Share11 October 2019The French automaker Renault, at the end of an extraordinary board of directors, announced the dismissal, with immediate effect, of the managing director, Thierry Bolloré.
The new CEO, ad interim, is the financial manager Clotilde Delbos, "until the process to appoint a new managing director is completed", the French carmaker explains in a statement.
Since the beginning of his appointment in January 2019, Bolloré has failed to build good relations with Nissan, a Japanese group in the alliance that also includes Mitsubishi. The group's results also weighed heavily on its work, which lost 700 million euros in the first half of the year.
Bolloré was the last survivor among management figures to be linked to former alliance president Carlos Ghosn, who was arrested in Japan in November 2018 for suspected tax fraud.
