Ghosn Tightens Grip Over Nissan-Renault as COO Job Fades

Being No. 2 to Carlos Ghosn, chief executive officer at Nissan Motor Co. and Renault SA, is no longer the exclusive job it used to be.

Ghosn yesterday announced he’ll get rid of Nissan’s chief operating officer position -- currently held by Toshiyuki Shiga -- two months after doing so at the French carmaker he also runs. Following the management overhaul, Ghosn’s No. 2s will be four executive vice presidents at Yokohama, Japan-based Nissan.
