    Born and raised in Carson City, Nevada, Anderson holds a bachelor’s degree in Japanese from Brigham Young University and an MBA with emphasis in human resources management from Indiana University. His business experience and strong, spoken Japanese language and culture skills led him to management roles with several companies. He was with OEM Automotive Industry, a Toyota supplier, for 22 years before returning to the U.S. where he led implementation of Toyota Production System across five North American operations, an effort that contributed to the 10 most profitable years in company history.
