CYPRESS, Calif. - Michael Tocci, senior vice president sales, fleet and distribution of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) today announced the hiring of Charles Johnpeter as the company's regional director, North Central Region. Johnpeter succeeds Casey Griffin, who resigned from the position last week.

Johnpeter comes from Hyundai Motor America where he served as vice president of Hyundai's Central Region. He began his career with Hyundai in 1985 in Atlanta, Georgia, as market representation manager, then moved to Hyundai's Central Region where he served as regional sales manager, general manager, and eventually vice president.

"I am very confident in the senior management at Mitsubishi Motors North America, and look forward to joining a great team. I know the Midwest market and many of its dealers well, and I'm ready to be part of Mitsubishi's turnaround there," said Johnpeter.

Prior to joining Hyundai, Johnpeter worked for nine years at Ford Motor Company in the sales area. He is a graduate of DePauw University in Indiana, and earned a Masters Degree in International Business from American Graduate School of International Management.
