Toyota to name Prius developer Uchiyamada its next chairman?
If the move is confirmed – it might happen as soon as this year, according to Reuters – Uchiyamada would replace Fujio Cho, Toyota's chairman for the past six years, who would move to an advisory role. Cho spent seven years overseeing Toyota's manufacturing operations in Kentucky as well as spearheading manufacturing efforts in Texas, France and China. Company president Akio Toyoda would maintain day-to-day charge of Toyota.
