Marvin Runyon and his Nissan team brought the automobile industry to Tennessee, creating jobs and better lives for tens of thousands of families. They built from scratch the largest and most efficient car and truck plant in North America. For an encore, Marvin stabilized TVA rates. Then, he made the U.S. Post Office profitable. Tennessee has never produced a better chief executive officer. Honey and I have lost a great friend.
