Article by Christian Andrei, on September 10, 2014

Back in July, we announced you folks that Johan de Nysschen left Infiniti in order to become the new president of Cadillac. Well, after few months, Infiniti has a new president as the company poached BMW veteran Roland Krueger. His role at BMW was a senior vice president in charge of the German sales region.

Krueger is expected to bring a touch of German flair to Infiniti and he will be based at company’s global headquarters in Hong Kong, while reporting to Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.

For those who don’t know, Infiniti has some leadership problems as the company. After de Nysschen left the company to become Cadillac’s head, the duties were handed to Andy Palmer, but he left Nissan last week to become the new CEO of Aston Martin.

Krueger will not only be the new president of Infiniti but also the senior vice president pa Nissan. He is also an adventurer as he was the first German to trek solo to the South Pole, without any food deliveries, motors or dogs.

"Roland Krüger has a consistent record of high performance in the premium automotive sector," said Ghosn. "He brings unique leadership skills that will accelerate Infiniti's progress in the global premium market."
