One of the world's most influential business leaders and the first executive to run two Fortune Global 500 companies simultaneously, Carlos Ghosn is Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, one of the world's largest automotive groups. Carlos is also Chairman and CEO of France's Groupe Renault, and serves as chairman of Japan's Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp.
In addition, Carlos oversees the Alliance's majority interest in the join venture that controls AVTOVAZ, Russia's largest automaker. The Alliance companies together sold 9.96 million vehicles in 2016 - more than one in nine sold worldwide.
Mr Ghosn has been the industry's leading advocate for sustainable transportation: Renault and Nissan were the first automakers to launch a range of affordable zero-emission vehicles. He is also leading the Alliance's pioneering effort to develop autonomous-drive and connected-car technologies.
