Starting April 1, Tom Doll will take his new position as the president of Subaru of America. However, he will still be the COO and CFO. Doll, who is now 57 years old, is the highest-ranked non-Japanese executive at Subaru's U.S. unit. In 1982, he became a part of Subaru of America. For the last four years, sales records were set by Subaru of America.

Its market share in the U.S. also doubled since 2008 until last year’s 2.3%. Takeshi Tachimori, CEO of Subaru of America, had also served as the president. Tachimori said that Doll's promotion is in recognition of his excellent work in taking its U.S. operations to reap new successes.

Tachimori said that as Doll has a “deep understanding” of SOA’s operations, he is perfect for taking on the president role and for taking responsibility for its profits. In 1985-1988, Doll served as the manager of Subaru treasury operations.

In 1988, he was given a promotion to be its director of treasury operations while in 1989, he became the director of accounting. He was named vice president of business and strategic planning in 1991. He got promoted to CFO in 1994 and he also got named COO in 2009. Before being a part of Subaru of America, Doll worked for Arthur Young & Co., an accounting firm.
