Nissan CEO Says Search for His Replacement Should Be Accelerated
Saikawa takes responsibility for crisis, will accept pay cut
Ghosn’s successor doesn’t give time frame for stepping aside

Good luck getting any foreigner to join as CEO after what happened to Ghosn. In fact, I think there would be quite a few potential candidates even in Japan who might become fearful and decline.

I hear that so far three robots and an android have also declined. One of the 'bots disassembled itself when offered the job.

Indeed. Ghosn did one hell of a job turning around the company and then the scandal happened, out of the blue. Whether the allegations are true or not will be interesting….

If it were true, it still makes me wonder how such a large company which must have an army of lawyers and accountants could allow it to happen. Or, if they turned a blind eye to it until some folks thought the time was right to strike (e.g. fear of a Renault Nissan merger so that Nissan could never free themselves of their Renault masters).

Indeed, esp. foreigners given what's happened to Carlos Ghosn.

It seems like they need someone adept at turnarounds like a Carlos Ghosn again.

This was in the news the other day but the original articles were behind a paywall. Not sure if this happened.
https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2019/ ... t-problem/
On Tuesday, a subset of Nissan’s board intends to request access to a list of 80 Nissan employees suspected of aiding former Chairman Carlos Ghosn in his alleged financial malfeasance. Assembled by Nissan’s former audit chief, Christina Murray, and company, the document compiles actions taken by staffers believed to have assisted Ghosn directly or attempted to impede the resulting investigations.

Nissan on gradual recovery path, incoming CEO Uchida tells staff
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/nissan-r ... 42351.html
In picking Uchida as the new global head of Nissan, the company's board has chosen an executive known internally for close ties to top shareholder Renault and for a frank, straight-talking manner that has marked him as an outsider.

According to one long-time associate, who spoke on condition of anonymity, Uchida is known for his unflagging work ethic and relentless focus on cost control. The source described Uchida as direct and to the point in conversations, a "foreigner with a Japanese face".

Uchida joined the car maker mid-career in 2003, a rarity in a country where top executives usually spend their entire working lives at the same company.
