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan) has announced structural changes, coming into effect from 1 April, impacting Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) and the Africa region.
Johan van Zyl, formerly president and CEO of TSAM, is now TSAM chairman. He will continue to function as CEO of the Europe region, based in Brussels. His role in TSAM will be of strategic nature.
Takeshi Isogaya, based in Tokyo, is CEO of Africa region.
Durban-based Andrew Kirby, currently executive VP and CEO of TSAM, is president and CEO of TSAM.
Van Zyl says, “Andrew is a very experienced, multi-talented motoring man and I am confident he will do an outstanding job as the new President and CEO of TSAM.
“The road ahead economically will not always be an easy one to travel, but I believe that with Andrew and the executive team, we will meet every challenge successfully and continue to build on its proud leadership heritage to remain an integral part of South African life for many years to come.”
