NBA Legend and Entrepreneur Magic Johnson Featured at Toyotas 20th Opportunity Exchange

Earvin "Magic" Johnson, NBA legend and entrepreneur, was the featured keynote speaker at Toyota's Opportunity Exchange at the Duke Energy Center in Downtown Cincinnati today. Opportunity Exchange, one of the largest minority business events in the country, is designed to provide minority business enterprises (MBEs) with the opportunity to network and develop valuable contacts with Toyota's direct suppliers. To date, the event has resulted in over $150 million worth of new contracts for minority-owned businesses.

"From a business perspective, we believe diversity provides a path to our long-term business success," said Tetsuo Agata, president and COO of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. "Our commitment to diversity recognizes the importance of developing a supply team which reflects our customers and team members throughout North America."

The event has grown from 100 guests to over 1,900 participants annually in the last 20 years. It has helped generate new business for MBEs but it also continues to help direct suppliers diversify their own supply base.
