Nissan returns to the management structure it had before the global economic crisis

Article by Christian A., on May 31, 2011

If there’s a message that Nissan North America wants to tell the public about its management structure, it’s that everything’s back to normal.

What this means exactly is that with Carlos Tavares’ departure as Nissan’s chairman of the Americas to serve as Renault’s chief operating officer, Nissan’s management structure will be similar to what it was before the worldwide economic crisis struck in late 2008.

Bill Krueger, formerly a manufacturing executive at Toyota and General Motors, was recruited by Nissan in 2005.

Krueger will take on the role of senior North American executive. Starting June 13, Krueger will have the added title of vice chairman and will handle day-to-day operating issues. Krueger has a wide range of functions at Nissan.

At the same, he serves as the senior vice president of manufacturing, purchasing, supply chain management and customer satisfaction. Colin Dodge, Nissan’s multitasking executive who is based in Japan, has been named as the management committee chairman over the region.

He will have to fly to North America to attend meetings. Aside from that, Dodge is still the chairman of Nissan’s operations in Africa, India, the Middle East and Europe. In addition, he continues to function as Nissan’s chief recovery officer, a role made to stem the flow of its financial losses during the global economy crisis in 2008.

Nissan North America has gone back to having a management team that’s composed mostly of senior vice president-level executives and ran by a vice chairman.
