Kouji Sato, chief branding officer, will become the new CEO, Toyota said. Representative director Takeshi Uchiyamada will drop his chairman title.

The Japanese automaker will hold a news conference at 4 p.m. (7 a.m. GMT) to explain the leadership reshuffle.

At the shareholder meeting in June last year, Toyoda said he was “thinking about timing and the selection of a successor” when asked about succession planning.
