Kenichi Yamamoto (played a key role in developing Mazda's rotary engine)

Yamamoto spearheaded the design of the first overhead valve engine, which overnight established Mazda in the passenger car market.

Yamamoto also had the vision to see that the motor industry was devoid of any revolutionary improvements. He believed the rotary engine was the radical departure that would change the status quo. His vision for rotary was not about niche products. Yamamoto wanted to mass produce a rotary engine sports car. Kenichi Yamamoto went on to become Mazda’s Director of Research and Development and later Chairman of Mazda Motor Corporation from 1978 until 1982.
