Toyota has announced the appointment of Martin Boyd to Vice President of Product Planning and Marketing for TMHU and Tony Miller to Vice President of Production Engineering, Design Engineering, Manufacturing and Maintenance for TIEM.
“These executives bring Toyota an extraordinary blend of leadership combined with material handling industry expertise,” said Brett Wood, President of TMHU. “Martin and Tony will be instrumental in continuing Toyota’s leadership in quality and product development initiatives for the number one selling lift truck brand in America.”
Boyd formerly served as the company’s national product planning and marketing manager.
During his 11 years at Toyota, he has played a significant role in key product launches including the Toyota 7-Series and 8-Series lift truck model lines and has helped establish strong relationships within the Toyota group of companies (TICO, TIEM, Raymond Corp. and Cesab), international Toyota distributors, suppliers and strategic partners.
He has been instrumental in the development of TMHU’s automated solutions and automated guided vehicle (AGV) business, as well as TMHU’s introduction of the Aichi line of aerial work platforms (AWP) products.
Miller previously served as TIEM’s Senior Manager, Production Engineering, Manufacturing and Maintenance at the Columbus, Ind.-based facility, which manufactures the majority of Toyota lift trucks sold in the U.S.
He assumed responsibility for the manufacturing and maintenance departments in 2009, reporting directly to TIEM’s President.
