Timing right for Cartier

Nissan has named Guillaume Cartier as its new chairperson for the Africa, Middle East, India, Europe and Oceania (AMIEO) region.

He will take up his role on 1 April.

He said: “I am thrilled to be leading this culturally rich and diverse region into a period of unprecedented change for the automotive industry, and with a refreshed range of Nissan models and technologies coming to the market.

“A new period of sustainable growth is beginning for Nissan, as we continue to progress the Nissan NEXT transformation plan, accelerating our journey towards a fully electrified line-up in Europe by 2023, and bringing our enhanced product line-up to our growing loyal customer base in Africa, the Middle East, India and Oceania.”

Cartier will replace Gianluca De Ficchy, who takes on a new senior role within the Alliance.
