The new U.S. structure is similar to those
employed by Toyota Motor Co <7203.T> with its Toyota and Lexus
brands and Nissan Motor Co <7201.T> with its Nissan and Infiniti
John Mendel will head a new American Honda Auto Division.
Reporting to Mendel are Michael Accavitti, senior vice president
and general manager of American Honda's Acura Division, and Jeff
Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the
company's Honda Division.
Previously, the company's U.S. operations were organized by
function rather than brand.
