Nissan says found no evidence of 'inappropriate' role by Nada in Ghosn probe
Nissan announced that Hari Nada, senior vice president, has been appointed senior advisor overseeing special projects. He will continue to report to Yasuhiro Yamauchi, representative executive officer, acting president and chief executive officer. Although Nissan has found no evidence of inappropriate involvement by Nada in the internal investigation into executive misconduct led by former Chairman Carlos Ghosn and others, the change is aimed to avoid undue suspicion and to enable him to focus on important tasks for the company, such as forthcoming legal action, the car maker said. Hitoshi Kawaguchi, currently executive officer, executive vice president and Chief Sustainability Officer overseeing Global External and Government Affairs, Global Communications, Corporate Services, Environment/CSR, IP Promotion, and the Corporate Management Office, will also oversee the Corporate Advisory Office, the Legal Department, Intellectual Property and the Chief Security Office. He will continue to report to Yasuhiro Yamauchi, representative executive officer, acting president and chief executive officer.
