Andy Palmer leaving Nissan to become new Aston Martin CEO

Article by Christian A., on September 2, 2014

Although people saw him as the future CEO for Nissan, Andy Palmer a.k.a. company’s chief planning officer, is going to leave the company and according to our sources he will be the new CEO of another car manufacturer. The big surprise is that Andy Palmer is going to be the new CEO of Aston Martin, but there aren’t official details for the moment.

Palmer will be replaced by Renault Executive Vice President Philippe Klein and as expected he will to Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn. Regarding Aston Martin, the British company has been without a CEO since Ulrich Bez stepped down last November, after turning 70.

An Aston Martin spokeswoman declined to make any comments regarding Palmer’s departure from Nissan but we do expect an official press release these days. Andy Palmer joined Nissan back in 1995 and this is a big loss for Nissan as he is the man who created their strategy.

Last year, Palmer was named Nissan’s global No.3 executive, behind Carlos Ghosn and Hiroto Saikawa. After de Nysschen decided to leave Infiniti for Cadillac, Palmer was also the operational head of the Infiniti brand but Nissan has now named Jose Munoz to take care of the company.

Some of Andy Palmer’s projects were the Nissan Leaf electric vehicle, the NV200 New York taxi as well we the push for autonomous vehicles. [source: Bloomberg.com]
