Former GM executive Mark Hogan retained as an adviser to Toyota

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 19, 2010

Toyota Motor Corp. in North America will continue to have former General Motors executive Mark Hogan as one of its advisers. This was confirmed by Toyota spokeswoman Mira Sleilati in New York; however, she declined to reveal Hogan’s specific role. Since last month, there have been speculations about Hogan’s move to Toyota.

Hogan has been a part of GM’s management for 30 years where he worked in manufacturing, vehicle development, small-car planning, Web commerce and foreign market development.

In an e-mail to Automotive News, Sleilati said that no details have decided on. She said that Toyota has a history of working with outside experts to get their perspective on the industry and other business areas.

Hogan is currently listed as CEO of Vehicle Production Group LLC, a company based in Miami that develops and markets wheelchair-accessible taxis and other specialty vehicles. Hogan has actually worked with Toyota previously.

In the late 1980s, Hogan was a GM manager. At some point, he served as comptroller and manager of general affairs at New United Motor Manufacturing Inc., GM’s 50-50 alliance with Toyota in Fremont, Calif.

He returned to GM later on and throughout the years, he was promoted to group vice president for Advanced Vehicle Development, President of GM do Brazil, President of e-GM, and general manager of the GM small car group. Afterward, Hogan became the worldwide president of industry supplier Magna International Inc. [via autonews - sub. required]
