Begin April 1, 2017, Hiroto
Saikawa will be the new Chief Executive Officer of Nissan Motors. The decision
to appoint Saikawa was taken at the recommendation of Chairman of the Board and
Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn and the directors of the Nissan Board.
While Hiroto Saikawa will assume the position of Chief Executive Officer, Ghosn
will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors, and he will seek
a renewal of his mandate at the company's general shareholders meeting in June
This planned management
evolution follows Ghosn's leadership of the recent expansion of the
Renault-Nissan Alliance to include Mitsubishi Motors, which positions the
Alliance among the top automotive groups in terms of scale.
As Chairman of all three
Alliance companies, and as Chief Executive Officer of the Renault Group, Ghosn wants
to focus more of his attention on the expansion and stewardship of the
Alliance, as its Chairman and CEO. In this role, he will ensure that the
opportunities available to Alliance members are fully harnessed.
