For two decades Carlos Ghosn stood astride the global auto industry. His tenure atop Renault SA ended in humbler fashion, in a cramped prison cell on the outskirts of Tokyo.

The 64-year-old resigned as chairman and chief executive officer of the largest French carmaker late on Jan. 23, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told Bloomberg TV in an interview on Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
