France expects Renault to call new CEO in just a few days
PARIS — French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire stated on Tuesday he anticipated Renault to call its new CEO in just a few days.
Luca de Meo, who stepped down as the pinnacle of Volkswagen Group’s Seat model final week, is seen as a frontrunner for the job, though a stringent non-compete clause in his contract with VW Group might show a hurdle, sources have instructed Reuters.
Le Maire additionally stated on French CNews TV that media studies that some Nissan executives needed to interrupt up the alliance with Renault had been “malicious.”
Renault’s board ousted Thierry Bollore, a Ghosn-era appointee, as CEO in October. The automaker’s finance chief, Clotilde Delbos, is interim CEO.
