Thomas Bailey sent a message to Akio Toyoda President and CEO, Toyota Motor Corporation - email address that said:
Hello Akio, Im quite sure you dont remember me. I met you when you were an intern at A.G.Becker Inc, Boston, Ma. during your Harvard years.
I was a broker in the same office selling money market securities to large Boston institutions.
I was impressed with your easy grasp of everyday financial transactions.
Also, I knew you would one day be in the position you are, serving in a company started by your remarkable family.
I just watched your Prime Minister, Abe, and our new business trained president join in a new comraderie of joint
aims to grow capitalism, prosperity, and peace for both countries.
Oh, one more thing...I am still driving a 1997 Lexus E300, with 143,000 miles.
Honestly, its the best car I have ever owned!
Thanks for reading my comments, Akio, and continued good luck
Best regards, Thomas Bailey
