TOKYO – Toyota named Koji Sato as its new president, CEO, and operating officer Thursday, replacing third-generation chief executive Akio Toyoda — who will become board chairman.

The Japanese car giant, currently the world’s top-selling automaker, said in a statement that the changes to its executive structure will be effective from April 1.
