Default Nissan: Carlos Ghosn steps down as CEO, will remain Chairman

Carlos Ghosn has decided to step down as the Chief Executive Officer of Nissan Motor Co. in order to concentrate on the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance. Ghosn, however, will continue to be the Chairman of the Japanese automotive manufacturing company.

Carlos Ghosn (62) is a big name in the automotive world and is considered to be responsible for the company's turnaround from a near bankruptcy situation in 1999. Under Ghosn's leadership, Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance is currently the fourth largest automotive group in the world.

Hiroto Saikawa, the current co-CEO of Nissan has been appointed to fill up the vacated position. Ghosn will be handing over the CEO post to Saikawa on April 1, 2017. The outgoing CEO had himself nominated Saikawa to be his successor.

Nissan had acquired a controlling stake in Mitsubishi in October 2016. Ghosn will now be working on expansion of the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance in order to improve the group's global market share.

Let's hope that they focus a little more on the Nissan and Mitsubishi brands ! It's a little sad what they have reduced Mitsubishi to in India!

I think we have only one dealership in Bangalore!

Well, he did have a lot on his plate. This is a positive announcement that will allow him to focus more on the group overall.

Worldwide, not just India. Mitsubishi is a bargain basement brand in many countries.

Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn Has Been Targeted in French Diesel Probe.
Quote:
France's consumer fraud watchdog told prosecutors that Renault boss Carlos Ghosn should be held responsible for the carmaker's suspected diesel emissions cheating.
Quote:
The French test program, overseen by an investigating committee, has so far led to action against Renault and three others: PSA Group, Fiat Chrysler and VW.
In its Renault submission, the DGCCRF emphasized Ghosn's managerial responsibility
