Carlos Ghosn WON'T Leave Nissan
Well, it appears that the report was actually false, as company officials told various media publications across the web that Ghosn will remain Nissan CEO and there are no intentions to change this for the time being. Nissan spokeswoman Katherine Zachary told Autoblog that the report is not true, but hasn't commented too much on the subject.
But there's nothing new in here. Carlos Ghosn said back in May 2009 that he won't resign as Nissan CEO until the Japanese company returns to profitability. At that time, Nissan posted a $1.4 billion net loss for 2008, which clearly indicated that the economic crisis was affecting the Japanese business as well.
Carlos Ghosn had no plans to leave, whatsoever. "If you leave now, you wouldn't be leaving - you would be deserting," Ghosn said in an interview after Nissan posted its results.
"We are focusing on our own business for the moment, on our own cash, on our own profitability, leaving the opportunities on the side. When we're back to profit, feeling the pickup and (feel) that the financial turmoil is behind us, then we may think again, but not for the moment," the CEO was quoted as saying by Reuters back in 2009.
