After joining GM's overseas project development group, I started to take on various projects. Our group functioned almost as a group of consultants, each handling his or her area of interest, working with other staffs and operatations. Kei and I were the Japan duo. Without much knowledge about the industry, with Kei's support, I started my own involvement with various projects. This episode traces my involvement in various initiatives that covered vehicle auctions, new engine selection/development, component businesses, vehicle assembly project, and selling cars in Japan, and meeting people that eventually helped shape my direction and career in the years to come.
