Ohio Wesleyan Executive-in-Residence, Retired Honda Executive to Discuss International Business Careers

April 20, 2007

Toshikata Amino, a retired executive vice president for Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., will discuss “How to Become an International Business Executive” during a free public lecture at 3:10 p.m. April 25 in the Bayley Room of Ohio Wesleyan University’s Beeghly Library, 43 Rowland Ave.

“I would like to encourage young people to expand their interest in international business and share some tips to become a successful global business manager,” says Amino, who also serves as the executive-in-residence for Ohio Wesleyan’s Woltemade Center for Economics, Business, and Entrepreneurship. Amino has been a frequent guest speaker and mentor at the university since 1989.

During his discussion, Amino will focus on aspects of career development in international business based on his own experiences. During nearly three decades with Honda, Amino worked on assignments in both Japan and the United States. He was involved in the construction of Honda’s first American auto plant in Marysville, Ohio, where he worked as executive vice president until he retired in 1995. Since his retirement, Amino has taught not only at Ohio Wesleyan, but also at Kansai University of International Studies in Japan and The Ohio State University.
