Joseph Cammiso is Brand Protection Manager at Toyota Motor North America, headquartered in Plano, TX, and a past President of the Automotive Anti-Counterfeiting Council (A2C2). Mr. Cammiso is responsible for developing and implementing a comprehensive Brand Protection strategy for Toyota in the U.S. and collaborating with affiliates in other regions on the company’s global effort to combat counterfeit auto parts.
In 2015, Mr. Cammiso was instrumental in the formation of A2C2 and remains a champion of the council’s mission to promote cooperation among automakers to eliminate the sale of counterfeit parts that are dangerous to U.S. consumers, and a threat to public health and safety. A2C2 is currently comprised of 10 U.S. automakers, who make up over 90% of the nation’s auto industry. Its members are the front-line managers and analysts who battle counterfeits daily.
In his current role at Toyota, Mr. Cammiso has worked with Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and other law enforcement agencies to help stop the flow and distribution of counterfeit parts into the U.S. He has engaged on-line marketplaces to increase awareness of the risks of counterfeits and enhance efforts to keep counterfeit parts, especially counterfeit airbag parts, off marketplaces entirely.
Mr. Cammiso earned his master’s degree in Business Administration and Management from California State University, Long Beach and has over 25 years of automotive operations and supply chain experience.
