After finishing its bankruptcy and removing the albatross that was its former car business from around its neck, Suzuki Motor of America is ready to get down to business and start selling some motorcycles, ATV’s, and marine equipment.
Helping to bring that new transition to Suzuki, Toru Muraki will leave his post as Executive Vice President, and become Suzuki Motor of America’s new President (similarly, Takuya Sato has been named Executive Vice President, in charge of overseeing the company’s marine operations).
An avid motorcyclist, Muraki joined Suzuki’s powersport business in 2010, and lead the division’s motorcycle and ATV marketing efforts. “I am eager to continue Suzuki Motor of America’s steadfast commitment to the powersports industry,” Muraki said simply in the company’s press release.
“Toru Muraki’s global motorcycle experience further positions Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. to succeed,” said Tak Iwatsuki, Suzuki Motor of America, Inc’s Chairman. “New product introductions, strong dealer support and care for the customer will remain our focus. And our leadership group is well-qualified to help us reach our goals.”
