Nissan Executive Vice President Colin Dodge to focus more on the U.S.

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 24, 2012

Nissan Executive Vice President Colin Dodge is lightening his workload, partly so he can focus more on the U.S. Colin Dodge does have a lot on his plate since he is the multitasking head of global operations in the Americas, Europe and emerging markets, and also serves as chief performance officer responsible for attaining mid-term business goals.

Nissan said that Dodge will delegate his tasks for Africa, Middle East, India and the European region to Trevor Mann, starting on Jan. 1. The reshuffle will leave Dodge with a portfolio supervising business in North and South America as well as chief performance officer. Spokesman Jeff Kuhlman said that most people consider him as an “incredibly important part of the organization.”

With the changes, he gets the chance to focus on the U.S. situation more. He added that North America plays a major role in Nissan's mid-term business plan, with CEO Carlos Ghosn achieving 10% U.S. market share in the fiscal year that ends on March 31, 2017.

Mann, who now serves as the senior vice president in charge of supply chain management, will get a promotion to executive vice president and will take on the role of chairman of Europe and growing markets to his present purchasing and supply chain duties.
