NOD Welcomes Toyota Financial Services President and Chief Executive Officer to Board of Directors
NEW YORK (May 19, 2020) – The National Organization on Disability (NOD) today announced Mark Templin, president and CEO of Toyota Financial Services, as the newest member to join its Board of Directors. Mr. Templin will join 19 other civic and corporate leaders from across the country working to advance disability inclusion in the workforce.
“This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, one of the most comprehensive and sweeping pieces of civil rights legislation in our nation’s history,” said NOD Chairman, Gov. Tom Ridge. “Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to roll back many of the gains we have made since then. Mark’s arrival to our Board of Directors comes at a critical time. We will need to tap his considerable skills, along with those of our entire Board of Directors, to work with the disability community to ensure people with disabilities are not excluded from the economic recovery once our nation has been able to defeat the virus. We thank Mark for his leadership.”
Mark Templin oversees all Toyota Financial Services activities in North and South America as well as in Australia and New Zealand. He is also the chief executive officer of Toyota Insurance Management Solutions, the director and group chief operating officer of Toyota Financial Services Corporation, and has served as chairman of the board of Toyota Motor Credit Corporation since May 2016.
“The National Organization on Disability is performing vital work to advance employment opportunities for the 20 million Americans with disabilities,” said Mark Templin. “I look forward to working alongside their dedicated group of leaders to make progress on this crucial issue.”
Since joining Toyota Motor Sales (TMS) in 1990, Templin has held a number of positions including serving as group vice president and general manager of the Lexus Division for TMS, overseeing all aspects of Lexus’ U.S. automotive operations, including sales and marketing, retail development, customer satisfaction and product planning.

Before joining Toyota, Templin held several positions at General Motors Corporation. Templin earned a Bachelor of Science degree at University of Central Missouri where he studied automotive technology.
