Nissan Motor Co. no longer has an office staffed by an inner circle of people working for the chief executive officer following the arrest and exit of former Chairman Carlos Ghosn, a person with knowledge of the change said.

The team was abolished as of April 1, said the person, asking not to be identified because the information hasn’t been made public yet. Although the office existed while Ghosn was Nissan’s CEO and was kept intact under his successor Hiroto Saikawa, it’s not clear when it was established.
