Focus On Nissan's New Leadership Structure

Focus on Nissan's new leadership structure

Nissan Motor has been reviewing its management structure in light of the accusations leveled at former Chair Carlos Ghosn. As part of that effort, the automaker convened a panel with 3rd-party experts for the fourth time on Sunday.

It's apparently looking to create stronger roles for outside directors on the company's board.

Sources say some panel members want an independent entity to decide executive compensation and appointments to the board. That's to give outside board members more say on those matters.

The panel is also discussing whether board meetings should be chaired by an outside director, rather than the company chairman.

The goal is to compile a final proposal for the shake-up, at a meeting scheduled for March 27th.

After that, the new management structure will be put to the vote at a shareholders' meeting in June.
