Toyota Racing Development has named Senior Vice President David Wilson as acting president & general manager of TRD.
In this role, Wilson will be responsible for all of TRD’s day-to-day operations and activities. These include engineering, manufacturing, engine build and supply chain management.
Wilson also will continue in his role as SVP for TRD’s administration, finance and facilities department.
The news follows former President Lee White's announcement this week that he would retire at the end of the 2013 race season.
Due to family health care needs, White stepped down from his daily duties and has since vacated the position of president and general manager of TRD.
White had been with TRD for more than 15 years and held responsibility for all TRD activities in North America. He will continue as a Special Advisor to TRD and Toyota Motorsports until his planned retirement at the end of the season.
