Gary Convis
DETROIT -- Gary Convis, a former Toyota Motor Corp. manufacturing executive, last week was named CEO of Dana Holding Corp. Convis, 65, was appointed to Dana's board of directors in January after retiring from Toyota last year.

Before retiring, he was chairman of Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Kentucky. Convis spent 20 years with Toyota and worked in various jobs with General Motors and Ford Motor Co. earlier in his career. Convis is taking over from John Devine, Dana's executive chairman, who briefly was acting CEO. Devine took the job after former CEO Mike Burns left when Dana emerged from Chapter 11 reorganization in February.
