Akio Toyoda is a Japanese business executive. He is the chairman of Toyota Motor Corporation after previously serving as the company’s president and chief executive officer (CEO). He is a great-grandson of the industrialist Sakichi Toyoda and a grandson of both the founder of Toyota Motors, Kiichiro Toyoda, and the founder of the Takashimaya department stores corporation, Shinshichi Iida. Toyoda stepped down as Toyota president and became chairman of the board on 1 April 2023. He was succeeded as CEO by Toyota’s chief branding officer, Koji Sato.
Akio Toyoda was born on 3 May 1956, in Nagoya to Shoichiro Toyoda and Hiroko (née Mitsui). He is the great-grandson of Sakichi Toyoda, founder of the Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, and grandson of Toyota Motor Corporation founder Kiichiro Toyoda.
Since the days his carpenter-farmer great-great-grandfather, Ikichi Toyoda, taught his son fabrication and carpentry, the Toyoda family line has dominated the upper management of the family businesses. Akio was reported to have been the chief contender for the family business when Katsuaki Watanabe was reassigned as Vice-Chairman in the wake of the quality control crisis.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Akio Toyoda is worth $600 million. He served as the president and CEO of Toyota Motor Corporation from 2009 to 2023. He now sits as the company’s chairman.
CNW also reports that “Akio Toyoda controlled 4,752,895 shares of Toyota stock. On the day he stepped down in April 2023, Toyota’s stock was trading at around $140 per share. At that level, Akio’s shares were worth $665 million. In January 2022, Akio Toyoda was briefly a billionaire (on paper) when Toyota stock hit $210 per share.”

analysts described him as one of several interim chief executives until Akio Toyoda’s son, Daisuke, currently in his early 30s and serving as senior vice-president of the company’s self-driving unit Woven Planet, is ready to head the group.
In March 2021, Kyodo News reported that Daisuke would marry a former star of Japan’s Takarazuka all-female musical troupe.

Daughter of Mitsui Corp executive Mamoru Tabuchi. Who knew.”
Another user, @keiko_sono had tweeted, “I had a classmate named Hiroko Tabuchi (田淵裕子）who married Akio Toyota as soon as she graduated from high school.”
