Nissan Keeps Saikawa As CEO, Putting Focus On Renault Ties
Nissan will keep Hiroto Saikawa as CEO in a reconstituted board that also gives Renault's top two executives seats.
The proposal, setting the table for possible friction in the automakers' alliance should shareholders approve the changes at next month's annual meeting.
Saikawa was nominated for reappointment to an expanded Nissan board as part of a sweeping slate of new directors.
The new board will also include Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard and CEO Tierry Bollore.
The appointments must be approved at the annual shareholders meeting scheduled for the end of June.
