Named “Industry Leader of the Year” in 2014 by the Automotive Hall of Fame, “Marketer of the Year” by Advertising Age in 2006, and an Automotive News “All Star” in 2007, Mr. Lentz is also a member of the Executive Advisory Board for Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver (DU), his alma mater.

Lentz is spearheading:

  • Toyota North America’s construction of its first-ever North American headquarters in Plano, TX, relocating employees from several locations, including California, Kentucky and New York.
  • Toyota’s headquarters, which will total over 2 million square feet in seven buildings on a 100 acre site, will house 4,000 team members.
  • In addition, Toyota is also expanding its San Antonio truck plant to keep up with tremendous demand for its all-new Toyota Tacoma and 2016 Tundra by adding 275 jobs to its current total of 3,000 team members.
  • Last month, Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus opened its first dealership in the Austin area, Lexus of Lakeway, which employs approximately 60 people.

 

Join us to hear Mr. Lentz’s take on Toyota’s future plans in Texas, the company’s outlook on the U.S. economy and auto market, and the future of mobility.
