Carlos Ghosn was named CEO of both Nissan and Renault in May 2005, becoming one of the most powerful people in the automotive world. However, despite being highly successful at pretty much everything he tried at Nissan, rumors have begun to circulate that he may be leaving the group in the “mid-term”.
Two of the projects that were of most interest to him turned out extremely well, and namely the Nissan GT-R and the Leaf (as well as the Renault EVs) - cars very successful in their own right. However, as an official Nissan spokesperson, Koji Okuda, warned “Ghosn has said this is the last mid-term plan he’ll commit to, meaning he may not stay here for the next mid-term period. We need to prepare for his possible departure within a five-year period.

If Ghosn does leave, he will leave a gigantic pair of Wellingtons for his successor to fill. Sadly, very few people in the world will have feet big enough, and if he does leave, what will happen to Nissan’s current projects and direction? More details of the move will be revealed tomorrow, at the annual shareholders' meating.
