In rememberence
Last year we had two programs focused upon Honda of America.  Paul Ingrassia, prize winning journalist for the auto industry joined us to introduce the first program featuring Shige Yoshida, retired Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer of Honda of America Manufacturing.  Paul passed away 9/16 after his battle with cancer.  

The Wall Street Journal carried an obit HERE and an editorial HERE.
