Carlos Ghosn

Company: Renault-Nissan- Mitsubishi Motors

Designation: Chairman

Though Ghosn says he will likely step down as CEO of Renault before his term ends in 2022, he’ll stay on as chairman, while moving forward as CEO and chairman of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance.

In this role he is preparing the automakers for the shift towards electric and self-driving vehicles, having restructured Renault, reviving Nissan and steering the latter’s purchase of a 34 percent stake in Mitsubishi. Ghosn was born in Brazil to Lebanese parents.
