Carlos Ghosn Resigns As Renault Chairman

January 24, 2019 – Carlos Ghosn, who has been in detention in Japan for over two months on charges of financial misconduct, has resigned as Renault SA’s CEO and chairman, the French finance minister was quoted as saying by Bloomberg Television earlier today.

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said in an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos that Ghosn resigned “last night,” Bloomberg Television reported.

Renault’s board is set to meet later today to discuss a replacement.

Ghosn was dismissed as chairman of Nissan Motor Co., the French carmaker’s alliance partner, in November.
