Toshio Suzuki (鈴木敏夫 Suzuki Toshio?) is a long-time colleague of Hayao Miyazaki and a former CEO of Studio Ghibli. As a producer and an executive managing director at the studio, Suzuki has been a driving force behind the studio's success. According to Miyazaki, "If it were not for Mr. Suzuki, there wouldn't have been Studio Ghibli."
Born in 1948, Suzuki was an editor at Tokuma's animation magazine Animage. He and Miyazaki met when Miyazaki began to serialise the Nausicaa manga in the magazine in 1982. Suzuki then became one of the committee members to make Nausicaa into a motion picture, and he has since been involved in all the Ghibli movies. He later became the chief editor at Animage, and in 1989 he officially moved to Studio Ghibli. He has produced all the Ghibli movies since that move. Suzuki also co-produced Ghost in the Shell 2 - Innocence, a film partially funded by Studio Ghibli.
