Nissan offers Renault Chief Executive seats on board committees

Posted by

Thierry Bolloré, CEO of Renault, has been offered seats in various committees of the Nissan board. The offer comes after Chair of Renault, Jean-Dominique Senard,  communicated to Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa, that Renault intended to block corporate governance reform. If passed at the company’s upcoming AGM, the reform would allow the board to move away from a governance structure with an independent board of statutory auditors. Bolloré currently sits on the board of Nissan along with Senard.
