Nissan considers seats for Renault chairman, CEO on new committees, report says

Nissan plans to give seats on its four proposed committees to alliance partner Renault’s CEO, Thierry Bollore, and its Chairman, Jean-Dominique Senard, Japan’s Nikkei newspaper reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

Reuters reported last week that Nissan was considering having Renault executives as members of nomination, audit and compensation committees, after the French automaker expressed discontent with Nissan’s envisioned governance reform.

Nissan is proposing an additional board committee possibly named “strategy committee,” the Nikkei said.

A spokesman for the Japanese automaker told Reuters it would not comment on the report, and that no announcements have been made.

The 20-year-old partnership has been strained since former leader Carlos Ghosn was arrested for suspected financial misconduct in November. He denies wrongdoing.

The alliance, which includes Mitsubishi Motors, was plunged urther into crisis this month as Renault‘s demand for a greater say in Nissan’s governance drew rare public censure by the Japanese automaker.

Nissan will hold a shareholder meeting on June 25 to vote on its overhauled governance structure.
