Trevor Mann was preparing to take a newly created senior-level position, part of Carlos Ghosn's plan for knitting the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance more closely together. That all changed Nov. 19 after Ghosn's stunning arrest in Japan.
Trevor Mann, formerly Nissan’s chief performance officer under Carlos Ghosn, will depart Mitsubishi as part of a wider management shuffle. Nissan said Mann would not be returning to its side of the alliance.
Renault said it would not seek to appoint Nissan's chairman as the automakers announced a new power-sharing agreement to defuse tension that has threatened to derail the alliance since the arrest of its former leader, Carlos Ghosn.
Nissan and alliance partners Renault and Mitsubishi are poised to restructure their partnership under a new three-way steering committee that would oversee operations and subsume joint ventures now under scrutiny following the arrest of former boss Carlos Ghosn.
