Ritsuo Shingo started his career with Toyota Motor Company in 1970 and retired in 2012. He helped during the start-up stage of five Toyota manufacturing plants outside Japan, and spent more than 13 years in various roles at Toyota in the legal, public relations and purchasing departments.
He spent more than 5 years in the US, starting up the Toyota Detroit office and the Toyota Kentucky as a purchasing agent. He also worked at Toyota Motor UK before returning to head up the China department in Japan.
In 1998 Toyota’s first Joint Venture in China was Sichuan Toyota Motor. Ritsuo became the first president of this joint venture. Ten years later he had established the joint venture between Hino Motors and Guang-Qi Motors and became the first president of that joint venture as well.
