With more than 150 roles to fill, Mitsubishi Motors to become a major employer in Middle Tennessee area
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA), the fastest-growing Asian brand in the U.S. for the second consecutive year*, is in the process of relocating its headquarters from Cypress, California, to Franklin, Tennessee, and is in the midst of hiring to fill more than 150 open positions across the company.
“We’ve said more than once that this move to Franklin is the most visible part of our plan to reinvent every aspect of Mitsubishi Motors in the U.S.,” said Fred Diaz, MMNA’s president and CEO. “This is the most comprehensive reimaging we’ve ever been through in the U.S., and to make it work we’re seeking the best and brightest from both within and outside the auto industry. Our formal recruiting efforts kick off with this event, and we encourage anyone eager to help write the roadmap for our future to join us.”
While MMNA has seen an ongoing strengthening of the business for multiple years – six straight years of annual sales gains, the last two years now over 100,000 sales, and retaining its “fastest-growing Asian brand” title for the second year – it is the past 18 months that have seen the greatest evolution. Some include:
– 80 percent of the leadership team is new to the company or newly promoted to the role, bringing new experiences, backgrounds and a diversity of thought to the team
– 34 new dealer partners have been appointed across the country
– MMNA’s regional network has been expanded from two offices to four (Cypress, Calif.; Irving, Texas; Swedesboro, NY; Lake Mary, Fla.)
