Nissan and Renault Name New CEOs

Just this year, we saw two chief executive officers make their exit from Nissan. Recently, the company announced that they have finally chosen someone who will officially take the leadership position and that’s Makoto Uchida.

The announcement that Uchida is the next CEO of Nissan came this Tuesday. He is currently the company’s head of its China business.

It should be noted that the Japan-based company just removed Carlos Ghosn last April following a series of controversies arising from his alleged financial misconduct. The allegations led to his arrest in November last year.

Ghosn’s replacement, Hiroto Saikawa was also ousted barely a month ago due to an alleged pay scandal. He was heavily criticized too for his failure to support Nissan’s merger with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV.

Uchida is only 53 years old upon his new appointment. He served as president of the company’s Chinese joint venture in April 2018. Nissan is hopeful that he will be a key in repairing their severed ties with Renault.

Speaking of Renault, its board announced an interim CEO for the company as well. They just fired Thierry Bollore on Friday following the announcement of Nissan’s change in leadership. Taking over the French firm temporarily is Clotilde Delbos who has been with Renault since 2012 and has served as the company’s chief financial officer in 2016.

Delbos is said to be a supporter of Renault’s merger with Nissan. Paired with Uchida, the people within their respective companies and the French government are hoping that the Nissan-Renault full merger will still push through, and possibly increase their ties with Mitsubishi Motors.
