Yes, we're caught up in the Chicago Auto Show buzz, but this is some big news from Toyota's corporate office. Katsuaki Wantanabe, 62 will replace current president Fujio Cho, 68 and Akio Toyoda, grandson of the company's founder, has been appointed executive vice president. The executive shuffle is meant to introduce change and promote younger managers. There are hopes that the promotion of a member of the Toyoda will also raise morale.
