September 18, 2006

Toshi Amino, retired executive vice president for Honda of America, will present a Woltemade Center lecture, “China’s Automobile Industry,” on Oct. 3 at 3:10 p.m. in the Bayley Room of Beeghly Library at Ohio Wesleyan University. The talk, which is part of the Robert L. Milligan Leaders in Business Lecture Series, is free and open to the public.

Amino serves as executive-in-residence for OWU’s Woltemade Center for Economics Business and Entrepreneurship. The center’s mission includes promoting business ethics, helping students to link theory with practice and providing free lectures to OWU and the area communities.

During his nearly 30 years with Honda, Amino worked on many assignments in Japan and the United States. He moved to Ohio in 1981 to be involved with the construction of Honda’s first American auto plant in Marysville, where he worked as executive vice president until he retired in 1995. Since his retirement, he has taught at Kansai University of International Studies in Japan, The Ohio State University and OWU. He is the executive-in-residence and distinguished fellow at the OSU’s Fisher College of Business.

Outside of his career, Amino is associated with various organizations such as the Japan-America Society of Central Ohio, Kyoto Non-profit Center and Boy Scouts of America.
