MEMBER OF THE WEEK

September 23, 2021

As a member and former co-chair of AAEI’s Nominating Committee, Yuko Hanada of Nissan North America, Inc., has quietly shepherded AAEI’s leadership development for years. Yuko volunteers her time developing AAEI’s governance ballots from start to finish, a process that takes about 6 months. Yuko works with other Nominating Committee members to find and nominate AAEI members for committee co-chair opportunities, too. Yuko’s commitment to AAEI’s leadership provides the keystone of the Association’s longevity and success. Her work is critical to the function of AAEI’s governance.

When she’s not volunteering for AAEI, Yuko serves Nissan North America as one of its Government Affairs representatives, monitoring and guiding regulations which impact vehicles and parts distribution for its export operations.
